Broadway Thriller GREY HOUSE Will Star Laurie Metcalf, Tatiana Maslany, Sophia Ann Caruso, More
The next Broadway season just got extra chilly. Levi Holloway’s spine-tingling play, Grey House, will premiere at the Lyceum Theatre next year. Previews will begin April 29 ahead of a May 30 opening night.
Directed by Tony winner Joe Mantello, the Broadway production will star two-time Tony winner Laurie Metcalf (A Doll’s House, Part 2), Emmy winner Tatiana Maslany (She-Hulk), Paul Sparks (House of Cards), Sophia Anne Caruso (Beetlejuice), and Millicent Simmonds (A Quiet Place). Additional casting will be announced at a later date.
The play begins with a car accident that strands a couple in the middle of a blizzard. Forced to seek shelter in a cabin, they discover several children (and other surprises) waiting for them inside. Soon, what seemed like a lifeline could be the very thing that ends it all.
Grey House made its world premiere at A Red Orchid Theatre in Chicago and went on to win three Jeff Awards, including for Best New Work in 2020. In 2019, the play was picked up by Heart of Darkness Pictures for a film adaptation after the critically acclaimed staging.
The creative team for Grey House includes scenic designer Scott Pask, costume designer Rudy Mance, lighting designer Natasha Katz, sound designer Tom Gibbons, music supervisor Or Matias, and choreographer Camille A. Brown. Casting is by David Caparelliotis with Foresight Theatrical as general management. Grey House is produced on Broadway by Tom Kirdahy and Robert Ahrens.
“The moment we encountered Levi Holloway's Grey House, we knew we had to produce this exciting, sophisticated, and terrifying new play,” said Kirdahy and Ahrens. “We are thrilled to bring the horror genre to Broadway…[it] will be unlike anything Broadway audiences have ever experienced.”
