The Knick star Clive Owen will be on Broadway this fall as part of the the Roundabout Theatre Company’s 50th anniversary season, the company announced today.
Owen will make his Broadway debut in a revival of Harold Pinter’s Old Times directed by Douglas Hodge. Hodge won a Tony in 2010 for his performance in La Cage aux Folles. Owen is set to play Deeley, a man who, in the course of the play, meets his wife’s friend, Anna.
“In planning our 50th anniversary season it was important to me to include a play by one of the most influential modern dramatists: Harold Pinter,” artistic director Todd Haimes said in a statement. “My first season with Roundabout included Old Times, our first Broadway season opened with The Homecoming and we opened the first Laura Pels Theatre with Moonlight. It is with great joy that we open our 50th season with Harold Pinter, and welcome Clive for his Broadway debut.”
The production will start performances on Sept. 17 and open Oct. 15. Owen is just one British star making his first trip to Broadway this fall in a Roundabout production: Keira Knightley is starring in Therese Raquin, which starts previews Oct. 1.
