Full Casting Announced for Travesties

Monday, 11 December 2017

Travesties will star Tom Hollander as Henry Carr with Peter McDonald reprising his role as James Joyce from the Menier Chocolate Factory production, Seth Numrich as Tristan Tzara, Nicholas Woodeson as Lenin, Scarlett Strallen as Gwendolen, Sara Topham as Cecily, Opal Alladin as Nadya and Patrick Kerr as Bennett. 

Tony nominee Patrick Marber will return to direct after the sold-out productions at London’s Menier Chocolate Factory and the West End. 

Travesties will begin preview performances on Thursday, March 29, 2018 and opens officially on Tuesday, April 24, 2018. This is a limited engagement through Sunday, June 17, 2018 at the American Airlines Theatre on Broadway (227 West 42nd Street). 

Travesties returns to Broadway in a "near-miraculous production" of "mind-bending splendor" (New York Times). In 1917 Zurich, an artist – Tristan Tzara, a writer – James Joyce, and a revolutionary – Lenin, collide in a kaleidoscopic thrill-ride that's "wickedly playful, intensely entertaining, infectiously theatrical" (Time Out London).  

Roundabout reunites with playwright Tom Stoppard (Indian Ink, The Real Thing) and director Patrick Marber (Howard Katz, After Miss Julie) for a dazzling revival from London's Menier Chocolate Factory (Sunday in the Park with George).   

The creative team includes Tim Hatley (Set and Costume Design), Neil Austin (Lighting Design), Adam Cork (Sound Design and Original Music) and Polly Bennett (Movement). 

Roundabout is additionally pleased to welcome returning actors Sara Topham (The Importance of Being Earnest), Patrick Kerr (The Ritz) and Opal Alladin (Hedda Gabler).
