Roundabout Theatre Company has just announced a new Broadway production of The Philadelphia Story, a comedy by Philip Barry, directed by two-time Tony® Award nominee Alex Timbers.
In fall 2013, The Philadelphia Story will begin a limited engagement on Broadway at the American Airlines Theatre on Broadway (227 West 42nd Street).
The cast and creative team will be announced soon.
The Philadelphia Story is a witty comedy of romance and manners set in Philadelphia high society during the late 1930s. The play was last seen on Broadway in 1981 starring Blythe Danner, Frank Converse and Edward Herrmann. The Philadelphia Story premiered on Broadway in 1939 starring Katherine Hepburn and following its successful run, was made into the well-known, and Academy Award nominated, 1940 film also starring Hepburn, with Cary Grant and James Stewart.
Alex Timbers returns to Roundabout following his Roundabout Underground debut with The Language of Trees in 2008.
