Three of the theatre’s most inventive, inspired and award-winning artists will return to the stage in the Broadway premiere of Pictures From Home, which 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 Sharr White (The Other Place, Annapurna), starring Nathan Lane, Danny Burstein and Zoë Wanamaker 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 will begin previews on Tuesday, January 10, 2023 at Studio 54 on Broadway (254 W 54th Street) and officially open on Thursday, February 9, 2023 for a strictly limited engagement. The creative team and ticketing information will be announced at a later date.
Nathan Lane, who won a 2022 Emmy Award for his guest actor turn on Hulu’s “Only Murders in the Building”, is a three-time Tony Award winner for Angels in America, The Producers and A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum. In addition to his numerous and notable stage and screen credits (he has appeared in 24 Broadway productions and in more than 35 films), he has won six Drama Desk Awards, an Olivier Award, a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and was inducted into the American Theatre Hall of Fame. Lane was recently seen as Ward McAllister in Julian Fellowes’ period drama “The Gilded Age” for HBO, and he will return for the show’s second season. Danny Burstein won the 2021 Tony Award for his performance as ‘Harold Zidler’ in Moulin Rouge on Broadway, which also earned him a Drama League Award, a Grammy nomination and an Outer Critics Circle Award. He has starred in 18 Broadway shows and received Tony nominations for Fiddler on the Roof, Cabaret, Golden Boy, Follies, South Pacific and The Drowsy Chaperone. For his stage work, he has also won three Outer Critics Circle Awards, two Drama Desk Awards and a Distinguished Performance Drama League Award. Some of his recent, notable screen roles include “The Good Fight”, “Evil”, “Dr. Death”, The Same Storm and Tick, Tick Boom. Zoë Wanamaker is a two-time Olivier Award winner for Once In A Lifetime and Electra. She has received four Tony nominations for her work in Piaf, Loot, Electra and Awake and Sing!. Other notable stage credits include: “Elizbeth Proctor” in The Crucible (Royal National Theatre), “Silvia” in Silvia (Apollo Theatre), “Amanda Wingfield” in The Glass Menagerie (Donmar Warehouse) and “Madame Ranevskaya” in The Cherry Orchard (Royal National Theatre). Wanamaker is also known for her TV roles on the BBC sitcom “My Family”, “Prime Suspect” and on film as “Madame Hooch” in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone.
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.
