The rights to Amy Herzog’s Tony Award-nominated adaptation of “A Doll’s House” have been acquired by Concord Theatricals. The exclusive worldwide English-language stage-licensing rights will be available through Concord’s Samuel French imprint.
The revival of “A Doll’s House” began previews on Feb. 13 and officially opened on March 9 at the Hudson Theatre. The limited engagement received a one-week extension through June 10.
Nominated for six Tony Awards, the new staging of Henrik Ibsen’s drama is directed by Jamie Lloyd and stars Jessica Chastain in the lead role of Nora Helmer.
“I've been working with Samuel French for many years on my new plays, and I’m thrilled to reunite with their wonderful team on my very first adaptation,” Herzog said in a statement. “At a moment where women's rights are imperiled at home and abroad, I know Concord Theatricals will shepherd this timeless feminist classic and help Ibsen find a new audience for his masterwork.”
The revival of “A Doll’s House” is being produced on Broadway by the Jamie Lloyd Company, Ambassador Theatre Group, Gavin Kalin Productions and Wessex Grove.
