The upcoming Main Stem premiere of Delia Ephron’s “Left on Tenth” has found its home. The previously announced play, based on Ephron’s memoir of the same name, will begin previews on Sept. 26 and open on Oct. 23 at the James Earl Jones Theatre for a limited engagement. The Susan Stroman-directed romantic comedy will star Julianna Margulies and Peter Gallagher.

“Working on ‘Left on Tenth’ has been a thrilling journey, collaborating with the incomparable Delia Ephron and bringing her story to life with the extraordinary talents of Julianna Margulies and Peter Gallagher,” Stroman said in a statement. “It’s an experience that seamlessly blends the magic of her storytelling with the brilliance of these actors.”

“Left on Tenth” follows Delia (Margulies) as she makes a surprise connection with a man (Gallagher) from her past while simultaneously reconciling with a change in her health. 

The production has released a teaser trailer.

Additional casting has also been revealed; Peter Francis James and Kate MacCluggage have joined the company in on-stage roles. James was most recently seen on the Main Stem in the 2022 revival of “Funny Girl” as Florenz Ziegfeld and previously appeared in 2019’s “Hillary and Clinton” and the 2017 revival of “Present Laughter.” MacCluggage made her Broadway debut as an understudy in 2007’s “Farnsworth Invention,” and made Off-Broadway appearances in “The 39 Steps” and “Greater Clements.” Casting is by Tara Rubin Casting.
