Roundabout's MAN AND BOY Begins Previews Tomorrow
Roundabout Theatre Company (Todd Haimes, Artistic Director) will present three-time Tony Award® winner Frank Langella as "Gregor Antonescu" in Terence Rattigan's drama Man and Boy, directed by Maria Aitken.
The cast also features Adam Driver as "Basil Anthony", Francesca Faridany as "Countess Antonescu",
Zach Grenier as "Mark Herries", Brian Hutchison as "David Beeston", Virginia Kull as "Carol Penn", Michael Siberry as "Sven Johnson".
As part of the centennial celebration of English playwright Terence Rattigan, Man and Boy will begin previews on September 9th and opens officially on October 9, 2011 at the American Airlines Theatre on Broadway (227 West 42nd Street). This will be a limited engagement through November 27, 2011.
The creative team includes Derek McLane (Sets), Martin Pakledinaz (Costumes), Kevin Adams (Lights) & John Gromada (Original Music and Sound Design).
At the height of the Great Depression, ruthless financier Gregor Antonescu's (Langella) business is dangerously close to crumbling. In order to escape the wolves at his door, Gregor tracks down his estranged son Basil in the hopes of using his Greenwich Village apartment as a base to make a company-saving deal. Can this reunion help them reconcile? Or will this corrupt father use his only son as a pawn in one last power play? Man and Boy is a gripping story about family, success and what we're willing to sacrifice for both.
