Roundabout Theatre Company's production of NoŽl Coward's Present Laughter, starring Victor Garber, celebrated its opening night on Broadway Jan. 21.

Nicholas Martin directs the loosely-autobiographical comedy that tells the story of matinee idol Garry Essendine, a man who "sits at the center of his own universe," according to show notes. "While Garry struggles to plan his upcoming trip to Africa, his elegant London flat is invaded by a love struck ingenue, an adulterous producer and a married seductress, not to mention Garry's estranged wife and a crazed young playwright. Just before Garry escapes, the full extent of his misdemeanors is discovered and all hell breaks loose."

Four-time Tony Award nominee Victor Garber leads the cast that includes Tony winner Harriet Harris, Tony nominee Brooks Ashmanskas, Lisa Banes, Nancy E. Carroll, Alice Duffy, Holley Fain, Pamela Jane Gray, James Joseph OíNeil, Richard Poe and Marc Vietor.
