In 1782, Choderlos de Laclos' novel of sex, intrigue and betrayal in pre-revolutionary France scandalized the world. Two hundred years later, in 1985, Christopher Hampton's stage adaptation became an award-winning sensation in London's West End and on Broadway, followed by the Academy Award-winning filmDangerous Liaisons starring Glenn Close, John Malkovich and Michelle Pfeiffer. Josie Rourke's acclaimed production transfers to Broadway after a sold-out engagement at London's Donmar Warehouse which ended earlier this year and starred Janet McTeer. The production received two Olivier Award nominations for Best Revival and Best Actress for Ms. McTeer.

Former lovers, La Marquise de Merteuil and Le Vicomte de Valmont compete in games of seduction and revenge. These merciless aristocrats toy with the hearts and reputations of innocents. Merteuil incites Valmont to corrupt the convent-educated Cecile de Volanges before her wedding night but Valmont has other designs. His target is the peerlessly virtuous and happily married Madame de Tourvel.

The creative team includes Tom Scutt (Set & Costume Designs), Mark Henderson (Lighting Design),Carolyn Downing (Sound Design), Michael Bruce (Composer), Campbell Young (Hair, Wigs & Makeup), and Arthur Pita (Movement Director). Casting is by Caparelliotis Casting (US) and Alastair Coomer CDG (UK). The Production Stage Manager is Jane Grey. General Management by 101Productions, Ltd.
