Roundabout's Heartbreak House Begins Previews 9/15

Heartbreak House, the Roundabout Theatre Company's revival of the classic George Bernard Shaw comedy, will begin previews on Friday, September 15th at the American Airlines Theatre (227 W. 42nd St.).   The show will open officially on Wednesday, October 11th, 2006.  It will play a limited engagement through Sunday, December 10th.

The show will star Philip Bosco as "Captain Shotover", Swoosie Kurtz as "Hesione Hushabye", Byron Jennings as "Hector", Lily Rabe as "Ellie Dunn" and Laila Robins as "Lady Utterword. The cast will also include Bill Camp ("Mangan"), John Christopher Jones ("Mazzini Dunn"), Gareth Saxe ("Randall") and Jenny Sterlin ("Nurse Guinness").  Robin Lefevre will direct.

"Heartbreak House follows a weekend in the English countryside that becomes a tangle of unlikely attachments and unwanted complications. Romance springs eternal but never mutual, and the most successful relationships have the least to do with love," state press notes on the show.

Heartbreak House will play Tuesday through Saturday evenings at 8:00PM with a Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday matinee at 2:00PM. It will also play the following early-to-bed series: early curtains at 7:00 PM from October 17th – October 27th.  Tickets, which range from $51.25-$86.25, are available by calling Roundabout Ticket Services at (212)719-1300, visiting online at or going to the American Airlines box office (227 West 42nd St.).
