BWW TV: Bobby Cannavale, Marin Ireland, Richard Kind and THE BIG KNIFE Cast Celebrate Opening Night!

Roundabout Theatre Company's new Broadway production of The Big Knife, by Clifford Odets, opened on April 16, at the American Airlines Theatre on Broadway (227 West 42nd Street). This will be a limited engagement through June 2, 2013.

BroadwayWorld's Richard Ridge was there for the opening night celebration to chat with the cast and creative team. Check out what Bobby Cannavale and the rest of the gang had to say below!

The cast of The Big Knife features Rachel Brosnahan, Bobby Cannavale, Marin Ireland, Billy Eugene, Richard Kind, Ana Reeder, Reg Rogers, Joey Slotnick, Brenda Wehle, C.J. Wilson, Chip Zien, and directed by Tony Award winner Doug Hughes. The design team includes John Lee Beatty (Sets), Catherine Zuber (Costumes), James F. Ingalls (Lighting), David Van Tieghem (Sound & Original Music).

In the golden age of Hollywood cinema, actors may have all the glory, but studio execs have all the power. The Hoff-Federated studio has had its most successful star, Charlie Castle, over a barrel ever since it helped cover up a mistake that could have ended his career. When a woman with insider knowledge threatens to come forward, the studio heads will stop at nothing to protect Charlie's secret.
