The lobby of a Manhattan apartment building is much more than a waiting area for four New Yorkers involved in a murder investigation. It's a testing ground for what happens when personal and professional personas find themselves at odds.


  • This is the second play by Kenneth Lonergan to make its Broadway debut more than a decade after first being produced Off Broadway. The other is This Is Our Youth.
  • This is the first production at the newly renovated Helen Hayes Theatre, which is now under the ownership of Second Stage Theatre and is "dedicated to living American playwrights."


Lobby Hero premiered Off Broadway at Playwrights Horizons in 2001, followed by a commercial transfer. This is the play’s first Broadway staging.
