The Philanthropist Starring Matthew Broderick Begins Previews Tonight

Tony Award winner and Broadway favorite Matthew Broderick returns to the Great White Way in a revival of the 1970 comedy The Philanthropist written by Tony and Academy Award winner Christopher Hampton. The show which opens April 26 is being produced by the Roundabout Theater Company and is scheduled to run through June 28 at the American Airlines Theatre.

According to Roundabout, "Written as a response to Molière's The Misanthrope, Hampton's biting bourgeois comedy examines the empty, insular lives of college intellectuals. At the center of the story is Philip (Broderick), a professor who seems almost absurdly removed from the political turmoil surrounding him, including the assassination of the Prime Minister and his cabinet."
