‘Mary Stuart’ to grace Broadway

Schiller's hit London play to bow in spring

The hit London staging of Friedrich Schiller’s history play “Mary Stuart” will come to Gotham in the spring, in a Broadway incarnation that reunites Brit stars Janet McTeer and Harriet Walter.

Phyllida Lloyd (“Mamma Mia!”) helms “Stuart,” which garnered strong reviews in an original production at the Donmar Warehouse in 2005 before it went on to a stint on the West End.

Rialto incarnation is produced by Arielle Tepper Madover, who also had a hand in the West End transfer, and Debra Black. Both Madover and Black were on the producing team of the 2007 Broadway transfer of “Frost/Nixon,” which also originated at the Donmar.

McTeer, who won a Tony in 1997 for her perf in “A Doll’s House,” plays Mary Queen of Scots to Walter’s Elizabeth I in Schiller’s 1800 play, in a version by Peter Oswald.

Further casting for “Stuart” remains to be announced. Production will play at a Shubert theater, although the exact venue and date remain to be confirmed.
