Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de Lune Summary

In this new Broadway production of Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de Lune, Audra McDonald and Michael Shannon, two of the most acclaimed actors of their generation, will bring the bruised dreamers of Terrence McNally’s classic romance to new life.

In the play, a lonely waitress and a short order cook's first date turns into a one-night stand—maybe more.

Audra McDonald (“there’s nothing the superhuman Ms. McDonald can’t do onstage” – Hollywood Reporter) last appeared on Broadway in the musicals Shuffle Along, Or, The Making of the Musical Sensation of 1921 and All That Followed and Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar & Grill — the role that also served as the vehicle for her record-breaking sixth Tony Award and 2017 debut on London’s West End (2018 Olivier Award nomination). Recently seen in the Academy Award-winning The Shape of Water, Michael Shannon (“a remarkable actor of force and strength” – Chicago Tribune) returns to Broadway after his Tony-nominated performance opposite Jessica Lange and Gabriel Byrne in A Long Day’s Journey into Night.

Four-time Tony Award winner Terrence McNally (“one of the greatest contemporary playwrights” – New York Observer) is currently represented on Broadway by his book for the hit musical Anastasia. And director Arin Arbus (“exemplary… a star in the making” – The New York Times) will make her Broadway debut with this production. For a decade, she served as the Associate Artistic Director of Theater for a New Audience, where she most recently staged The Winter’s Tale to great acclaim.

Originally produced more than 30 years ago Off-Broadway, Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de Lune is one of McNally’s most acclaimed plays and will appear on Broadway as the playwright celebrates his 80th birthday. The play was a runaway hit from 1987 to 1989, returned to Broadway in a highly praised production in 2002 and was also turned into a feature film.
