Three Tall Women has found its final female.

Alison Pill is set to join Glenda Jackson and Laurie Metcalf in the Broadway premiere of Edward Albee’s Pulitzer-winning play.

Joe Mantello will direct the staging, produced by Scott Rudin. It will begin previews Feb. 27, 2018, ahead of a March 29 opening night at the Golden Theatre.

Three Tall Women is a beautifully wrought portrait of a woman in life's final act, and is Albee's most personal work. In addition to winning the Pulitzer Prize for drama in 1994, it received the New York Drama Critics Circle, Lucille Lortel and Outer Critics Circle awards for best play.

Pill — an alum of HBO's The Newsroom, most recently seen onscreen in the ABC drama The Family and the political thriller Miss Sloane, opposite Jessica Chastain — earned a Tony nomination for best actress in a play for 2006's The Lieutenant of Inishmore, her Broadway debut. Her other Broadway appearances include The House of Blue Leaves, The Miracle Worker and Mauritius, and her off-Broadway credits include This Wide Night, Reasons to Be Pretty and the U.S. premieres of Blackbird and The Distance From Here. She will next be seen onscreen in the FX anthology series American Horror Story: Cult. She is repped by CAA and the Burstein Company.
