Say goodbye to Inheritance on Broadway, because it’s, unfortunately, ending its run.
According to Playbill, the first Broadway production of Matthew Lopez’s play that explored many generations of gay men and life is coming to a close. The show was a re-imagining of E.M. Forster’s Howard’s End and saw gay men of many generations as they dealt with the aftermath of the AIDS crisis and exploring what it means to be gay in America today.
The production directed by Stephen Daldry is set to have its final performance at the Ethel Barrymore Theater on March 15. By then, the two-part play will have had 46 previews and 138 performances.
The Broadway cast featured Jordan Barbour, Ryan M. Buggle, Jonathan Burke, Andrew Burnap, Darryl Gene Daughtry Jr., Dylan Frederick, Tony Goldwyn, Kyle Harris, Paul Hilton, Samuel H. Levine, Carson McCalley, Tre Ryder, Lois Smith, Kyle Soller, and Arturo Luís Soria.
When announcing this end to the production, producers Tom Kirdahy, Sonia Friedman, and Hunter Arnold released the following statement:
“From its first preview at the Young Vic in 2018 through the West End and Broadway runs, audiences have been profoundly moved by Matthew Lopez’ beautiful play and Stephen Daldry’s stunning production. We are all extremely proud of this production and the 32 actors who bring this ambitious story to life eight times a week and honor the legacy of those we’ve lost to the AIDS epidemic. We thank all of the actors, crew, co-producers, audience members, and community partners who have made this run such a milestone for everyone involved.”
