Back in April, we expressed our unwavering thrill that genius playwright Harold Pinter’s Betrayal would be heading to Broadway. And not only that, but Rachel Weisz and Daniel Craig would be taking on the leading roles in the production, with direction by the iconic Mike Nichols. And as his work is wont to be, Pinter ‘s play is a biting and absurd tale of the painful romantic entanglement caught in the nuances of everyday life.
Told chronologically in reverse, Betrayal will star Weisz as a woman involved in a serious affair, with Craig as her unassuming husband. So to top it off, as if we weren’t already brimming with excitement, it appears that former LCD Sound System frontman James Murphy will be helming the original music for the play. And oh yes, I can certainly live with that.
The show is set to debut in previews on October 1 with an October 27th opening at the Barrymore Theater, but in the meantime, check out the photos below from rehearsals, courtesy of Vulture.
