Brief Encounter: Tickets now on sale
Tickets are now on sale to the general public for the Roundabout Theatre Company's revival of Noël Coward's Brief Encounter, opening at Studio 54 on 28 Sep 2010, following previews from 10 Sep, playing a limited engagement through to 5 Dec 2010.
Adapted and directed by Emma Rice, the cast will feature Joseph Alessi (Albert/Fred), Dorothy Atkinson (Beryl), Damon Daunno (Bill/Bobbie), Gabriel Ebert (Stanley), Edward Jay (Musician), Annette McLaughlin (Myrtle), Adam Pleeth (Musician), Tristan Sturrock (Alec) and Hannah Yelland (Laura). Switching seamlessly between theatre and film using a combination of Coward's original stage play 'Still Life' and the screenplay of Brief Encounter Emma Rice, Kneehigh's Artistic Director, takes you back to a bygone age of romance and the silver screen from the moment the commissionaire opens the doors. The lives and loves of three couples are played out in the famous station tearoom using the words and songs of Noël Coward.
Kneehigh Theatre's Brief Encounter played a sold out run at St. Ann's Warehouse in Brooklyn, NY and has also played critically acclaimed engagements at ACT and the Guthrie Theater.
Brief Encounter played at London's Cinema Haymarket in 2008, and earned Emma Rice a nomination for the 2009 Olivier Award for Best Director.
The design team includes Neil Murray (Sets & Costumes), Malcolm Rippeth (Lights), Simon Baker (Sound) and Gemma Carrington & Jon Driscoll (Projection).
The show is being produced on Broadway by the Roundabout Theatre Company in association with David Pugh & Dafydd Rogers and Cineworld.
