Elisabeth Moss is returning to Broadway to star in a revival of Wendy Wasserstein’s The Heidi Chronicles, the show’s producers told the New York Times today. This is the first Broadway revival of the show, which won both a Pulitzer Prize and a Tony in 1989. Moss will play Heidi, an art historian reflecting on her life; Jason Biggs will play Scoop Rosenbaum, a writer in Heidi’s orbit; and Bryce Pinkham, a Tony nominee for his role in A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder, will play Peter Patrone, Heidi’s gay BFF. Moss had been in negotiations for the role since this spring, but now it’s a done deal, with the show scheduled to begin performances in February. Given that timeline, it now seems unlikely that Moss will be one of the leads on the second season of True Detective, but if you really want to see her in a murder show, you can still watch Top of the Lake.
