Daniel Craig - Daniel Craig To Join Rachel Weisz On Broadway In Pinter's Betrayal

Harold Pinter’s semi-autobiographical tale of a complicated love triangle will, for the first time, unite Daniel Craig, Rachel Weisz and Rafe Spall on a Broadway stage.

Betrayal will be directed by none other than Mike Nichols, who also helmed the production of the huge Broadway hit Death of a Salesman, starring Philip Seymour Hoffman and Andrew Garfield. That production won Tony Awards for best revival of a play and best direction. Expectations are definitely high for this one, but avid theatre-goers will have to wait a while before they can actually catch it on stage. Betrayal will play a limited 14-week engagement at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre. It begins performances Oct. 1, with opening night set for Nov. 3. Closing date is Jan. 5, 2014.

The play is considered to be among Pinter’s best. Based to some extent on the author’s real experience, it chronicles the seven year relationship between the wife of a London publisher and his best friend. The play uses reverse chronology to explore the complex interactions of the extramarital affair. A bit of trivia – Craig and Weisz, who will play the married couple, are also married in real life. Perhaps the casting was done with this in mind. In any case, it will be interesting to see whether the actors can portray the right chemistry on stage.
