Los Angeles, Nov 8 (PTI) Armie Hammer is set to return to Broadway with Tracy Letts' new play 'The Minutes'.

Letts, who won both a Tony Award and a Pulitzer Prize for Drama for 'August: Osage County', also stars in the play along with Blair Brown, K Todd Freeman, Austin Pendleton and Jessie Mueller.

Directed by Anna D Shapiro, another Tony winner for 'August: Osage County', the production begins previews on February 25 ahead of a March 15 official opening at the Cort Theatre, New York.

According to Deadline, the limited 16-week engagement is scheduled to run through June 14.

The play is a satirical view of municipal civics that reflects the contentious divisions tearing apart the country and shredding democracy.

Letts will play the mayor of Big Cherry, the play's fictional small-town setting, while Hammer will essay the role of an idealistic whistleblower character newly elected to the council. PTI SHDSHD
