Directed by Tony Award winner Doug Hughes, the new Broadway production at the American Airlines Theatre will now play through Dec. 14.

A Man for All Seasons officially opened to critical praise for Langella and the acting company on Oct. 7.

The cast includes Hannah Cabell (Margaret More), Michael Esper (William Roper), Michel Gill (Duke of Norfolk), Zach Grenier (Thomas Cromwell), Dakin Matthews (Cardinal Wolsey), George Morfogen (Thomas Cranmer, Archbishop), Patrick Page (King Henry VIII), Maryann Plunkett (Alice More), Jeremy Strong (Richard Rich), Charles Borland (Jailor), Peter Bradbury (Steward), Patricia Hodges (Woman), Triney Sandoval (Thomas Chapuys) and Emily Dorsch. The design team includes Santo Loquasto (sets), Catherine Zuber (costumes), David Lander (lights), David Van Tieghem (original music & sound) and Tom Watson (hair & wigs).

A Man for All Seasons, according to Roundabout, "is a timeless exploration of politics, religion and power. Robert Bolt's classic drama is based on the fascinating true story of English Chancellor Sir Thomas More and his moral objection to King Henry VIII’s plan to leave the Catholic Church."

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 Cyrano de Bergerac in which he starred, directed and adapted the play. Other Roundabout productions include The Father (1996) and The Tempest (1989). A Man for All Seasons 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 play's first Broadway revival.
