VIDEO: THERESE RAQUIN's Judith Light Talks Return to Broadway on 'Today'

In an interview on this morning's TODAY, two-time Tony Award winning actress Judith Light discussed her hit Amazon series "Transparent" as well as her return to Broadway in the new stage adaptation of THÉRÈSE RAQUIN. Watch the appearance below:

The Broadway adaptation of THÉRÈSE RAQUIN, starring Academy and Golden Globe nominee Keira Knightley (Thérèse) in her Broadway debut, began preview performances on October 1, 2015, and officially opened October 29, 2015 on Broadway at Studio 54.

The new adaptation is written by Helen Edmundson, based upon the novel by Émile Zola, directed by Evan Cabnet.

Knightley joins Tony award winner Gabriel Ebert (Camille), Matt Ryan (Laurent) and two-time Tony award winner Judith Light (Madame Raquin), alongside David Patrick Kelly, Jeff Still, Mary Wiseman, Glynis Bell, Alex Mickiewicz, Sara Topham, and Ray Virta in the cast.

The design team includes Beowulf Boritt (sets), Jane Greenwood (costumes), Keith Parham (lighting), and Josh Schmidt (sound).

A quiet young woman with a RESTLESS spirit, Thérèse (Knightley) submits to a loveless life at the side of her weak and selfish husband played by Tony Award winner Gabriel Ebert (Matilda), and her controlling mother-in-law, played by two-time Tony Award winner Judith Light (The Assembled Parties)...until she meets his childhood friend Laurent played by Matt Ryan ("Constantine"). When their overwhelming passion spins violently out of control, they realize that love can be a dangerous game, and sometimes there is no winner.

Based on the novel by Émile Zola, Thérèse Raquin by Helen Edmundson is a tale of love, lust, BETRAYAL and guilt that will leave you breathless.
