The play, starring Tomei, Toni Collette, Michael C. Hall and Tracy Letts will begin previews in mid-March and debut at the Shubert Theatre, April 6.
Tomei and Hall play John and Pony, who move in next door to Bob (Letts) and Jennifer (Collette) in their suburban neighborhood.
As it turns out, the couples both have the same last name, but there’s more to their freakish relationship than that.
They seem to have everything in common, from their identical houses to their idyllic fantasies and their imperfect realities, according to a show synopsis.
Most of all, they are united by the dread of a terminal disease and how each copes with impending death.
Directed by Sam Gold and written by Will Eno, the play premiered at Yale Repertory Theatre in New Haven, CT, in April a year ago. Letts was joined in the cast by Parker Posey, Glenn Fitzgerald and Johanna Day.
The New York Times called the play tender, funny and terrific.
