The show returns to Broadway for the sixth time, now starring Kevin Kline.
The Broadway revival of Noël Coward’s Present Laughter began previews March 10 at the St. James Theatre. The production marks the stage return of Academy Award and two-time Tony Award winner Kevin Kline after a ten-year absence.
The current staging marks the sixth Broadway production of Present Laughter since it debuted in 1946. Coward revived it in 1958, taking the role of successful light-play author Garry Essendine for himself.
It was done again in 1982, starring George C. Scott (with early-career Nathan Lane as the aspiring writer Roland Maule), in 1998 with Frank Langella as Essendine, and in 2010 starring Victor Garber.
