About The Year of Magical Thinking - On Broadway

Show Info


Academy and Tony Award winner Vanessa Redgrave returns to the Broadway stage in Joan Didion’s searing and achingly beautiful new play The Year of Magical Thinking, from Didion’s best-selling memoir. Directed by Oscar nominee David Hare (The Hours), this heart-rending and ultimately inspiring new work is already the most anticipated of the spring season. Redgrave re-lives that unimaginable night in Didion’s life when her husband of 40 years, fellow writer John Gregory Dunne, died suddenly of a massive coronary as they sat down to dinner in their New York apartment. With raw candor and a storyteller’s gift for the absurd, Redgrave tells Didion’s story of unfathomable grief as lived in a thousand details. An astonishing performance that captures the compassion, humor and bewilderment of a fiercely intelligent woman whose world moves suddenly from ordinary to catastrophic.
