BWW Flashback: BETRAYAL Concludes Broadway Run Today
As BroadwayWorld previously reported, Betrayal on Broadway, starring Tom Hiddleston, Zawe Ashton, Charlie Cox, and Eddie Arnold will conclude its limited engagement today, December 8, after playing 22 previews and 109 regular performances.
This production formed the culmination of Pinter at the Pinter, an unprecedented London season of Harold Pinter's work taking place over the 2018/19 season. This mammoth project consisted of over thirty pieces including all one-act plays by the most important playwright of the 20th century. Marking the tenth anniversary of Pinter's death, Betrayal played in the West End theater that bears his name, breaking all box office records.
With poetic precision, rich humor, and an extraordinary emotional force, Betrayal charts a compelling seven-year romance, thrillingly captured in reverse chronological order. The complexities of the human heart are explored in this, "the greatest, and the most moving, of all Pinter's plays" (The Telegraph).
