Roundabout Theatre Company is reviving the Depression-set 1963 drama, directed by Maria Aitken (The 39 Steps), in which Langella plays financier Gregor Antonescu, whose business "is dangerously close to crumbling," according to Roundabout notes. "In order to escape the wolves at his door, Gregor tracks down his estranged son Basil [played by Adam Driver, late of Roundabout's Mrs. Warren's Profession] in the hopes of using his Greenwich Village apartment as a base to make a company-saving deal. Can this reunion help them reconcile? Or will this corrupt father use his only son as a pawn in one last power play? Man and Boy is a gripping story about family, success and what we're willing to sacrifice for both."
Here is a first look at the show:
