Extension of '39 Steps' Pushes Back 'Les Liaisons'

 Due to the extension of The 39 Steps through March 29th at the American Airlines Theatre, the first preview of Les Liaisons Dangereuses will begin on Saturday, April 12th at 8PM (eve).

Roundabout Theatre Company (Todd Haimes, Artistic Director) presents Laura Linney as "La Marquise de Merteuil" and Ben Daniels as "Le Vicomte de Valmont" in a new Broadway production of Les Liaisons Dangereuses, by Christopher Hampton, directed by Rufus Norris at the American Airlines Theatre (227 West 42nd Street).  The limited engagement will officially open on Thursday, May 1st, 2008.

The definitive battle of the sexes springs to life in this Tony Award®-nominated classic by Christopher Hampton. For long-time friends and occasional lovers Vicomte de Valmont (Daniels) and Marquise de Merteuil (Linney), love is simply a game of chess. But in a few false moves, they're about to find themselves locked in the ultimate checkmate. Filled with seduction, betrayal, and plenty of illicit passion, this dark comedy paints the pre-Revolutionary French aristocracy in all its cynicism and decadence.

Tickets are available by calling Roundabout Ticket Services at (212)719-1300, online at www.roundabouttheatre.org or at the American Airlines Box Office (227 West 42nd Street).   Ticket prices range from $56.25 to $101.25.
