Tony Award winner Doug Hughes directs the Roundabout Theatre Company presentation, which also stars Alvin Epstein, Elizabeth Franz, Jessica Hecht and Euan Morton. Previews began Feb. 2 at the Laura Pels Theater for a limited run through May 6.
Told through a series of flashbacks, Howard Katz centers on the downward spiral of the eponymous cutthroat talent agent whose life has taken a turn for the worse. Marber directed the world premiere of his work in June 2001 at London's National Theater's Cottesloe space.
