Jason Biggs (“Orange is the New Black,” “American Pie”) and Bryce Pinkham, the Tony-nominated co-star of “A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder,” also will appear in the 1988 comedy. Pam MacKinnon, who won a Tony for her direction of “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” and will helm this fall’s revival of “A Delicate Balance” starring Glenn Close, directs “Heidi,” which will also star Off Broadway regular Tracee Chimo (“Bad Jews,” “Orange is the New Black”).
One of the best-known plays penned by the late Wasserstein, “Heidi Chronicles” follows the title character from her 1960s high school days through her career as an art historian. It hasn’t appeared on Broadway since the initial 1989 transfer of the Off Broadway staging at Playwrights Horizons.
Exact dates and theater remain to set to “Heidi,” but previews will begin in February prior to a March opening. The limited engagement looks sure to be on the boards when “Mad Men,” which traditionally launches its seasons in April, finishes off the seven-episode run of the second half of its final season.
Jeffrey Richards and Jerry Frankel, who produced the revival of “Speed-the-Plow” in which Moss starred, leads a team of producers that also includes Susan Gallin, Mary Lu Roffe, Sally Horchow, Rebecca Gold, Wally Hays, Jam Theatricals, Gabrielle Palitz, Jessica Genick, and Will Trice.
