Laurie Metcalf and Tatiana Maslany will share the stage in the upcoming Broadway play “Grey House.”
Tony-winning director Joe Mantello of “Wicked,” “Take Me Out” and “Assassins” is directing the show, described as a “first-of-its-kind Broadway experience.” It is one of the few thrillers on the Great White Way.
Levi Holloway wrote “Grey House,” which takes place after a couple crashes their car in the mountains and take refuge in an isolated cabin. Somewhat unusual residents are eager to make their guests feel right at home. But as the blizzard outside grows and one night turns into many, the couple becomes less and less sure about their host, themselves, and the truth about why that noise in the walls keeps getting louder.

“Grey House” begins performances on April 29, 2023 and officially opens on May 30 at Broadway’s Lyceum Theatre.
