The Roundabout Theatre Company's extended run of Harold Pinter's Betrayal will close on Feb. 4 at the American Airlines Theatre.
Starring Juliette Binoche, Liev Schreiber and John Slattery, the revival opened on Nov. 14 at the American Airlines Theatre. The show began previews in the Roundabout Theatre Company production Oct. 20. Strong reviews and brisk sales prompted a one-week extension by Roundabout.
Staged by David Leveaux, Betrayal is the second show to go into the Roundabout’s new home, following The Man Who Came to Dinner.
As reported earlier, Pinter's classic of reversed chronology is a razor sharp drama involving marital infidelity and the playwright's keen observations about the dynamics of human relationships. It tells the story of a couple's relationship from the present all the way back to their first encounter.
Schreiber starred, unscathed, as Hamlet in a much-reviled Public Theater production last season. Other credits include In the Summer House and numerous film roles. Binoche won an Oscar for her performance in "The English Patient," and has appeared in many other films, including "The Unbearable Lightness of Being." The French actress made her British theatre debut in 1998 as Ersilia Dei in the Almeida's production of Pirandello's Naked. She appeared on stage as Nina in The Seagull at the Theatre de l'Odeon in Paris. Slattery has appeared in many plays on and Off-Broadway, including Richard Greenberg's Three Days of Rain and Night and Her Stars. Director Leveaux, who recently worked on the Broadway production of The Real Thing counts the Broadway productions of the O'Neill plays Anna Christie with Liam Neeson and Natasha Richardson (Tony Award for Best Revival) and A Moon for the Misbegotten (Tony nomination for Outstanding Direction) among his credits.
