The cast also features Colin Donnell as “Billy Crocker”, Adam Godley as “Lord Evelyn Oakleigh,” Laura Osnes as “Hope Harcourt,” Jessica Stone as “Erma,” Walter Charles as “Captain,” Robert Creighton as “Purser,” Andrew Cao as “Luke,” Raymond J. Lee as “John,” with John McMartin as “Elisha Whitney” and Jessica Walter as “Evangeline Harcourt.” Additional cast members include Clyde Alves, Ward Billeisen, Joyce Chittick, Nikki Renée Daniels, Margot De La Barre, Kimberly Fauré, Josh Franklin, Justin Greer, Daniel J.

The creative team includes Rob Fisher (Musical Director) and David Chase (Dance Arranger).  The design team includes Derek McLane (Sets), Martin Pakledinaz (Costumes), Peter Kaczorowski (Lights) and Brian Ronan (Sound).

ALL ABOARD for this saucy and splendid new production of Cole Porter’s musical romp across the Atlantic.  When the S.S. American heads out to sea, etiquette and convention head out the portholes as two unlikely pairs set off on the course to true love… proving that sometimes destiny needs a little help from a crew of singing sailors, an exotic disguise and some good old-fashioned blackmail. Peppering this hilariously bumpy ride are some of musical theater’s most memorable standards, including “You're the Top,” “Blow, Gabriel, Blow,” “It’s De-Lovely,” “I Get A Kick Out of You,” and “Anything Goes.”

Two-time Tony® Award winner Kathleen Marshall returns to the Roundabout, where she directed and choreographed the Tony® Award winning musical The Pajama Game starring Harry Connick Jr. and Kelli O’Hara.  Her history with Roundabout began in 1993 when she was the Associate Choreographer to her brother Rob Marshall in the critically acclaimed Broadway production of She Loves Me.  Kathleen also choreographed Roundabout’s productions of Follies and 1776 and won a 2004 Tony® Award for her choreography of Wonderful Town.

The musical Anything Goes,premiered on Broadway on November 21, 1934 at the Alvin Theatre, starring Ethel Merman. The first Broadway revival of Anything Goes premiered on Broadway on October 19, 1987 at the Vivian Beaumont Theatre and received the Tony® Award for best revival.

Major support for Anything Goes provided by The Blanche and Irving Laurie Foundation.

Roundabout Theatre Company

ANNOUNCES A 17-WEEK EXTENSION OF

Brian Bedford

Starring in & Directing

THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST

By Oscar Wilde

Now through July 3rd, 2011

at the American Airlines Theatre on Broadway

The People in the Picture

will open on April 28th as previously announced

at Studio 54.

“The great actor Brian Bedford is brilliant in this funny and effervescent production.  It’s one of the great performances of the season; to miss it would most definitely look like carelessness.” – Charles Isherwood, New York Times

“Funny as hell!” – Scott Brown, New York Magazine

 

Roundabout Theatre Company (Todd Haimes, Artistic Director) is pleased to announce a 17-week extension of the critically acclaimed Broadway production of Oscar Wilde’s comedy The Importance of Being Earnest, directed by and starring Brian Bedford as “Lady Bracknell,” at the American Airlines Theatre on Broadway (227 West 42nd St.).

The limited engagement of The Importance of Being Earnest has been extended through Sunday, July 3rd, 2011.  It was originally scheduled to run through March 6th, 2011.

The new musical The People in the Picture which was scheduled to open at the American Airlines Theatre this spring, will now open at Roundabout’s Studio 54.  Mike Stoller, Artie Butler & Iris Rainer Dart’s The People in the Picture, starring Donna Murphy, directed by Leonard Foglia will begin previews on Friday, April 1st and open Thursday, April 28th, 2011 as previously announced.  Roundabout subscribers with tickets to The People in the Picture will be issued new tickets, with the same performance date, reflecting the change of venue in the coming weeks. 

The Importance of Being Earnest cast also features Dana Ivey as “Miss Prism,” Paxton Whitehead as “Rev. Canon Chasuble,” Santino Fontana as “Algernon Moncrieff,” David Furr as “John Worthing,” Tim MacDonald as “Merriman,” Paul O’Brien as “Lane,” Charlotte Parry as “Cecily Cardew,” andSara Topham as “Gwendolen Fairfax.”  The design team includes Desmond Heeley (Sets & Costumes), Duane Schuler (Lights) and Drew Levy (Sound).

The Importance of Being Earnest is a glorious comedy of mistaken identity, which ridicules codes of propriety and etiquette.  Dashing men-about-town John Worthing and Algernon Moncrieff pursue fair ladies Gwendolen Fairfax and Cecily Cardew.   Matters are complicated by the imaginary characters invented by both men to cover their on-the-sly activities – not to mention the disapproval of Gwendolen’s mother, the formidable Lady Bracknell.

Wilde’s classic production premiered in 1895 at the St. James Theatre in London offering a stinging critique of love, sex and social hypocrisy that remains relevant today.

The Stratford Shakespeare Festival presented an acclaimed production of The Importance of Being Earnest, directed by and starring Brian Bedford, in 2009.  Following the extended run of The Importance of Being Earnest at Roundabout, Brian Bedford and Sara Topham will return to Stratford to appear in The Misanthrope which runs from July 31 to October 29, 2011.

