Five-time Tony winner Susan Stroman will direct the Broadway premiere of Delia Ephron's Left on Tenth, based on Ephron's New York Times best-selling memoir.

Daryl Roth will produce the play, which will open in the fall at a theatre to be announced. The forthcoming production will co-star Emmy winner Julianna Margulies as Delia and Golden Globe winner Peter Gallagher as Peter.

Left on Tenth is a true story about love, hope, and the wonder of second chances. When she least expected it, writer Ephron made a surprising connection with a man from her past and fell into her own romantic comedy.

“I am grateful and thrilled to be working with these champions of theatre—Susan Stroman and Daryl Roth,” said Ephron in a statement. “Left on Tenth is about a perilous and wondrous time of my life. We invite you to join our team of warriors and become believers yourselves.”

“When Delia first spoke to me about her manuscript of Left on Tenth, I felt that her story would make a magnificent play,” added producer Roth. “It is heartfelt, deeply personal yet universal, and full of hope. But it is also a classic romantic comedy for a certain generation, showing us that we can all be blessed with a second chance at life and love.”

Margulies made her Broadway debut in 2006 in Festen, directed by Rufus Norris. She was also seen in Jon Robin Baitz's Ten Unknowns at Lincoln Center for which she won the Lucille Lortel Award. Her other theatrical credits include The Substance of Fire, The Vagina Monologues, Intrigue with Faye, and Fefu and Her Friends.

Gallagher's Broadway credits include Guys and Dolls (Drama Desk nomination), Long Day’s Journey Into Night (Tony nomination), The Real Thing (The Clarence Derwent Award), The Corn is Green (Theatre World Award), A Doll’s Life, Noises Off, The Country Girl, Grease, and On the Twentieth Century.

Ephron's novels include Siracusa and The Lion Is In, and her books of essays and humor include SisterMotherHusbandDog (etc) and How to Eat Like a Child. Her many movie credits—often co-written with her late sister Nora Ephron—include You’ve Got Mail, Michael, and Hanging Up, based on her novel. Her sister and she co-authored the play Love, Loss and What I Wore.
