News   PHOTO CALL: Heartbreak House
Philip Bosco, Swoosie Kurtz, Byron Jennings, Lily Rabe and Laila Robins star in the Roundabout Theatre Company's revival of George Bernard Shaw's Heartbreak House. Previews began on Sept. 15, with an opening set for Oct. 11.

Robin Lefevre directs the company's first entry of the new 2006-2007 season at the American Airlines Theatre. Penned by Shaw, Heartbreak House follows "the unlikely romantic encounters that occur in an estate on the English countryside."

Kurtz recently played in Roundabout's The Mineola Twins. The actress won a Tony Award nomination for her last appearance on Broadway in Frozen. Other stage credits include Imaginary Friends, Love Letters, A History of the American Film, Tartuffe, Ah, Wilderness! and The House of Blue Leaves, Fifth of July. She earned Tony Awards for the latter two.

Roundabout's perpetually employed Jennings has been seen in A Touch of the Poet, The Foreigner and The Man Who Came to Dinner. Rabe starred on Broadway in Steel Magnolias and Off-Broadway in Colder Than Here. Robins also appeared opposite Kurtz in Frozen.

Bosco — last seen at Roundabout in Twelve Angry Men on Broadway — will star as Captain Shotover. This production marks his 13th production with the company including Off-Broadway productions of A Month in the Country, Don Juan in Hell, Hedda Gabler, Inadmissable Evidence, Misalliance, The Caretaker, Learned Ladies, Ah, Wilderness!, Come Back, Little Sheba, Master Class and A Man For All Seasons.

The cast also includes Bill Camp, John Christopher Jones, Gareth Saxe and Jenny Sterlin.
