News   PHOTO CALL: Man and Boy Opens on Broadway; Arrivals, Curtain Call and Party
 
Three-time Tony Award winner Frank Langella stars as internationally-known financier Gregor Antonescu, whose empire is toppling, in Terence Rattigan's 1963 character study, Man and Boy, which opened on Broadway Oct. 9.

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:

Langella and Driver are joined by Francesca Faridany as Gregor's wife, Countess Antonescu, who signs blank checks to fund her husband's schemes; Tony nominee Zach Grenier as businessman and possible merger partner Mark Herries; Brian Hutchison as accountant David Beeston, who discovers accounting irregularities; Virginia Kull as Basil's actress girlfriend, Carol Penn; and Michael Siberry as Sven Johnson, Gregor's secret-keeper and right-hand man.

Show times are Tuesday-Saturday at 8 PM with matinees Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday at 2 PM.
