Alison Pill, Glenda Jackson, Laurie Metcalf

There’s been talk about a revival of Edward Albee’s Three Tall Women for some time. Now, Academy Award winner Glenda Jackson joins Emmy and Tony Award winner Laurie Metcalf and Tony nominee Alison Pill as the titular females. Tony darling Joe Mantello (Take Me Out, Assassins, Wicked) directs the production, in which three women of different ages talk about their lives and relationships with their families — and are slowly revealed to be just one tall woman. Albee revealed in interviews that the work is inspired by his adoptive mother and the writing of the play was somewhat of “an exorcism.” Jackson hasn’t graced the boards of Broadway since 1988, when she starred as Lady M across from Christopher Plummer in Macbeth. Metcalf won a 2017 Tony Award for her recent performance in Lucas Hnath’s A Doll’s House, Part 2. And Pill has also garnered critical acclaim for a wide variety of projects on stage and screen — most recently as part of American Horror Story: Cult. Previews start on February 27.
