The trio of producers behind “August: Osage County” and “Speed-the-Plow” will produce a Broadway revival of “Look Homeward, Angel” next fall.
Jeffrey Richards, Jerry Frankel and Steve Traxler will produce the show, with Daniel Sullivan helming an adaptation by David Auburn. No cast is yet attached.
Production is the first Broadway revival for Ketti Frings’ 1957 play, based on the 1929 novel by Thomas Wolfe. Show originally ran for about a year and a half, and Frings won a Pulitzer in 1958 for her script.
Auburn also has picked up a Pulitzer, scoring one in 2001 for “Proof,” which Sullivan helmed. Sullivan’s last Rialto credit was “The Homecoming,” another revival backed by Richards, Frankel and Traxler.
Plot of “Angel,” based on thinly veiled elements of Wolfe’s life, centers on the formative experiences of Wolfe stand-in Eugene Gant, including first love, a family death and the battle to escape his upbringing.
“Angel” is planned to play in a Shubert theater to be determined.
