TONY AWARD WINNING PLAY RETURNS!

The Roundabout Theatre Company presents the first Broadway revival of A Man for All Seasons in nearly five decades. This historical drama written by Robert Bolt will begin previews at the American Airlines Theatre on September 14, 2008 with an official opening date of October 7, 2008. It is a gripping story of one mans fight for what he believes in and the price he must pay for upholding those beliefs. The production stars three time Tony Award winner Frank Langella.

A Man for All Seasons is based on the true story of Sir Thomas More the 16th century Chancellor of England who struggles with his friendship with King Henry the VII and that of his conscience. More has serious moral objections to the King’s decision to leave the Catholic Church so that he can divorce his aging wife who cannot produce an heir and marry another woman. He must decide whether to support the King or denounce him; a decision that could ultimately lead him to the executioners block. The story explores politics, religion and power while weaving an intriguing tale of morality and standing up for what one believes to be true.

The critically acclaimed play debuted on Broadway in 1961 making quite a hit among audiences and critics alike and won the Tony Award for Best Play. It ran for 620 shows. In 1966 the play was made into a film that earned six Academy Awards. The current production stars the accomplished stage actor Frank Langella who most recently won the Tony Award for Best Actor for his role as President Nixon in last years acclaimed play Frost/Nixon. Some of his other stage credits include his Tony Award winning roles in Fortune’s Fool and Seascape as well as Dracula, Amadeus, The Tempest and Match. Langella brings much experience to the role of Sir Thomas More. The production also stars Tony Award winner Maryanne Plunkett and Patrick Page. Plunkett won the Tony for her work in Me and My Girl and Page is best known for his long running role as Lumiere in Beauty and the Beast both on Broadway and in the national tour as well as playing the title character in the 2006 production of How the Grinch Stole Christmas.

Between the stimulating material throughout the show and accomplished cast this production can’t miss. It is a timeless exploration of standing up for ones principles no matter the cost. Both the original play and the film were highly successful and the story is certainly worth being retold. The revival has been a long time coming. If this is a show that you are considering get your tickets soon as this is a limited engagement and is set to close on December 14, 2008.
