Encore for Comedy by Horton Foote

Horton Foote’s “Dividing the Estate” is one of the many Broadway productions that played its final performance on Sunday (it was planned as a limited engagement), but the show will go on in the spring. Hartford Stage has announced that the play, with most of the New York cast intact, will be presented in Hartford from May 28 to July 5, when it will replace the theater’s previously planned gospel musical “Gee’s Bend,” which has been postponed until next season. Mr. Foote’s comedy about a bickering Texas family is directed by Michael Wilson, the artistic director of Hartford Stage. His Connecticut production will feature the entire creative team from the recent co-production of Lincoln Center Theater and Primary Stages. The cast — including Hallie Foote, Arthur French, Penny Fuller and Gerald McRaney — will also head to Hartford but without Elizabeth Ashley. Ms. Ashley, who played the family matriarch, will join the Broadway company of “August: Osage County” next month.