This play marks the first time a two-production season has been produced at Roundabout Underground since the program premiered in 2007.  The Dream of the Burning Boy follows the critically acclaimed & sold out hit Tigers Be Still from fall 2010.

The Dream of the Burning Boy will begin preview performances on Friday, February 25th, 2011 and officially open on Wednesday, March 23rd, 2011. This will be a limited engagement through Sunday, May 8th, 2011.  All tickets for Roundabout Underground productions are $20.

In The Dream of the Burning Boy the sudden death of a high school overachiever exposes a secret that could destroy those left behind, or bring them closer together. A bittersweet story of choices made, opportunities lost, and finding the strength to move on.

Roundabout is thrilled to welcome back Reed Birney who appeared in Tigers Be Still this fall.

The Dream of the Burning Boy is the fifth production of Roundabout Underground, an initiative launched in 2007 to introduce and cultivate artists in Roundabout’s 62-seat Black Box Theatre, at the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre (111 West 46th Street, NYC, NY, 10036).  Prior productions include Speech & Debate (2007), The Language of Trees (2008), Ordinary Days (2009) & Tigers Be Still (2010).

The 62-seat Black Box Theatre, below the Laura Pels Theatre in the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre, allows Roundabout to take artistic risks that are better suited for a more intimate space. 

The Dream of the Burning Boy is made possible with major support from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, The Harold and Mimi Steinberg Charitable Trust, and Jodi Glucksman.

The Dream of the Burning Boy benefits from Roundabout’s New Play Production Fund with a gift provided by Laura S. Rodgers/The Honorable Ann W. Brown & Donald A. Brown.

This state-of-the-art off-Broadway theatre and education complex is made possible by a major gift from The Harold and Mimi Steinberg Charitable Trust. The Trust was created in 1986 by Harold Steinberg to promote and advance American Theatre as a vital part of our culture by supporting playwrights, encouraging the development and production of new work, and providing financial assistance to theatre companies across the country.

ALL ABOARD for this saucy and splendid new production of Cole Porter’s musical romp across the Atlantic.  When the S.S. American heads out to sea, etiquette and convention head out the portholes as two unlikely pairs set off on the course to true love… proving that sometimes destiny needs a little help from a crew of singing sailors, an exotic disguise and some good old-fashioned blackmail. Peppering this hilariously bumpy ride are some of musical theater’s most memorable standards, including “You're the Top,” “Blow, Gabriel, Blow,” “It’s De-Lovely,” “I Get A Kick Out of You,” and “Anything Goes.”

The musical Anything Goes,premiered on Broadway on November 21, 1934 at the Alvin Theatre, starring Ethel Merman. The first Broadway revival of Anything Goes premiered on Broadway on October 19, 1987 at the Vivian Beaumont Theatre and received the Tony® Award for best revival.

The Roundabout Theatre Company’s new production of Oscar Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest is as beautiful as it is witty.  This production is a transfer from Canada's Stratford Shakespeare Festival.  Brian Bedford’s performance as Lady Bracknell is not the first of its kind, but it certainly is one of a kind.  His gender-bending portrayal of Lady Bracknell is played for real.  I’m delighted to say that it is short on camp and long on laughs.  Mr. Bedford contorts his face into grimaces and calls on a vocal range that goes from basso profundo to most lady-like to give this Lady Bracknell a hilarious air.

OPENING NIGHT IS TONIGHT!

ROUNDABOUT THEATRE COMPANY

Presents

Brian Bedford

Directing & Starring in a New Broadway production of

 THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST

By Oscar Wilde

at the American Airlines Theatre on Broadway

 

Opening night is tonight for Roundabout Theatre Company’s new Broadway production of Oscar Wilde’s comedy The Importance of Being Earnest, directed by and starring Brian Bedford as “Lady Bracknell,” at the American Airlines Theatre on Broadway (227 West 42nd St.).

The cast also features Dana Ivey as “Miss Prism,” Paxton Whitehead as “Rev. Canon Chasuble,” Santino Fontana as “Algernon Moncrieff,” David Furr as “John Worthing,” Tim MacDonald as “Merriman,” Paul O’Brien as “Lane,” Charlotte Parry as “Cecily Cardew,” and Sara Topham as “Gwendolen Fairfax.”

The Importance of Being Earnest began previews on Friday, December 17th and opens officially on Thursday, January 13th, 2011. This is a limited engagement through Sunday, March 6th, 2011.

The design team includes Desmond Heeley (Sets & Costumes), Duane Schuler (Lights) and Drew Levy (Sound).

The Importance of Being Earnest is a glorious comedy of mistaken identity, which ridicules codes of propriety and etiquette.  Dashing men-about-town John Worthing and Algernon Moncrieff pursue fair ladies Gwendolen Fairfax and Cecily Cardew.   Matters are complicated by the imaginary characters invented by both men to cover their on-the-sly activities – not to mention the disapproval of Gwendolen’s mother, the formidable Lady Bracknell.

Wilde’s classic production premiered in 1895 at the St. James Theatre in London offering a stinging critique of love, sex and social hypocrisy that remains relevant today.
