Travesties - 2018 - Broadway History , Info & More

Todd Haimes Theatre (Broadway)
229 W. 42nd St. New York, NY

Now nominated for FOUR TONY AWARDS including Best Revival of a Play, Best Actor in a Play (Tom Hollander), Best Director of a Play (Patrick Marber) and Best Sound Design of a Play (Adam Cork).

Roundabout's dazzling new production of Travesties, Tom Stoppard's Tony Award-winning Best Play, has arrived - and The New York Times says it's "ridiculously entertaining." An artist, a writer and a revolutionary collide in this "giddy, head-spinning triumph" (Entertainment Weekly), a kaleidoscopic thrill-ride through the worlds of art and revolution in 1917 Switzerland...and in the maze of one man's memory.

This "knock-the-wind-out-of-you magnificent revival" (New York Magazine) is "an uproarious work of art, impeccably directed by Patrick Marber" (Newsday). 2017 Olivier nominee Tom Hollander leads the cast, and he is "marvelous" (Time Out New York).

Travesties. New York Stage Review says it's "possibly the only perfect production now occupying a Broadway theater. Get there fast."

'Travesties': Theater Review
8 / 10

You don't have to enroll for a graduate degree to enjoy Tom Stoppard's simultaneously wacky and intellectual 1974 comedy, now being given its first-ever Broadway revival by the Roundabout Theater Company. That's largely due to the accessible nature of director Patrick Marber's rollickingly staged production, which garnered raves for its London stints at the Menier Chocolate Factory and the West End. The handy crib sheet provided in the program doesn't hurt either.

Revival of Tom Stoppard's Travesties is a giddy, head-spinning triumph: EW review
9 / 10

It may be easier to inventory what the Broadway revival of Tom Stoppard's 1974 tour de force isn't about than what it is: A gushing waterfall of wordplay, a fine-tuned literary torrent that only begins by covering love, sex, war, memory, and Marxism. Also James Joyce, Dada, the fine art of men's tailoring, and The Importance of Being Earnest.

by Harry Haun - May 31, 2018


The most honorable of the honorable mentions in 2018's Tony race will likely turn out to be Travesties, Tom Stoppard's 1974 tragifarce which took top Tony honors for Best Play and Best Actor (John Wood) in 1976 and is now putting up a game bid for Best Revival, Best Actor (Tom Hollander) and Best Director (Patrick Marber).

BWW Review: Tom Stoppard's TRAVESTIES or A Novelist, A Communist and A Dadaist Walk Into A Library
by Michael Dale - April 25, 2018


Czech-born British dramatist Tom Stoppard, whose densely intellectual plays may be the most potent argument known for America's need to step up its public education funding, was first noticed on these Atlantic shores in the 1960s for shining a spotlight on two minor Shakespearean characters in ROSENCRANTZ AND GUILDENSTERN ARE DEAD.
