In one of the most hailed performances of the season, two-time Tony Award nominee, Emmy Award and Golden Globe winner Alan Rickman (Private Lives, Les Liaisons Dangereuses, the Harry Potter franchise) makes his eagerly-anticipated return to Broadway starring in the World Premiere of SEMINAR, the new hit comedy by Pulitzer Prize finalist and Peabody Award winner Theresa Rebeck (Mauritius, Omnium Gatherum, “NYPD Blue,” NBC’s “Smash”). Directed by acclaimed Obie Award winner Sam Gold (Circle Mirror Transformation, The Aliens, Look Back in Anger, The Big Meal), the production opened Sunday, November 20 at The Golden Theatre (252 West 45th Street).
SEMINAR also stars Tony Award nominee Lily Rabe (The Merchant of Venice, Steel Magnolias, “American Horror Story”), Obie Award winner Hamish Linklater (The School for Lies, Twelfth Night, “The New Adventures of Old Christine”), film and television star Jerry O’Connell (Jerry Maguire, Stand By Me, “The Defenders,” “Crossing Jordan”) and actress Hettienne Park (Tony Kushner’s The Intelligent Homosexual’s Guide… at The Public, “The Good Wife”).
In SEMINAR, four aspiring young novelists (Ms. Rabe, Mr. Linklater, Mr. O’Connell and Ms. Park) sign up for private writing classes with Leonard (Mr. Rickman), an international literary figure. Under his recklessly brilliant and unorthodox instruction, some thrive and others flounder, alliances are made and broken, sex is used as a weapon and hearts are unmoored. The wordplay is not the only thing that turns vicious as innocence collides with experience in this provocative new comedy.
