Ahead of Opening, The Height of the Storm Gets Extended on Broadway
The new play is written by Florian Zeller.
The Broadway run of Florian Zeller's The Height of the Storm, starring Olivier Award winners Eileen Atkins and Jonathan Pryce, has been extended by a week through November 24. The Manhattan Theatre Club production opens tonight at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre.
Directed by Jonathan Kent and translated by Christopher Hampton, the play is describe as follows: "For 50 years the lives of André and Madeleine have been filled with the everyday pleasures and unfathomable mysteries of an enduring marriage, until suddenly their life together begins to unravel, and this loving relationship is faced with the inevitability of change."
Joining Pryce and Atkins are Lucy Cohu, Amanda Drew, James Hillier, and Lisa O'Hare. Pryce, Atkins, Cohu, Drew, and Hillier originated their roles at Wyndham's Theatre in London last fall. The creative team for The Height of the Storm will include Anthony Ward (scenic and costume design), Hugh Vanstone (lighting design), Paul Groothuis (sound design), and Gary Yershon (composer).
