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

company has created some of the most thrilling theater of the last decade including 2013’s Olivier Award-winning revival of Macbeth which starred 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 Jamie Lloyd Company production of A Doll’s House is produced on Broadway by Ambassador Theatre Group, Gavin Kalin Productions, and Wessex Grove.
