A Man For All Seasons, a new Broadway production starring Frank Langella
Roundabout Theatre Company has announced that 3-Time Tony Award Winner Frank Langella ('Frost/Nixon,' 'Fortune's Fool' and 'Seascape') will star as 'Sir Thomas More' in a new Broadway production of Robert Boltï¿½s A Man For All Seasons, directed by Tony Award Winner Doug Hughes ('Doubt').
The design team will include Santo Loquasto (sets), Catherine Zuber (costumes) and David Lander (lights). Additional cast members and design team will be announced shortly.
A Man For All Seasons will begin previews on 12 Sep 2008 and open 7 Oct 2008 at the American Airlines Theatre on Broadway for a limited engagement.
A Man For All Seasons is a timeless exploration of politics, religion and power. Robert Boltï¿½s classic drama is based on the fascinating true story of English Chancellor Sir Thomas More and his moral objection to King Henry VIIIï¿½s plan to leave the Catholic Church.
The Drama premiered on Broadway in 1961 and won the Tony Award for Best Play. In 1966, the play was made into a feature film and went on to win six Oscars. This production marks the playï¿½s first Broadway revival!
Frank Langella returns to Broadway following his Tony winning role in 'Frost/Nixon' in 2007. Langella returns to Roundabout Theatre Company following the 1997 Off-Broadway production of C'yrano de Bergerac' in which he starred, directed and adapted the book. Other Roundabout productions include 'The Father' (1996) and 'The Tempest' (1989).
Doug Hughes is a Resident Director at Roundabout Theatre Company where he recently directed Patrick Marberï¿½s 'Howard Katz,' Eugene Oï¿½Neillï¿½s 'A Touch of the Poet,' Richard Greenbergï¿½s comedy 'A Naked Girl on the Appian Way,' Jon Robin Baitzï¿½s 'The Paris Letter' and Stephen Belberï¿½s 'McReele.' Hughes earned the 2005 Tony Award for Best Direction of John Patrick Shanleyï¿½s 'Doubt. '
