The revival show of George Bernard Shaw’s story, which originally opened in New York way back in 1920, has come to Broadway in recognition of Shaw’s 150th birthday, thanks to the Roundabout Theatre Company. Heartbreak House is a satire on British Aristocracy, when on its death throes. The story is set in a country house, and centers around a full white bearded Captain Shotover, the squire who is a nutcase – essayed by Philip Bosco.

Then there are Hesione and Ariadne, the ‘bohemian’ and ‘aristocratic’ daughters, respectively, of the Captain – played by Swoosie Kurtz and Laila Robins. Then, there is Hector, the twit of a husband of Hesione. Into this mix walks an unexpected visitor, who first hankers after Hector, creating havoc, and then getting after the Captain.

This ruefully funny play by Shaw is set over a weekend in the English countryside, which becomes a tangle of unlikely attachments and complications. Unlikely romantic encounters occur, but are never mutual. The relationships that succeed have nothing whatsoever to do with love.

This Robin Lefevre directed play previewed on September 16, 2006, and opened on October 11, 2006, for a very short run at the Roundabout Theatre Company’s American Airlines Theater.

The Theater

American Airlines Theater, considered as one of the last greatest theater to be built on Broadway, opened in 1918 as the Selwyn Theater. Built by Edgar and Arch Selwyn, and designed by architect George Keister, the Selwyn Theater built in an early Italian Renaissance style, was painted blue and antique gold. It was decorated with large murals, and wreath moldings, in addition to dentils, scrolled modillions and stone balusters.

Over the decades, hard times took its toll on the theater, leaving it derelict, and in disrepair. After various ups and downs, the Roundabout Theater Company got the use of the Selwyn Theater in September 1997. After much restoration and renovations under guidance of the City’s Historical Preservation Committee, the Selwyn Theater re-opened on July 27, 2000 as the American Airlines Theater.

The Tickets

Heartbreak House tickets can be procured from the theater’s box office. You can choose to purchase Heartbreak House tickets from other sources, as well, if you wish to avoid the line at the theater. Ensure that you buy your Heartbreak House tickets from legitimate sources. There are a number of licensed ticket brokers from whom you can source your Heartbreak House tickets.

Avoid buying your Heartbreak House tickets from sources such as re-sale forums, and sites such as eBay, where tickets and other things are auctioned. Buying your Heartbreak House tickets from such sources could be risky, as you are not assured of the tickets being genuine. Similarly, avoid buying theater tickets from scalpers who are found around the venues looking to offload their tickets. Here, too, you are not sure of the tickets not being fake.
