'Last Summer at Bluefish Cove' To Make Broadway Premiere

Last Summer at Bluefish Cove is Broadway bound!

This Harriet Newman Leve, Ellen DeGeneres, Portia de Rossi, Lily Tomlin and Jane Wagner produced production marks the 40th anniversary of the landmark lesbian play that broke new ground when it premiered Off-Broadway in 1980. Last Summer at Bluefish Cove is written byJane Chambers and will be directed by Cynthia Nixon. Casting, creative team, theatre and dates will be announced at a later date.

It’s 1980 at Bluefish Cove: a lesbian beachside haven. Lil Zalinski and her close knit group of friends take refuge here each summer to live and love freely. When a straight woman named Eva wanders unknowingly into their midst, she sends The Cove into a tailspin and knocks Lil off her feet.
