If you’re looking for The Velocity of Autumn Tickets on Broadway, ScoreBig.com has guaranteed savings just for you.
Alexandria is an old school, passionate type of gal – one that will do anything, including blocking herself into her Brooklyn residence armed with Molotov Cocktails, to ensure she’ll live out her years in peace and tranquility. Family members attempt to sway her one of many different ways, but the witty protagonist is stuck on staying. Things are (relatively) normal, until the bombshell drops: an estranged son comes back out of the blue after disappearing for 20 years. What happens next is just utter chaos.
The CastEstelle Parsons plays the lead role of Alexandria. Parsons is no stranger to the big stage, recording an Academy Award for her work in Bonnie and Clyde and August: Osage County. She gives you everything you could ask for, and more, in the role of Alexandria. Her counterpart is her estranged son, Chris, played by Stephen Spinella. Spinella has a great track record of his own; two Tony awards for the major role he played in Angels in America. Director Molly Smith has a true Tony contender with The Velocity of Autumn.
