|Here’s another great find from the archives. In 2000, Toni received a Tony Award nomination as Best Performance by a Leading Actress in a Musical for playing Queenie in “The Wild Party”, only months after receiving an Oscar nomination for “The Sixth Sense”. The Tony went to Heather Headley for “Aida”. But maybe, with the recent news of Toni’s return to Broadway in “The Realistic Joneses”, we’ll be seeing her at the ceremony again soon.|

A plum cast has been assembled for the Broadway transfer of Will Eno’s dark comedy, The Realistic Joneses, which will bring together Toni Collette, Michael C. Hall, Tracy Letts and Marisa Tomei. Set in a small rural town, the play observes the intertwining lives of two neighboring couples who live in identical houses and share the same last name, as they are forced to choose between perfect fantasies and imperfect realities. It premiered in May last year at Yale Repertory Theater in New Haven, Conn., in an acclaimed staging directed by Sam Gold. Reviewing that production in The New York Times, Charles Isherwood called it a “tender, funny, terrific new play.” Gold, who directed Theresa Rebeck’s Seminar and William Inge’s Picnic on Broadway and has a long list of lauded off-Broadway productions to his name, also will stage the New York transfer of Eno’s play. However, Letts is the sole holdover from the original cast. Firm dates and a theater have not yet been announced for the production, which is expected to begin previews in February for a late-March official opening. Richards and Frankel are lead producers on the current revival of The Glass Menagerie, which opened last month to rapturous reviews and strong business; they also recently announced plans to bring in Robert Schenkkan’s drama All the Way this season, starring Bryan Cranston as Lyndon B. Johnson. Collette previously appeared on Broadway in 2000 in the musical The Wild Party, for which she received a Tony nomination.
