British stars Lindsay Duncan and Alan Rickman, stars of the new Broadway revival of Private Lives flank British star Simon Callow, as they celebrate the Broadway opening of his The Mystery of Charles Dickens April 25.
Callow plays the celebrated Victorian novelist, as well as more than 40 of his creations, including the jovial Mr. Micawber ("David Copperfield"), besotted nurse Mrs. Gamp ("Martin Chuzzlewit"), murderous villian Bill Sikes ("Oliver Twist") and the deluded Miss Havisham ("Great Expectations"). Performing without a mike, Callow makes his Broadway acting debut in Dickens.
