About the Show

Following their triumphant production of The Ferryman, Tony-winning Playwright Jez Butterworth and Oscar® and Tony-winning Director Sam Mendes reunite for THE HILLS OF CALIFORNIA.

In the sweltering heat of a 1970s summer, the Webb sisters return to their childhood home in Blackpool, an English seaside town, where their mother Veronica lies dying upstairs. Gloria and Ruby now have families of their own. Jill never left. And Joan? No one’s heard from her in twenty years… but Jill insists that their mother’s favorite won’t let them down this time.

The run-down Sea View Guest House is haunted by bittersweet memories of amusement park rides and overdue bills. Back in the 1950s, each night the girls rehearse their singing act, managed by their fiercely loving single mom. But when a record producer offers a shot at fame and a chance to escape, it will cost them all dearly. With stunning design and glorious music, THE HILLS OF CALIFORNIA is “a rich, funny, brilliantly layered drama.” (Financial Times)

About the Theatre

Broadhurst Theater

235 W 44th St
New York, NY 10036

The Broadhurst Theatre was opened in 1917 and named after playwright George H. Broadhurst. Owned by the Shubert Organization, it has been and continues to be the home to many legendary plays and musicals.

The Broadhurst theatre was constructed to house both musicals and plays and was meant to resemble the style of the neighboring Shubert and Booth theaters. This New York City landmark has been home to many Hollywood celebrities such as Hugh Jackman, Al Pacino, Jude Law, Daniel Radcliffe, and Terrence Howard.
