Travesties

March 29 - June 17, 2018

Roundabout Theatre Company partner with London's Menier Chocolate Factory to bring this pleasurable revival of Tom Stoppard's bouncy romp through history to Broadway in Spring 2018. Original star Tom Hollander (The Night Manager, Pirates of the Carribean) will reprise his performance as Henry Carr, the unreliable narrator whose memories form the basis for the play. Hysterically funny, somewhat educational and full of Stoppard's mind-bending literary genius, Travesties is a theatrical gem.

Originally known as the Selwyn Theatre, the American Airlines Theatre is a historic Italian Renaissance-style Broadway theater in New York City. The theater was designed by George Keister and built by the Selwyn brothers in 1918. It was used for musicals and drama productions, and was then converted to host film productions. For a short time, it was used as a visitor's center, and then wasn't used for much of the 1900s, until 1997 when it was restored and renovated.
