News   PHOTO CALL: Meet and Greet With the Cast of Man and Boy, Starring Frank Langella The cast of Roundabout Theatre Company's revival of Terence Rattigan's Man and Boy, starring Frank Langella, met the press Aug. 9. Previews begin at the American Airlines Theatre Sept. 9.

Maria Aitken (The 39 Steps) directs a cast that includes Oscar nominee and three-time Tony winner Langella (Frost/Nixon, Fortune's Fool, Seascape) as Gregor Antonescu, with Adam Driver as Basil Anthony, Francesca Faridany as Countess Antonescu, Zach Grenier as Mark Herries, Brian Hutchison as David Beeston, Virginia Kull as Carol Penn and Michael Siberry as Sven Johnson.

The production is part of the centennial celebration of the birth of English playwright Rattigan. Man and Boy will open on Oct. 9 for a limited engagement to Nov. 27.

Here is a look at the event:


  Here's how Roundabout bills the 1963 play: "At the height of the Great Depression, ruthless financier Gregor Antonescu's (Langella) business is dangerously close to crumbling. In order to escape the wolves at his door, Gregor tracks down his estranged son Basil 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."

Rattigan's plays French Without Tears, After The Dance, Flare Path, Love In Idleness, While The Sun Shines, The Winslow Boy, The Browning Version, Harlequinade, Adventure Story, Who Is Sylvia?, The Deep Blue Sea, The Sleeping Prince, Separate Tables, Variation On A Theme, Ross, Man And Boy, A Bequest To The Nation, In Praise Of Love and Cause Célèbre. He died in 1977.
