News   First Look! See Keira Knightley As She Readies For Her Broadway Debut in Thérèse Raquin
 
Academy Award, Golden Globe and Olivier nominee Keira Knightley will make her Broadway debut in Helen Edmundson's new adaptation of Thérèse Raquin, based upon the novel by Émile Zola, Roundabout Theatre Company announced Oct. 23.

Directed by Evan Cabnet, the production will begin previews Oct. 1 prior to an official opening Oct. 29 at Studio 54.

As previously reported, the cast will include Tony Award winner Gabriel Ebert (Camille), Matt Ryan (Laurent) and two-time Tony Award winner Judith Light (Madame Raquin).

These artists will be joined by the newly announced David Patrick Kelly, Jeff Still, Mary Wiseman, Glynis Bell, Alex Mickiewicz, Sara Topham and Ray Virta.

This new adaptation was commissioned by Roundabout Theatre Company.

"A quiet young woman with a restless spirit, Thérèse (Knightley) submits to a loveless life at the side of her weak and selfish husband played by Tony Award winner Gabriel Ebert (Matilda), and her controlling mother-in-law, played by two-time Tony Award winner Judith Light (The Assembled Parties)…until she meets his childhood friend Laurent played by Matt Ryan ('Constantine')," according to press notes. "When their overwhelming passion spins violently out of control, they realize that love can be a dangerous game, and sometimes there is no winner."

The design team includes Beowulf Boritt (sets), Jane Greenwood (costumes), Keith Parham (lighting), and Josh Schmidt (sound).

Tickets are available online at RoundaboutTheatre.org, by calling (212) 719-1300 or at the Studio 54 box office (254 West 54th Street). Tickets prices range from $47-$137.
