The Patrick Marber-directed revival of Travesties will begin previews at the American Airlines Theatre March 29 ahead of an April 24 opening. The show previously played the Chocolate Factory in 2016 before transferring to the West End.
In Tom Stoppard's 1974 play, set in 1917 Zurich, British military official Henry Carr recalls serving in Zurich while James Joyce, Tristan Tzara, and Vladimir Lenin were also there. He recounts a meeting between the two men, which is performed in the style of Oscar Wilde's The Importance of Being Earnest.
The show’s London star, Tom Hollander, will again play Henry Carr; he will be joined by London cast member Peter McDonald reprising the role of James Joyce, along with Seth Numrich (War Horse) as Tristan Tzara, Dan Butler (The Hothouse) as Lenin, Scarlett Strallen (She Loves Me in the West End) as Gwendolen, Sara Topham (Saint Joan) as Cecily, Opal Alladin (Hedda Gabler) as Nadya, and Patrick Kerr (The Ritz) as Bennett.
