The new Broadway production of Stephen King's Misery, starring Bruce Willis and Laurie Metcalf, has announced a policy for student rush tickets at the Broadhurst Theatre. A limited number of $35 seats will be available to students 25 years old and younger when the box office opens for that day’s performance. Photo identification is required and patrons are limited to two tickets per person.

William Goldman's stage adaptation of the Oscar-winning film opened on November 15. The production stars Willis in his Broadway debut as romance novelist Paul Sheldon, who is rescued from a car crash by his "number-one fan," Annie Wilkes, played by two-time Tony nominee Metcalf. The story follows Paul after he wakes up captive in Annie's secluded home where she forces him to write a novel to her specifications. Leon Addison Brown completes the company.

Goldman's film adaptation of Misery, based on Stephen King's celebrated novel, was directed by Rob Reiner and released in 1990, starring James Caan and Kathy Bates, who won an Academy Award for her performance as Annie Wilkes. Will Frears directs the stage production, which made its world premiere at Bucks County Playhouse in the fall of 2012.
