Previews for the new Roundabout Theatre Company production began Sept. 9 at the American Airlines Theatre. Maria Aitken (The 39 Steps) directs.
Set during the Depression, the play is billed this way by Roundabout: Langella plays ruthless financier Gregor Antonescu, whose business "is dangerously close to crumbling. 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's a look at the opening night arrivals, curtain call and party:
