From the producers: Following a near fatal car accident, a world-famous novelist finds himself in a strange house being nursed back to health by his doting, self-proclaimed Number One Fan. But as her love for his work turns to dangerous obsession, he realizes he must plot his greatest story yet: how to escape with his life.
The new play has a script by Academy Award winner William Goldman ("The Princess Bride"), who returns to Broadway for the first time since his 1962 play "A Family Affair." He also wrote the screenplay to the 1990 film adaptation, which starred James Caan and Kathy Bates, who won an Academy and Golden Globe Award for her performance.
Bruce Willis begn his career on the Off-Broadway stage and then in television in the 1980s, most notably as David Addison in "Moonlighting." He is perhaps best known for his role of John McClane in the "Die Hard" film series. He has appeared in over sixty films, including "Pulp Fiction," "12 Monkeys," "The Fifth Element," "The Sixth Sense," "Unbreakable," and "Sin City."
Laurie Metcalf earned her most recent Tony nomination in 2013 for "The Other Place." She was also nominated in 2009 for her performance in "November." Metcalf earned three Emmy Awards for her work on the TV series “Roseanne."
