Yasmina Reza's second New York premiere, The Unexpected Man played Off-Broadway in 2000, but 2003 will apparently see the French playwright return to Broadway, where her Art triumphed. Reza's comedy Life x 3 will open on Broadway next year, according to the New York Times.
The producer Ron Kastner said of the casting, "We're out to some major names."
In Life, a couple are putting their son to bed when their dinner guests arrive — 24 hours early! The unexpected evening then splits into three possible outcomes — hence the play's title.
Life x 3 was first seen at the National Theatre in December 2000, from where it moved to the Old Vic in February 2001. —Robert Simonson
