The picture-perfect facade of '50s-era family life is torn away in Far From Heaven, the stage adaptation of the Oscar-nominated romantic melodrama from director Todd Haynes (I'm Not There, Mildred Pierce). While managing a household that would show-up the Cleavers in its neatness and apparent civility, a Connecticut housewife discovers her husband's secret ... only to seek comfort in a forbidden relationship of her own.
