New York, NY (November 16, 2022) – Today, The Jamie Lloyd Company, the successful partnership between Ambassador Theatre Group and Artistic Director Jamie Lloyd, announced that Academy Award® winner Jessica Chastain will come to Broadway this spring as Nora Helmer in director Jamie Lloyd's radical new production of Henrik Ibsen's landmark drama A Doll's House, in a new version by Amy Herzog.

A Doll's House thrust drama firmly into the modern age when it premiered in 1879. Now, nearly a century-and-a-half later, Tony Award nominee Jamie Lloyd and acclaimed playwright Amy Herzog will make freshly relevant a story that shocked audiences and brought forth a new era of theater. One of the most acclaimed actors of her generation, Jessica Chastain will inhabit one of the theater's most iconic roles, re-energizing the play for a whole new generation.

Production dates, theater, ticketing information, creative team, and additional casting for A Doll's House will be announced shortly. To sign up to receive the latest news about A Doll's House on Broadway, please visit www.adollshousebway.com.

Jessica Chastain said, "When I sat down with the brilliant Jamie Lloyd five years ago to discuss a possible collaboration, I was over the moon when we decided on A Doll's House. We were set to start rehearsals in London in April 2020, but little did we know what the world (and a pandemic) had in store for us.

While home in New York, walking around the empty theater district made my heart hurt. New York has been my home for over 20 years and it's immensely important to me to take care of this city and support my artist neighbors.

So, I couldn't be happier to play Nora in A Doll's House on Broadway! I'm very excited to work with Jamie and the incredible Amy Herzog in this city that formed me. I hope in the future to work in the West End but for now I can't wait to be together with all of the wonderful people of New York and my artistic community on Broadway."

Next spring, The Jamie Lloyd Company will celebrate its 10th anniversary. The company has created some of the most thrilling theater of the last decade including 2013's Olivier Award-winning revival of Macbeth starring James McAvoy and Claire Foy and the landmark 2018 "Pinter at the Pinter" season, a celebration of the Nobel Prize-winning writer's work, which culminated in the critically lauded production of Betrayal starring Tom Hiddleston, Zawe Ashton and Charlie Cox. The production transferred to Broadway and received four Tony Award nominations including Best Revival of a Play and Best Director of a Play for Lloyd. Most recently, the company created their Olivier Award-winning production of Cyrano de Bergerac, which had a sold-out run last spring at BAM, and this summer's acclaimed production of The Seagull starring Emilia Clarke, which just ended a run at the Harold Pinter Theatre in London's West End.

The Jamie Lloyd Company production of A Doll's House is produced on Broadway by Ambassador Theatre Group, Gavin Kalin Productions, and Wessex Grove.
