Annette Bening, Tracy Letts to Star in Broadway Revival of ‘All My Sons’

Arthur Miller’s 1947 drama was last revived a decade ago

Annette Bening and Tony winner Tracy Letts will return to Broadway this spring in a new revival of Arthur Miller’s 1947 drama “All My Sons.”

Gregory Mosher will direct the new production, set to begin previews on April 4 in advance of an official opening on April 22 at Roundabout’s American Airlines Theatre. The limited engagement will run through June 23, 2019.

Bening and Letts will play the heads of the Keller family as it struggles to stay intact and to fight for its future just after World War II when a long-hidden secret threatens to emerge — forcing the clan to reckon with greed, denial, repentance and post-war disenchantment across generations.

The remaining cast members and design team have yet to be announced.

Miller’s drama has become a staple on Broadway since the original production, which won Tony Awards for both Miller and director Elia Kazan.

A 1987 revival starring Richard Kiley won the Tony for Best Revival, while a 2008 revival with John Lithgow and Dianne Wiest marked the Broadway debut of Katie Holmes.

Letts is the only individual to win Tony awards as both an actor, for a 2013 revival of “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” and as a playwright, for 2008’s “August: Osage County.”

Bening, who made her Broadway debut in 1987’s “Coastal Disturbances,” is a four-time Oscar nominee, most recently for 2010’s “The Kids Are All Right.” She won a Golden Globe for that film as well as 2004’s “Being Julia.”
