STAGE TUBE: THE PHILANTHROPIST Star Matthew Broderick on NBC's Today Show

Matthew Broderick, star of Roundabout Theatre Company's The Philanthropist, guested on NBC's "Today Show" this morning, Tuesday April 14th on channel 4. BWW TV brings you the segment right here on STAGE TUBE!

Roundabout Theatre Company (Todd Haimes, Artistic Director) presents a new Broadway production of The Philanthropist starring Matthew Broderick, Jonathan Cake, Anna Madeley and Steven Weber. The Philanthropist, by Christopher Hampton, is directed by David Grindley at the American Airlines Theatre (227 West 42nd Street).

The cast also includes Tate Ellington, Jennifer Mudge and Samantha Soule.

The Philanthropist will open officially on Sunday, April 26th, 2009. This is a limited engagement through June 28th, 2009.

The design team includes Tim Shortall (Sets), Tobin Ost (Costumes), Rick Fisher (Lights) and Gregory Clarke (Sound).

Written as a response to Molière's The Misanthrope, Hampton's biting bourgeois comedy examines the empty, insular lives of college intellectuals. At the center of the story is Philip (Broderick), a professor who seems almost absurdly removed from the political turmoil surrounding him, including the assassination of the Prime Minister and his cabinet.

Tickets are available by calling Roundabout Ticket Services at (212)719-1300, online at or at the American Airlines Box Office (227 West 42nd Street).

The Philanthropist plays Tuesday through Saturday evenings at 8:00 p.m. with Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday matinees at 2:00 p.m.
