'Les Liaison Dangereuses' Completes Cast; with Gummer, Nielsen, Walker
Roundabout Theatre Company is pleased to announce the full company joining previously announced stars 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 cast includes Siân Phillips as "Madame De Rosemonde," Jessica Collins "Madame De Tourvel", Mamie Gummer as "Cecile Volanges", Kristine Nielsen as "Madame De Volanges", Benjamin Walker as "Danceny," Rosie Benton as "Emile," Derek Cecil as "Azolan," Kevin Duda "Servant" and Jane Pfitsch "Servant."
The limited engagement will begin previews on Friday, April 11, 2008 and officially open on Thursday, May 1, 2008.
The design team includes Scott Pask (sets), Katrina Lindsay (costumes), Donald Holder (lights), Paul Arditti (sound), Paul Huntley (hair & wigs), Deborah Hecht (dialect) and Rick Sordelet (fight direction).
"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," describe press notes.
The Roundabout Theatre Company production of Les Liaisons Dangereuses marks the play's return to Broadway for the first time since its 1987 Tony Award-nominated premiere and subsequent 1987 Olivier Award-winning West End production. Les Liaisons Dangereuses went on to inspire the 1988 Academy Award-nominated film classic, Dangerous Liaisons.
