Linda Cho to Make Broadway Debut with The Velocity of Autumn

Estelle Parsons stars in The Velocity of Autumn

Eric Coble’s new two-character play, The Velocity of Autumn, will bow on Broadway in spring 2013 with a cast led by Academy Award winner Estelle Parsonsand two-time Tony winner Stephen Spinella.

The Velocity of Autumn swirls around 80-year-old Alexandra, an artist facing the indignities of old age and her family’s insistence on moving her to a nursing home.  With nothing to lose, Alexandra has locked herself in her Brooklyn brownstone with a pile of Molotov cocktails and is now in a standoff with her children and the police.  When Alexandra is visited by her youngest son Chris – who has climbed into her second floor window ending a 20-year absence from her life – in the blink of an eye the emotional bombs start detonating.
This marks Linda’s Broadway debut. Other New York credits include Manhattan Theater Club; Theater For A New Audience; Second Stage; Vineyard Theater; Lincoln Center Theatre; The Public Theater; New York Theater Workshop; Atlantic Theater Company; Classic Stage Company; The Acting Company; Labyrinth Theatre Company; The Pearl Theatre and Juilliard School among others.

Joining Linda on the design team are Eugene Lee (scenic design), Howell Binkley (lighting design), and Darron L West (sound design).
