Roundabout Theatre Company's (Todd Haimes, Artistic Director) limited engagement of Christopher Hampton's The Philanthropist will play its final performance on Sunday, June 28th at 2:00 PM. Matthew Broderick, Jonathan Cake, Anna Madeley and Steven Weber star in this revival directed by David Grindley, at the American Airlines Theatre (227 West 42nd St).
The Philanthropist began previews on April 10th and opened officially on April 26th. When the limited engagement ends on June 28th, it will have played 19 preview performances and 73 regular performances.
The cast also includes Tate Ellington (John), Jennifer Mudge (Araminta), Samantha Soule (Liz).
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.
