Eugene Ionesco’s great absurdist comedy Exit the King comes to Broadway for a strictly limited fourteen-week engagement, starring the peerless Academy Award winners Geoffrey Rush and Susan Sarandon. This momentous production marks Mr. Rush’s Broadway debut and Ms. Sarandon’s first time on Broadway in over twenty-five years. The cast also stars Emmy Award nominee Lauren Ambrose and Tony Award winner Andrea Martin.

Exit the King is a hilarious and poignant comedy about a megalomaniacal ruler, King Berenger (Rush) whose incompetence has left his country in near ruin. Despite the efforts of Queen Marguerite (Sarandon) and the other members of the court to convince the King he has only 90 minutes left to live, he refuses to relinquish any control.

Review - It's... Exit The King
by Kristin Salaky - April 5, 2009

No dear playgoers, it has not come to pass that some smart producer put up a quickie, low-budget revival of Spamalot in the Barrymore Theatre and tried cutting costs by removing all the songs. But there's definitely a Pythonic style in the look and text of Ionesco's Exit The King as co-adapted by Geoffrey Rush (who also stars) and Neil Armfield (who also directs). You can sense it in the way Brian Hutchison, as a faithfully detail-oriented armored guard, dutifully announces each royal occurrence as it happens, correcting himself, when necessary, with bellowing authority ('The King is dead.'... 'The King's alive.'... 'Long live the king.'). It's there when AndRea Martin, as a sullen, much-abused servant, makes a comic production out of trying to keep the monarchs' royal robes draped straight, and it's abundantly present when Rush, as the 400-year-old King Berenger, who is down to his last 90 minutes of life ('When the play is over you'll be dead.'), kicks up what's left of his heels in a silly little dance.
