'Grace,' 'Heiress' set dates, venues

Broadway’s fall season has begun falling into place, with Main Stem plays “Grace” and “The Heiress” both setting theaters and dates.

New play “Grace,” by Craig Wright, will land at the Cort Theater, which last housed short-lived spring offering “The Lyons.” Starring Paul Rudd, Michael Shannon, Kate Arrington and Ed Asner, the Dexter Bullard-helmed production of “Grace” will begins preview Sept. 13 ahead of an Oct. 4 opening.

Production also has locked in its design team, which will include Beowulf Boritt (sets), David Weiner (lights) and Tif Bullard (costumes).

The Heiress,” meanwhile, will inherit the Walter Kerr Theater, where best play Tony winner “Clybourne Park” is in the midst of a run currently set to end Sept. 2. New occupant moves in for a limited stint that starts Oct. 7 prior to a Nov. 1 opening.

“Heiress” also has added Tony winner Judith Ivey (“Steaming,” “Hurlyburly”), to a cast that already includes Jessica Chastain, David Strathairn and Dan Stevens. Moises Kauffman directs the revival, with a design team that includes Derek McLane (sets), Albert Wolsky (costumes), David Lander (lights), Peter Golub (original music) and Leon Rothenberg (sound).

“Grace” and “Heiress” join a fall 2012 slate of play productions that also includes commercial outings “Glengarry Glen Ross,” “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” and “The Anarchist” along with nonprofit productions including “An Enemy of the People” and “Cyrano de Bergerac.”
