About this show

David Leveaux directs this 2000 Tony Award-winning Broadway revival of Tom Stoppard's 1984 play. The production provides an intellectual story rife with unanticipated moments of emotion ranging from anger to desperation. The Real Thing is about marriage and writing, high art and pop culture, and truth and acting?both onstage and in real life. The play centers on Henry, a successful writer attempting to balance his professional and personal lives while finding the two blurring together more often than not. Stephen Dillane and Jennifer Ehle, both of whom received Tonys for their roles in this powerful play, star.
