The acrobatics of love are performed in high style, which is surely the most enchanting work of stagecraft ever inspired by a movie.

Ben Brantley, New York Times

Acclaimed for the breathtaking reimagining of Coward's iconic story of star-crossed lovers at its New York premiere last year, Kneehigh Theatre's production makes its Broadway debut.

Combining element's of Coward's beloved screenplay and the one-act play on which it was based, this new adaptation adds song and dance and imaginative projections to tell the story of a couple's unrequited love.

This breakout hit from London’s Kneehigh Theatre updates a classic tale of longing with fresh power and passion. Directed by Emma Rice, Brief Encounter is an imaginative new work that combines elements of the beloved film and the Noel Coward play on which it was based with song, dance and Technicolor displays of emotion.
