The Real Thing returns to Broadway in a stirring and sensual new production. This Tony Award-winning play by Tom Stoppard (The Coast of Utopia, Arcadia) first seduced audiences in London and New York nearly 30 years ago. Henry (McGregor) is a playwright not so happily married to Charlotte (Nixon), the lead actress in his play about a marriage on the verge of collapse. When Henry's affair with their friend Annie (Gyllenhaal) threatens to destroy his own marriage, he discovers that life has started imitating art. After Annie leaves her husband (Hamilton) so she and Henry can begin a new life together, he can't help but wonder whether their love is fiction or The Real Thing. Delectably witty and deeply affecting, The Real Thing takes a daring glimpse at relationships, fidelity, and the passions that often blur our perception of love.
