{module ad_left_body}"Frank Langella is a wonder......a compelling reason to see Man & Boy is the occasion it gives it's star to explore the pathology of power. Few performers are as good as he at capturing the egomania that fuels (and sometimes topples) the wildly successful. He's a villain New York audiences should really love to hate. That we remain in his thrall is Mr. Langella's personal triumph."
– Ben Brantley, The New York Times

"Frank Langella is sensational....still as a snake he exists in a riveting solitude that reads as both authority and threat. A man who would steal your stove and come back for the smoke."
– John Lahr, New Yorker Magazine

on Broadway at the American Airlines Theatre

Man and Boy received critical acclaim for the production as well as for Frank Langella who was proclaimed by the Wall Street Journal as “one of our greatest stage actors.”

Man and Boy will have played 35 previews and 57 regular performances at the American Airlines Theatre on Broadway (227 West 42nd Street).

The cast also features Adam Driver as “Basil Anthony”, Francesca Faridany as “Countess Antonescu”, Zach Grenier as “Mark Herries”, Brian Hutchison as “David Beeston”, Virginia Kull as “Carol Penn”, Michael Siberry as “Sven Johnson”.

As part of the centennial celebration of English playwright Terence Rattigan, Man and Boy opened officially on October 9, 2011 at the American Airlines Theatre on Broadway (227 West 42nd Street). This is a limited engagement through November 27, 2011.

The creative team includes Derek McLane (Sets), Martin Pakledinaz (Costumes), Kevin Adams (Lights) & John Gromada (Original Music and Sound Design).

Mr. Langella’s memoir Dropped Names will be released by HarperCollins in 2012.  He was recently nominated for an Academy Award for his performance as “Richard Nixon” in Ron Howard’s film Frost/Nixon and has subsequently appeared in Oliver Stone’s Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, All Good Things and The Box.  Mr. Langella returns to Broadway and Roundabout Theatre Company following his 2008 performance as “Sir Thomas More” in A Man for All Seasons.  Previous Roundabout credits also include The Father (1996) and Cyrano De Bergerac (1997).

At the height of the Great Depression, ruthless financier Gregor Antonescu’s (Langella) business is dangerously close to crumbling.  In order to escape the wolves at his door, Gregor tracks down his estranged son Basil in the hopes of using his Greenwich Village apartment as a base to make a company-saving deal.  Can this reunion help them reconcile?  Or will this corrupt father use his only son as a pawn in one last power play?   Man and Boy is a gripping story about family, success and what we’re willing to sacrifice for both.
