James Franco and Chris O'Dowd in 'Of Mice and Men' on Broadway


Surely one of this spring’s most interesting new productions on Broadway is the forthcoming revival of John Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men, starring James Franco and Chris O’Dowd in their Broadway debuts.

Take a look above at the new poster for the classic play, which also stars Gossip Girl‘s Leighton Meester (as Curley’s Wife) and Tony winner Jim Norton (as ranch hand Candy) in the production helmed by award-winning director Anna D. Shapiro.

Franco and O’Dowd are front and center in their iconic roles as George and Lennie (respectively), two migrant workers in search of a better life during the Great Depression. The revival will mark the first time in 40 years that Broadway will host Steinbeck’s masterpiece about the American dream; the first Broadway production opened in 1937, and the first revival ran in the 1974-75 season.

Of Mice and Men will begin previews on March 19, 2014 at the Longacre Theatre, with opening night set for April 16 and the limited engagement set to conclude on July 27.
