Exit The King in NYC is the talk of the town. This ridiculous comedy play written by Eugene Ionesco (translated by Neil Armfield and Geoffrey Rush) is being staged on Broadway for only fourteen weeks. So if you still have not made your bookings, do so now.

Exit The King – Synopsis And Cast

Exit The King in NYC stars Academy Award winners Geoffrey Rush and Susan Sarandon. While it is debut performance for Geoffrey Rush, Susan Sarandon returns to Broadway after a long gap of over twenty years with this play. Other stars of the stage play include Tony Award winner, Andrea Martin and Emmy Award nominee, Lauren Ambrose.

The director of the play is Neil Armfield. The producers are Stuart Thompson, Robert Fox and Ambassador Theater Group. The press agents for the play are Boneau and Bryan-Brown.

The play first premiered in the year 1962 and has opened again. The story is about disheveled Geoffrey Rush who plays a 400-year old monarch king. He lives in the illusion that no one can take away his throne from him. He feels that he can evade life and live on forever. The play is staged in a bizarre fortress view where the pajama clad hero plays absurd antics. He is married to the lovely Lauren Ambrose.

What follows is for you to see. So come down and watch this master performance by some of the most talked about actors of Broadway. The play is not going to last long. In fact it is being staged for a period of 14 weeks only. The tickets are being sold fast and soon might be completely sold out. The rave reviews of the mink-trailing emperor and the story of his own madness is something that cannot be missed. But for that you would need to have a previous booking of Exit The King in NYC.
