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.
Mr. Langella's memoir Dropped Names will be released by HarperCollins in 2012. He was recently nominated for an Academy Award for his performance as "Richard Nixon" in Ron Howard's film Frost/Nixon and has subsequently appeared in Oliver Stone's Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, All Good Things and The Box. Mr. Langella returns to Broadway and Roundabout Theatre Company following his 2008 performance as "Sir Thomas More" in A Man for All Seasons. Previous Roundabout credits also include The Father (1996) and Cyrano De Bergerac (1997).
Man and Boy will play Tuesday through Saturday evening at 8:00PM with Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday matinees at 2:00PM.
