In addition, current acclaimed stars Jerry O'Connell (Jerry Maguire, Stand By Me, "The Defenders," "Crossing Jordan") and Hettienne Park (Tony Kushner's The Intelligent Homosexual's Guide... at The Public, "The Good Wife") will extend their runs. Directed by Obie Award winner Sam Gold (Circle Mirror Transformation, Kin, Look Back in Anger, The Big Meal), SEMINAR plays at The Golden Theatre (252 West 45th Street).
Two-time Tony Award nominee, Emmy Award and Golden Globe winner Alan Rickman (Private Lives, Les Liaisons Dangereuses, the Harry Potter franchise) will play his final performance on Sunday, April 1 in SEMINAR by Pulitzer Prize finalist and Peabody Award winner Theresa Rebeck (Mauritius, The Understudy, Omnium Gatherum, NBC's new hit series "Smash"), directed by Obie Award winner Sam Gold (Circle Mirror Transformation, The Aliens, Kin, The Coward). Academy Award and Emmy Award nominee Jeff Goldblum will make his return to Broadway when he assumes the leading role of ‘Leonard' on Tuesday, April 3 for 8 weeks only.
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.
