Tony Goldwyn and more complete the cast of Bryan Cranston-led Network
The Broadway premiere of Network begins performances at the Belasco Theatre on November 10, 2018.
Complete casting is now set for the upcoming Broadway transfer of Network, adapted by Tony and Olivier Award winner Lee Hall and based on the Academy Award-winning film by Paddy Chayefsky.
Joining Tony, Olivier, Emmy and Golden Globe Award winner Bryan Cranston (reprising his Olivier Award-winning performance as Howard Beale) and his previously announced co-star and Emmy Award winner Tatiana Maslany (as Diana Christensen) will be Tony Goldwyn (as Max Schumacher).
Mr. Goldwyn made his Broadway debut in the 1995 revival of Holiday and was last seen on the Great White Way in the 2010 revival of Promises, Promises. He is perhaps best known for his TV role as Fitzgerald Grant on ABC's "Scandal" and has appeared in such films as "Insurgent," "Divergent," "The Pelican Brief," "Kiss The Girls," "Nixon," "The Substance of Fire," "The Last Samurai," Disney’s "Tarzan," and, of course, as the villainous Carl Bruner in "Ghost".
In addition, the cast will also include Joshua Boone (as Frank Hackett), Alyssa Bresnahan (as Louise Schumacher), Ron Canada (as Edward Ruddy), Julian Elijah Martinez (as Harry Hunter), Tony Award winner Frank Wood (as Nelson Chaney), Nick Wyman (as Arthur Jensen), Barzin Akhavan (as Jack Snowden/Warm-Up Guy), Jason Babinsky (as Floor Manager), Camila Canó Flaviá (as Secretary), Eric Chayefsky (as ELA Member), Gina Daniels (as Technician), Nicholas Guest (as Technician), Joe Paulik (as Technician), Susannah Perkins (as Schlesinger), Victoria Sendra (as Camera Person 2), Henry Stram (as Continuity Announcer), Bill Timoney (as Director), Joseph Varca (as Camera Person 1), Nicole Villamil (as Sheila), and Jeena Yi (as Technician).
The National Theatre production of Network begins previews at Broadway's Belasco Theatre on November 10, 2018, ahead of an official opening on December 6 and a limited engagement through to March 17, 2019.
Synopsis: "Howard Beale, news anchor-man, isn’t pulling in the viewers. In his final broadcast he unravels live on screen. But when ratings soar, the network seizes on their newfound populist prophet, and Howard becomes the biggest thing on TV. Network depicts a media landscape where opinion trumps fact. Hilarious and hair-raising by turns, the iconic film by Paddy Chayefsky won four Academy Awards in 1976."
The production is once again directed by Tony and Olivier Award winner Ivo van Hove and features scenic and lighting design by his longtime collaborator Jan Versweyveld. The creative team also features costume design by An D'Huys, video design by Tal Yarden, and original music & sound design by Olivier Award nominee Eric Sleichim.
Network is produced on Broadway by David Binder, the National Theatre, Patrick Myles, David Luff, Ros Povey and Lee Menzies.
Network Tickets are available now for performances from November 10, 2018 through to March 17, 2019.
