The Roundabout Theatre Company, in association with Chocolate Factory Productions and Sonia Friedman Productions, presents the first Broadway revival of Tom Stoppard's Tony Award-winning play Travesties, starring BAFTA winner and Olivier Award nominee Tom Hollander and directed by Tony nominee Patrick Marber. Previews will begin at Broadway's American Airlines Theatre on March 29, 2018, before an official opening on April 24, and a limited engagement through to June 17, 2018.

The production debuted at London's Menier Chocolate Factory, with Mr. Marber at the helm and Mr. Hollander starring as Henry Carr, and played a limited engagement from September through to November 2016. It then transferred to the West End's Apollo Theatre for a further limited run from February to April 2017. Read our 4-star review on our London Theatre Guide sister site.

Synopsis: "In 1917 Zurich, an artist Tristan Tzara, a writer James Joyce, and a revolutionary Lenin, collide in a kaleidoscopic thrill-ride."

Additional casting and creative team information will be announced at a later date.

Tom Stoppard's Travesties premiered at London's Aldwych Theatre in June 1974. It transferred to New York, opening at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre in October 1975, eventually picking up the Tony Award for "Best Play" and "Best Actor in Play" (for John Wood) in 1976.

Tom Hollander earned an Olivier Award nomination this year for his performance as Henry Carr in 'Travesties' in London. He made his Broadway debut in 'The Judas Kiss' opposite Liam Neeson at the Broadhurst Theatre in 1998. Other London theatre credits include 'A Flea in Her Ear,' 'Landscape with Weapon,' 'The Hotel in Amsterdam,' 'King Lear,' 'Tartuffe,' 'The Government Inspector,' 'Mojo,' 'The Way of the World,' and 'The Threepenny Opera.' He won a BAFTA TV Award this year for his role in "The Night Manager" and has received four further BAFTA nominations for "Rev" (3 for acting, 1 for writing), along with first BAFTA nomination for "Gracie!" Other notable screen credits include "Taboo," "Doctor Thorne," "Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation," "About Time," "Hanna," "Desperate Romantics," "Valkyrie," "Elizabeth: The Golden Age," "Pride & Prejudice," "Gosford Park," and the "Pirates of the Caribbean" franchise.
