Deuce, with Lansbury and Seldes, Begins Previews April 11

By popular demand, four more performances have been added to the strictly limited run for Deuce.  The production will now begin performances on Wednesday, April 11 at the Music Box Theatre (239 West 45th Street).   Opening night is Sunday, May 6.    

Angela Lansbury and Marian Seldes will star in Deuce as two former doubles tennis legends, reunited at a championship match, in Mr. McNally's warmly funny and unexpectedly moving new play.

In her 60-plus year career on stage, film and television, Lansbury received four Tony Awards® for her starring roles in Mame, Dear World, Gypsy and Sweeney Todd, three Academy Award nominations for Gaslight (her screen debut), The Picture of Dorian Gray and The Manchurian Candidate, and 18 Emmy Award nominations, including 12 for her long-running television series, "Murder, She Wrote."

Seldes won a Tony for A Delicate Balance, and has been nominated for her performances in Father's Day, Deathtrap, Ring Round the Moon, and Dinner at Eight. Last season, she starred in McNally's Dedication, or the Stuff of Dreams.

McNally has won Tony Awards for his plays, Love! Valour! Compassion! and Master Class, and for his books for the musicals, Kiss of the Spider Woman and Ragtime. Blakemore won Tony Awards in the same year for his direction of the play, Copenhagen, and the musical, Kiss Me, Kate.

Additional casting and the Deuce creative team will be announced in coming weeks.

The show will be produced on Broadway by Scott Rudin, Stuart Thompson, Maberry Theatricals, The Shubert Organization, Roger Berlind, Debra Black, Bob Boyett, Susan Dietz and Daryl Roth.

Tickets are on sale at TeleCharge at 212: 239-6200, online at, or in person at the Music Box Theatre box office (239 West 45th Street).
