Roundabout Miss Julie Revival May Reach Broadway at Studio 54 in Fall

News   Roundabout Miss Julie Revival May Reach Broadway at Studio 54 in Fall Roundabout Theatre Company is planning on a Broadway revival of August Strindberg's classic Miss Julie at Studio 54 this fall, according to the non-profit's website.

The work has seen a number of productions in recent years since the company had scrapped plans for producing the play in fall of 2002.

Scott Schwartz (Golda's Balcony, The Foreigner) staged the work Off-Broadway at the Cherry Lane Theatre last summer. A Richard Nelson adaptation currently runs at Yale Repertory Theatre. And Marin Hinkle will portray the title character for an upcoming Craig Lucas adaptation at New York's Rattlestick Theatre. (Closer playwright Patrick Marber even provided London's Donmar Warehouse with his own take on the work with After Miss Julie in 2003.)

In Miss Julie, a flirtation between an young aristocratic woman and her father's servant becomes more than the lady bargained for in the psycho-sexual drama filled with obsession, ambition and manipulation.

The 2002 Roundabout staging of the drama — translated by Richard Nelson and to be directed by David Leveaux — was slated to open on Broadway starring Natasha Richardson and Philip Seymour Hoffman. When Richardson backed out due to scheduling conflicts, the production never materialized. If the new run happens, it would be the third revival of the Strindberg play the company has staged — following two Off-Broadway stagings in 1973 and 1981.

Roundabout spokespersons could not confirm any details about the production. For more information, visit www.roundabouttheatre.org.
