The Broadway premiere of Brief Encounter, the Kneehigh Theatre's highly theatrical and widely acclaimed adaptation of Noël Coward's stage and film romance, began performances Sept. 10 at Studio 54.



This will be a limited engagement through Dec. 5. According to Roundabout, Brief Encounter "is an imaginative new work that combines elements of Noël Coward's beloved screenplay, and the one-act play [Still Life] on which it was based, with song, dance and Technicolor displays of emotion."

Here is a look at the show:
