Wohl’s new comedic play, co-commissioned by Williamstown Theatre Festival and Second Stage Theatre, charts a family’s reaction to the sudden break-up of a 50-year marriage. As described by Second Stage: “Bill and Nancy have spent fifty full years as husband and wife. They practically breathe in unison, and can anticipate each other’s every sigh, snore and sneeze. But just as they settle comfortably into their new home in Grand Horizons, the unthinkable happens: Nancy suddenly wants out. As their two adult sons struggle to cope with the shocking news, they are forced to question everything they assumed about the people they thought they knew best.”
Lopez has appeared on Broadwayin Pippin, In the Heights, Hollywood/Ukraine and as the original Diana Morales in A Chorus Line, among other productions.
