Tom Stoppard's Tony-winning play returns to Broadway following a West End run, featuring Tom Hollander reprising his starring role as Henry Carr
Tom Stoppard’s Tony Award-winning play Travesties returns to Broadway for the first time since its 1975 run, in a new production directed by Patrick Marber. The revival arrives on Broadway following a run in the West End and with the show’s London star, Tom Hollander, reprising his starring role as Henry Carr.
Set in 1917 Zurich, Travesties is about a British military official (Hollander) who recalls serving in Zurich while James Joyce and Vladimir Lenin were also there. He imagines a meeting between the two men, which is performed in the style of Oscar Wilde's The Importance of Being Earnest.
