A Cover Story: Man and Boy

PlayBlog   A Cover Story: Man and Boy
The Roundabout Theatre Company's revival of Terence Rattigan's Man and Boy begins performances at the American Airlines Theatre Sept. 9.

Here's how Roundabout bills the 1963 play: "At the height of the Great Depression, ruthless financier Gregor Antonescu's (Langella) business is dangerously close to crumbling. In order to escape the wolves at his door, Gregor tracks down his estranged son Basil in the hopes of using his Greenwich Village apartment as a base to make a company-saving deal. Can this reunion help them reconcile? Or will this corrupt father use his only son as a pawn in one last power play? Man and Boy is a gripping story about family, success and what we're willing to sacrifice for both."

Maria Aitken (The 39 Steps) directs a cast that includes Oscar nominee and three-time Tony winner Frank Langella (Frost/Nixon, Fortune's Fool, Seascape) as Gregor Antonescu, with Adam Driver as Basil Anthony, Francesca Faridany as Countess Antonescu, Zach Grenier as Mark Herries, Brian Hutchison as David Beeston, Virginia Kull as Carol Penn and Michael Siberry as Sven Johnson.
