I am thrilled to share the news of another exciting production for our 50th Anniversary Season. It is my pleasure to announce that Clive Owen will be making his Broadway debut in Harold Pinter’s Old Times, in a production directed by Douglas Hodge.
You know Douglas Hodge from his incredible performance in Roundabout’s Cyrano de Bergerac in 2012. Doug is a Tony and Olivier Award-winner and an accomplished actor, director, writer, and composer, currently appearing as Inspector Rusk in Showtime’s “Penny Dreadful.” He is known as a leading interpreter of Pinter’s work and has appeared in Pinter plays at the Donmar Warehouse, the National Theatre, and the Comedy Theatre (now the Harold Pinter Theatre), among others. Doug will be making his Broadway directorial debut with Old Times, and I know the show could not be in more capable hands.
I am honored to welcome Clive Owen to the Roundabout stage. Clive is perhaps best known for his film and television work, which includes Children of Men, Sin City, and The International as well as the HBO film Hemingway & Gellhorn (Emmy, SAG, and Golden Globe nominations) and Cinemax’s “The Knick” (Golden Globe nomination). Clive is also an acclaimed stage actor, having performed at the Young Vic, the Donmar Warehouse, and the Royal National Theater. He originated the role of Dan in Patrick Marber’s Closer and appeared in Mike Nichols’s film version of the play as Larry, a performance for which he received a Golden Globe Award, BAFTA Award, and Academy Award nomination.
I am so excited to have these two incredible artists join the 50th Anniversary Season and to bring this powerful, haunting play to our audience.
