First Look at Frank Langella in Broadway's The Father
Florian Zeller's French drama makes its American premiere with Manhattan Theatre Club.
The new play by Molière Award winner Florian Zeller, in a translation by two-time Tony Award winner Christopher Hampton, makes its American premiere with Manhattan Theatre Club.
Joining Langella in the cast are Tony Award nominee Kathryn Erbe (The Speed of Darkness), Brian Avers (The Lieutenant of Inishmore), Charles Borland (A Man for All Seasons), Drama Desk Award nominee Hannah Cabell (Grounded), and Kathleen McNenny (Fish in the Dark).
Directed by Tony Award winner Doug Hughes, the story is described as follows: "Now 80 years old, André (Frank Langella) was once a tap dancer. He lives with his daughter Anne (Kathryn Erbe) and her husband Antoine. Or was he an engineer whose daughter Anne lives in London with her new lover, Pierre? The thing is, he is still wearing his pajamas, and he can't find his watch. He is starting to wonder if he's losing control."
The production opens April 14.
