Le New York Times annonce que LE PÈRE sera créé à Broadway en mars prochain !
Three-time Tony Award winner Frank Langella will be back on Broadway next spring in the title role of “The Father,” a play by Florian Zeller that has earned acclaim in Europe.
Manhattan Theater Club on Tuesday added the production, which will be directed by Doug Hughes, to its season. “The Father” will begin previews March 22 and open April 12 at the Samuel J. Friedman Theater.
Further casting will be announced later. “The Father” won France’s Molière award for a new work of theater. A British production with another cast earned strong reviews — a critic for The Telegraph described it last year as “one of the most acute, absorbing and distressing portraits of dementia I’ve ever seen” — and it is about to reopen in the West End.
Mr. Langella last appeared on Broadway in Terence Rattigan’s “Man and Boy” at the Roundabout Theater Company in 2011.
