Tony Goldwyn, following a six-year stint as President Fitzgerald Grant on ABC's Scandal, will return to Broadway this fall in Network. He'll appear alongside the previously announced Bryan Cranston and Tatiana Maslany in the Ivo van Hove-directed production, which begins performances November 10 at the Belasco Theatre. Opening night is set for December 6.
Goldwyn will play Max Schumacher, the head of news at the fictional network UBS, where Howard Beale (Cranston, reprising his Olivier-winning performance from the National Theatre premiere) serves as a longtime anchor. He previously appeared on Broadway in Promises, Promises and Holiday.
Goldwyn is the latest Scandal alum set to appear on the Main Stem; star Kerry Washington returns to the stage next month in American Son, and Katie Lowes is currently making her Broadway debut in Waitress.
Rounding out the company are Tony winner Frank Wood, Joshua Boone, Alyssa Bresnahan, Ron Canada, Julian Elijah Martinez, Nick Wyman, Barzin Akhavan, Jason Babinsky, Camila Cano-Flavia, Eric Chayefsky, Gina Daniels, Nicholas Guest, Joe Paulik, Susannah Perkins, Victoria Sendra, Henry Stram, Bill Timoney, Joseph Varca, Nicole Villamil, and Jeena Yi.
The play, adapted by Lee Hall and based on Paddy Chayefsky's screenplay of the 1976 film, is scheduled to run through March 17, 2019.
