Roundabout Theatre Company presents an electrifying new production of Clifford Odets's riveting, bitingly funny tale of keeping your integrity in the face of success. 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's The Big Knife is about living the life you always wanted but wanting something more.
This is the first new Broadway production since The Big Knifepremiered on Broadway in 1949, directed by Lee Strasberg. Clifford Odets is currently represented on Broadway with Golden Boy playing at the Belasco Theatre.
Director Doug Hughes is Roundabout Theatre Company's Resident Director. For Roundabout, he most recently staged the world premier of Maury Yeston's musical Death Takes a Holiday and the Broadway production of Mrs. Warren's Profession starring Cherry Jones & Sally Hawkins, A Man For All Seasons starring Frank Langella, A Touch of the Poet starring Gabriel Byrne and A Naked Girl on the Appian Way starring Jill Clayburgh and Richard Thomas.
