Roundabout's Old Acquaintance Opens June 28

Opening night is Thursday, June 28th for Roundabout Theatre Company's new Broadway production of John van Druten's comedy Old Acquaintance, starring Margaret Colin as "Katharine Markham" and Tony Award-winner Harriet Harris as "Mildred Watson Drake", directed by Michael Wilson at the American Airlines Theatre on Broadway (227 West 42nd St). 

"Old Acquaintance is a delightful drawing-room comedy about two childhood friends who have grown into very different adults. Though they are both successful authors, independent Katharine 'Kit' Markham (Colin) carries on an affair with a younger man while divorcee Mildred 'Milly' Drake (Harris) refuses to loosen the apron-strings on her teenage daughter, Deirdre (Diane Davis). But when Deirdre's struggles to become more like her idol Kit have far-reaching consequences, the two women who thought they were growing apart may have much more in common than they'd like to admit," state press notes.

Tickets are available by calling Roundabout Ticket Services at (212)719-1300, online at or at the American Airlines box office (227 West 42nd St.). Old Acquaintance will play Tuesday through Saturday evenings at 8:00PM with a Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday matinee at 2:00PM.  Ticket prices range from $51.25 - $86.25.
