Ever since I saw the 2006 Broadway revival of Awake and Sing I have been a huge fan of it's playwright Clifford Odet's. That production by the way went on to win the Tony Award winner for Best Play Revival of the Year. In fact this season there are two Odet plays on Broadway. Golden Boy which just wrapped a critically acclaimed run this past Sunday and The Big Knife which is set to open on Broadway this Spring at the American Airlines Theatre.
The show starring Emmy Award winner and Tony nominee Bobby Cannavale is set to begin previews on March 22 with opening night scheduled for April 16. As of now the show is set to close on June 2 but with most shows produced by the Roundabout Theatre Company they usually extend if reviews are good. Now for those of you that would like more information about The Big Knife here is a brief synopsis about the play from the shows website. Enjoy!
In the golden age of Hollywood cinema, actors may have all the glory, but studio execs have all the power. The Hoff-Federated studio has had its most successful star, Charlie Castle, over a barrel ever since it helped cover up a mistake that could have ended his career. When a woman with insider knowledge threatens to come forward, the studio heads will stop at nothing to protect Charlie's secret... but how far is he willing to go before he quits the movie business for good? Set in a glossy world of rumor mills and rocky friendships, Clifford Odets' The Big Knife is a riveting, bitingly funny look at how challenging it can be to stay true to yourself--when everyone expects you to play a part.
I for one can't wait to see this. Tickets for this Hollywood drama are now on sale. By the way for those of you looking for tickets to see The Big Knife you are in luck.
