Roundabout's Philanthropist Ends June 28

News   Roundabout's Philanthropist Ends June 28
Roundabout Theatre Company's new Broadway production of Christopher Hampton's The Philanthropist plays its final performance June 28 at the American Airlines Theatre.

Matthew Broderick, Jonathan Cake, Anna Madeley and Steven Weber star in this David Grindley-directed revival, which began a limited engagement April 10 toward an April 26 opening. By close, it will have played 19 preview performances and 73 regular performances.

The cast also includes Tate Ellington (John), Jennifer Mudge (Araminta) and Samantha Soule (Liz).

According to Roundabout, "Written as a response to Molière's The Misanthrope, Hampton's biting bourgeois comedy examines the empty, insular lives of college intellectuals. At the center of the story is Philip (Broderick), a professor who seems almost absurdly removed from the political turmoil surrounding him, including the assassination of the Prime Minister and his cabinet."

Hampton is a Tony Award winner and an Academy Award winner. His credits include Sunset Boulevard and Les Liaisons Dangereuses.
