Laura Linney ’86 stars in “My Name Is Lucy Barton”<

We have another exciting Broadway theater event lined up for Tuesday, February 25th as four-time Tony nominee, three-time Oscar nominee and Brown alum Laura Linney ’86 gives a tour-de-force performance in My Name Is Lucy Barton. Tickets for this exclusive event can only be purchased by Brown Club in NY members.

Linney plays Lucy, who is hospitalized with a mysterious infection, as well as Lucy’s estranged mother, who pays her an unexpected visit. This spellbinding story is directed by five-time Olivier Award winner Richard Eyre. The solo play is adapted by Rona Munro from the best-selling novel by Elizabeth Strout.

“Ideally cast, Linney acts the way Elizabeth Strout writes in this compelling adaptation of the 2016 novel”
- Ben Brantley, NY Times Critics’ Pick
“A rich and complex new solo play luminously performed by Laura Linney”
