The Broadway premiere of Matthew Lopez's The Inheritance, directed by Stephen Daldry, will play its final performance at the Ethel Barrymore Theater March 15. The two-part epic, which opened last fall, will have played 46 previews (28 of The Inheritance Part 1 and 18 of The Inheritance Part 2) and 138 performances (86 of The Inheritance Part 1 and 52 of The Inheritance Part 2) at the time of closing.

A re-imagining of E.M. Forster's Howards End in present-day New York City, The Inheritance follows a cross-generational group of men as they deal with the aftermath of the AIDS crisis and what it means to be gay in contemporary America.
