Why See Heartbreak House?

Some unlikely people experience rather unusual romantic entanglements as war is about to alter their world.

Tony Award winners Philip Bosco (Lend Me A Tenor, Twelve Angry Men) and Swoosie Kurtz (The House of Blue Leaves, Frozen) head an all-star cast in this timely comedy from a timeless master. Bosco, in his 13th Roundabout production, stars as "Captain Shotover" and Kurtz joins him as "Hesione Hushabye". Robin Lefevre (The Homecoming) directs Shaw's ruefully funny play, where a weekend on the English countryside becomes a tangle of unlikely attachments and unwanted complications. Romance springs eternal but never mutual, and the most successful relationships have the least to do with love.

Heartbreak House features Byron Jennings (A Touch of the Poet, Twelve Angry Men) as "Hector", Lily Rabe (Steel Magnolias) as "Ellie Dunn" and Laila Robins (Frozen, The Herbal Bed) as "Lady Utterword."

The cast also includes Bill Camp as "Mangan", John Christopher Jones as "Mazzini Dunn", Gareth Saxe as "Randall" and Jenny Sterlin as "Nurse Guinness.""
