Two dramas affected by the coronavirus pandemic—Tracy Letts’ The Minutes and David Mamet’s American Buffalo—have set new Broadway dates.
The Steppenwolf Theatre production of The Minutes, which was set to officially open March 15, played its final performance March 11 while still in previews. Directed by Anna D. Shapiro, the play will return to Broadway the week of March 1, 2021, and will officially open March 15, 2021, exactly one year after its originally planned opening date.
The play, which featured Ian Barford, Blair Brown, Cliff Chamberlain, K. Todd Freeman, Armie Hammer, playwright Letts, Danny McCarthy, Jessie Mueller, Sally Murphy, Austin Pendleton, and Jeff Still, takes place in a seemingly mundane city council meeting that illustrates American toxicity both historic and contemporary.

Armie Hammer — one of the stars of “Call Me by Your Name,” the buzzy film that looks poised to make a run at the Oscars — has lined up his Broadway debut this summer in the play “Straight White Men.”
He and Tom Skerritt will lead the cast of the show, produced by Second Stage Theater. Hammer is Second Stage’s latest casting headturner following news earlier this year that Chris Evans would star in Second Stage’s production of Kenneth Lonergan’s “Lobby Hero.” That play inaugurates the New York nonprofit’s takeover of Broadway’s Hayes Theatre, where “Straight White Men” will play after “Lobby Hero.”
Written by Young Jean Lee, “Straight White Men” follows a family Christmas gathering at which a man and his three adult sons come face to face with issues of identity and privilege. The play won raves in a separate Off Broadway run in 2014 at the Public Theater. Anna D. Shapiro (“August: Osage County,” “Fish in the Dark”) directs the Broadway incarnation. [Source]
