Tony Award winner Nathan Lane will return to Broadway this winter in Pictures From Home, a world premiere new play by Sharr White.
Lane will be joined by Tony-winner Danny Burstein and Olivier Award winner Zoe Wanamaker. Pictures From Home begins previews January 10, 2023 at Studio 54 and officially open February 9, 2023 for a strictly limited engagement. Creative team and ticketing information will be announced at a later date.
Pictures From Home brings to vivid theatrical life a comic and dramatic portrait of a mother, a father and the son who photographed their lives. Based on the photo memoir by Larry Sultan, adapted to the stage by White (The Other Place, Annapurna) and staged by award-winning director Bartlett Sher, Pictures From Home will evoke memories of childhood, parenthood, and the vicissitudes that comprise familial relationships.
Pictures From Home reunites Sher with both Wanamaker, whom he directed in Awake and Sing!, and Burstein, whom he directed in Fiddler on the Roof. The producing team is headed by Jeffrey Richards, Hunter Arnold, Rebecca Gold, Jayne Baron Sherman, Kayla Greenspan and Jacob Soroken Porter.
Lane last appeared on Broadway in Taylor Mac’s Gary: A Sequel to Titus Andronicus in 2019, opposite Kristine Nielsen and Julie White. This will be Lane’s first role on Broadway since the pandemic shutdown of 2020. Burstein returns to Broadway following his Tony win for Moulin Rouge!. Wanamaker last appeared on Broadway in 2006 in Awake and Sing!
Larry Sultan grew up in California’s San Fernando Valley, which became a source of inspiration for a number of his projects. His work blended documentary and staged photography to create images of the psychological as well as physical landscape of suburban family life. His pioneering book and exhibition Pictures From Home (1992) was a decade long project that features his own mother and father as its primary subjects, exploring photography’s role in creating familial mythologies.
