The Broadway revival of Noël Coward’s Present Laughter, which saw Kevin Kline earn his third Tony Award last month for his performance as Garry Essendine, plays its final performance at the St. James Theatre July 2.

The production began previews March 10 and officially opened April 5. Directed by Tony nominee Moritz von Stuelpnagel, the show also stars Tony and Emmy nominee Kate Burton as Liz Essendine, Tony nominee Kristine Nielsen as Monica Reed, and TV favorite Cobie Smulders as Joanna Lyppiatt.

Though it comes to an end on Broadway, there is life yet for the acclaimed revival, which was nominated for three Tony Awards. Ahead of its final performance, the production was captured live by Broadway HD and Thirteen/WNET and will be made available to view later in the year.

Completing the cast are Bhavesh Patel as Roland Maule, Tony nominee Reg Rogers as Morris Dixon, Matt Bittner as Fred, Ellen Harvey as Miss Erikson, Peter Francis James as Henry Lyppiatt, Tedra Millan as Daphne Stillington, and Sandra Shipley as Lady Saltburn, with Kelley Curran, Rachel Pickup, James Riordan, and David L. Townsend.
