New York City
Following a record-breaking run in London’s West End, Rock ‘n’ Roll, a new play by Tom Stoppard, opens on Broadway! The premiere marks the 40th anniversary since Stoppard was introduced to Broadway audiences with Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead.
Directed by Trevor Nunn, members of the original London company, including Brian Cox, Sinead Cusack and Rufus Sewell (winner of the Olivier, London Evening Standard and London Critics’ Circle Awards for his performance), along with Nicole Ansari and Alice Eve, will appear in the Broadway production.
Rock ‘n’ Roll spans the years from 1968 -1990 from the double perspective of Prague, Czechoslovakia, where a rock ‘n’ roll band comes to symbolize resistance to the Communist regime -and of Cambridge, England, where the verities of love and death are shaping the lives of three generations in the family of a Marxist philosopher.
