Kathleen McNenny Replaces Liz Wisan in THE FATHER on Broadway

BroadwayWorld has just learned that Kathleen McNenny has replaced the previously announced Liz Wisan in the role of 'Woman' in Manhattan Theatre Club's upcoming production of THE FATHER. The new play by Molière Award winner Florian Zeller, in a translation by two-time Tony Award winner Christopher Hampton (Sunset Boulevard, Les Liaisons Dangereuses, God of Carnage), will begin previews Tuesday, March 22, 2016. Opening night for the production will now be Thursday, April 14, 2016 on Broadway at MTC's Samuel J. FriedmanTheatre (261 West 47th Street).

Three-time Tony Award winner Frank Langella returns to the stage in The Father, an all new Broadway production of the play which captivated Paris and London. Winner of the Molière Award, France's most prestigious honor for a new work of theater, and The Guardian's pick for Best Play of the Year.

Also starring are Tony Award nominee Kathryn Erbe ("Law & Order: Criminal Intent," The Speed of Darkness), Brian Avers (Rock 'n' Roll, The Lieutenant of Inishmore), Charles Borland (A Man for All Seasons), and Drama Desk Award nominee Hannah Cabell (Pumpgirl at MTC, Grounded).

Now 80 years old, André (Frank Langella) was once a tap dancer. He lives with his daughter Anne (Kathryn Erbe) and her husband Antoine. Or was he an engineer whose daughter Anne lives in London with her new lover, Pierre? The thing is, he is still wearing his pajamas, and he can't find his watch. He is starting to wonder if he's losing control.
