Betrayal - 2013 - Broadway Tickets, News, Info & More

$57 - $152

Daniel Craig, Rachel Weisz, and Rafe Spall star in Harold Pinter's Betrayal, directed by ten-time Tony Award-winner Mike Nichols. Betrayal is a strictly limited engagement, running 14 weeks only, through January 5, 2014 at the Barrymore Theatre (243 West 47th Street).

Betrayal originally premiered at London's National Theatre in 1978 and was immediately hailed as one of Pinter's masterworks, winning the 1979 Olivier Award for Best New Play. Emma (Rachel Weisz) is married to Robert (Daniel Craig), a publisher, but she has long had an affair with Jerry (Rafe Spall), a literary agent and Robert's best friend; as, in a brilliant device, time is regained, so the full complexity of their relationships comes to light.

Running Time:

1 hour and 30 minutes, with no intermission

Featured Reviews For Betrayal


Theater Review: With Weisz and Craig, Betrayal Goes Back on Broadway - Vulture
A very tasteful, tranquil, and often beautiful performance of Betrayal begins. Its style is best exemplified by Ian MacNeil's scenery - a series of translucent boxes that fit within one another like Matryoshka dolls and float into place as scene succeeds scene. Or do scenesprecede scenes? Both, really. Though the standard description of Pinter's "reverse chronology" is inaccurate (people don't speak backward, and several scenes in a row actually move forward) the overall trajectory is indeed toward the past...A bigger problem is the surprising lack of detail in the acting. Craig delivers a solid performance; he's smart and emphatic and deeply engaged, but not psychologically nuanced. (I'd like to see him in The Homecoming.) Weisz gives Emma a petulant spin that makes her seem a bit unlikely as the fulcrum of the ménage. (Well, she does look great.) The two feel deployed, not exposed. Spall, though, is sensational. He renders Jerry's various selves (randy, sexy, selfish, sulky, self-justifying) not as a series of poses but as a solid-state condition: the blur of traits by which great acting impersonates personality.

Cheaters prosper in ‘Betrayal’ - NY Post
At the end, which is the beginning, Jerry is carefree and daring. We already know a decade of lies and cheating awaits. This is the kind of insight that makes “Betrayal” a play worth revisiting — its very structure encourages multiple viewings. Just not at $500 a pop.

According to the New York Post, Broadway's Betrayal ran into technical issues over the holiday weekend when automated set changes failed to work properly on Saturday night. An audience member told Page Six: "A black screen came down. After 15 minutes, Craig and the rest of the cast came out, and said they were having problems with the stage, but they were going to 'give it a shot,' and continue with the performance. They started to applause, but between each scene, the curtain came down, and the set was manually changed, which took a lot of time. By 9:30 p.m., they had only got through a few more scenes, and - while the actors made a valiant attempt to continue - some in the audience became restless and left."

The new production of Pinter's power play follows the new millennium's trend of easily digestible, surface skimming, star vehicle commercial Broadway revivals of Twentieth Century dramas.
