Performances begin September 10 in the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre for Manhattan Theatre Club's Broadway premiere of The Height of the Storm by Tony-nominated French writer Florian Zeller, translated by Christopher Hampton. Jonathan Kent directs the drama, which arrives in the U.S. following an acclaimed London run, with Olivier and Tony winner Jonathan Pryce and three-time Olivier Award winner Eileen Atkins reprising their starring roles.
Joining them on Broadway are Lucy Cohu, Amanda Drew, James Hillier, and Lisa O’Hare.
In The Height of the Storm, which officially opens September 24, André and Madeleine have spent 50 years married—until their life together begins to unravel, and their loving relationship is faced with the inevitability of change.
The Broadway production features scenic and costume design by Anthony Ward, lighting design by Hugh Vanstone, sound design by Paul Groothuis, and music by Gary Yershon.
