Henrik Ibsen's "A Doll's House" scandalized audiences when it debuted in 1879 by questioning the roles of men and women in marriage, when protagonist Nora walked out on her husband and three children.
Now, more than 130 years later, playwright Lucas Hnath imagines what happens 15 years after Nora's exit, when she returns to her family in "A Doll’s House, Part 2." The Broadway show has received eight Tony Award nominations.
