Roundabout's TRAVESTIES Begins Previews Tonight
Roundabout Theatre Company (Todd Haimes, Artistic Director/CEO) - in association with Chocolate Factory Productions (David Babani, Artistic Director) and Sonia Friedman Productions - is pleased to present the first Broadway revival of Tom Stoppard's Tony Award-winning play Travesties.
Travesties stars Tom Hollander as Henry Carr with Peter McDonald reprising his role as James Joyce from the Menier Chocolate Factory production, Seth Numrich as Tristan Tzara, Dan Butler as Lenin, Scarlett Strallen as Gwendolen, Sara Topham as Cecily, Opal Alladin as Nadya and Patrick Kerr as Bennett.
Travesties begins preview performances tonight, March 29, 2018 and opens officially on Tuesday, April 24, 2018. This is a limited engagement through Sunday, June 17, 2018 at the American Airlines Theatre on Broadway (227 West 42nd Street).
Travesties returns to Broadway in a "near-miraculous production" of "mind-bending splendor" (New York Times). In 1917 Zurich, an artist - Tristan Tzara, a writer - James Joyce, and a revolutionary - Lenin, collide in a kaleidoscopic thrill-ride that's "wickedly playful, intensely entertaining, infectiously theatrical" (Time Out London).
Roundabout reunites with playwright Tom Stoppard (Indian Ink, The Real Thing) and director Patrick Marber (Howard Katz, After Miss Julie) for a dazzling revival from London's Menier Chocolate Factory (Sunday in the Park with George).
Roundabout is additionally pleased to welcome returning actors Dan Butler (On the Twentieth Century), Sara Topham (The Importance of Being Earnest), Opal Alladin (Hedda Gabler) and Patrick Kerr (The Ritz).
