The Kneehigh Theatre's highly theatrical and widely acclaimed adaptation of Noel Coward's romance, Brief Encounter, makes its Broadway debut Sept. 10 at Studio 54.

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." The staging, adapted and directed by Emma Rice, includes songs, incidental music, dance, melodrama, film projections and comedy to create a unique hybrid.

The cast of Kneehigh vets and British and U.S. performers will include Joseph Alessi (Albert/Fred), Dorothy Atkinson (Beryl), Damon Daunno (Bill/Bobbie), Gabriel Ebert (Stanley), Edward Jay (Musician), Annette McLaughlin (Myrtle), Adam Pleeth (Musician), Tristan Sturrock (Alec), Hannah Yelland (Laura).
