News   Emond and Lansbury Join Life x 3 at Circle in the Square March 27; Tix Now of Sale As reported earlier by PBOL, the Broadway production of Yasmina Reza's Life x 3 will open at Circle in the Square on March 27. The show will replace Metamorphoses which departs Feb. 16. Helen Hunt and John Turturro will star.

Also in the cast are Linda Emond and David Lansbury. Emond last acted in Homebody/Kabul and Lansbury is currently in Comedians.

Tickets are now on sale at Telecharge, (212) 239-6200.

French playwright Reza had a big hit with her first Broadway play, Art, which won a Tony Award for Best Play. Her second New York premiere, The Unexpected Man played Off-Broadway in 2000.

Matthew Warchus, who piloted Art, will stage Life. Since Art, Warchus has scored a hit with True West and a miss with the Broadway revival of Follies. Ron Kastner is producing.

In Life, a couple are putting their son to bed when their dinner guests arrive — 24 hours early! The unexpected evening then splits into three possible outcomes — hence the play's title. Reza has never lacked for star talent in her works. Art debuted in New York with Victor Garber, Alan Alda and Alfred Molina and proceeded to host a series of boldface casts, as did the original London production. Unexpected Man, meanwhile, starred Eileen Atkins and Alan Bates.
