‘Estate’ finds new home in Hartford

Production to be revived in the spring

There’s still life in the Lincoln Center Theater presentation of Horton Foote’s play “Dividing the Estate.”

The production, which closed its limited Broadway run Sunday at the Booth Theater, will be revived at Connecticut’s Hartford Stage in the spring. The show will end the regional theater’s season, playing May 28-June 28.

Michael Wilson, who helmed the Gotham staging, is a.d. at Hartford Stage.

“Estate” bumps the previously skedded “Gee’s Bend” into the 2009-10 season at Hartford.

Most of the Broadway cast –including Hallie Foote, Penny Fuller, Arthur French and Gerald McRaney — will reprise their stage roles in Hartford. The participation of thesp Elizabeth Ashley, however, remains uncertain, because later this month the actress, who played the family matriarch in “Estate,” will join the Broadway production of “August: Osage County.”

Wilson said there is strong interest in a future life for the show beyond Hartford, with other regional theaters wanting to mount their own productions. Wilson’s production originated at Off Broadway’s Primary Stages in 2007.
