The Heidi Chronicles is the poignant coming-of-age story of three iconic decades of American culture: the 60s, 70s, and 80s. Through Heidi Holland, now a successful art historian, Wendy Wasserstein looks back on the promises of a generation in the Pulitzer and Tony Award®-winning work that established her voice in the canon of quintessential theater forever. In its first Broadway revival, a bold reimagining led by Tony Award-winning director Pam MacKinnon (Edward Albee’s Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?), and Golden Globe®-winner Elisabeth Moss (“Mad Men”) in the title role, The Heidi Chronicles charts 19 characters through 13 scenes in 3 decades and 4 cities, as three unlikely friends come to realize that the fight for what you believe in can bring you a long way… maybe.
