I am thrilled to announce two more productions for our 2013-2014 Season. The first production at the American Airlines Theatre will be a revival of The Winslow Boy by Terence Rattigan, directed by Lindsay Posner and starring Roger Rees and Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio. We will also produce the World Premiere of Cutie and Bear, a Roundabout Commission by Bekah Brunstetter that will be directed by Evan Cabnet at the Laura Pels Theatre.
Lindsay is a British director of great esteem, and his production of The Winslow Boy at The Old Vic earlier this year was truly incredible. We’ll be mounting that production with a new cast, led by the great Roger Rees. Roger has been a part of the Roundabout family since 1996, most recently seen in our production of Uncle Vanya (2000), and I’m sure he will be incredible in this play. Mary Elizabeth will be back on Broadway for the first time since her Tony-nominated performance in Man of La Mancha.
Bekah has had much success Off-Broadway with Be a Good Little Widow at Ars Nova and Oohrah! at the Atlantic. We’ve had our eye on Bekah for quite some time, and I’m excited to finally have the opportunity to bring her exceptional play to our stage. And it will be wonderful to welcome back Evan, who directed The Dream of the Burning Boy in the Underground and has been on board with Cutie and Bear since the first developmental reading.
I’m pleased to be adding these exciting productions to the 2013-2014 Season, and look forward to sharing more in the coming weeks. Productions in the 2013-2014 Season are currently only available to subscribers. To learn more about our variety of subscription packages and exclusive benefits please visit our website.
