We are pleased to announce the full cast of a new production of John Osborne’s play Look Back in Anger, directed by Roundabout Associate Artist Sam Gold.
The cast will feature Adam Driver as “Cliff,” Sarah Goldberg as “Allison,” Anastasia Griffith as “Helena,” and Matthew Rhys as “Jimmy”.
We are thrilled to welcome back Adam Driver. He is currently performing in our production of Man and Boy at the American Airlines Theatre, where he also appeared last season in Mrs. Warren’s Profession.
We are also excited to welcome so many new faces to the Roundabout family. Anastasia and Matthew are prominent British actors, best known in the States for their television work—she on Damages and he on Brothers and Sisters. Sarah is an Olivier Award nominee for her work role in The Royal Court's production of Clybourne Park.
Director Sam Gold is a Roundabout Theatre Company Associate Artist and recently staged the acclaimed production of Tigers Be Still at Roundabout Underground.
Look Back in Anger will begin performances on January 13, 2012 and will open officially on February 2, 2012 at the Laura Pels Theatre at the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre. The production will play a limited engagement through April 8, 2012.
Look Back in Anger is often regarded as a pivotal theatrical work of the last century. It is a shocking and vibrant drama about four people struggling to live together and love each other in 1950s England.
Look Back in Anger premiered in 1956 at the Royal Court Theatre in London. In 1957, the play opened on Broadway and was nominated for a Tony Award for Best Play. We have a history with Osborne’s work, having staged Look Back in Anger (1980), Inadmissible Evidence (1981) and The Entertainer (1982).
Tickets will be available on Friday, September 23 by calling Roundabout Ticket Services at (212)719-1300, online at www.roundabouttheatre.org or at the Laura Pels Theatre at the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre box office (111 West 46 Street).
