The Philanthropist's star Matthew Broderick will appear on NBC's "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" on Monday, June 15th at 12:35AM on channel 4.
Roundabout Theatre Company (Todd Haimes, Artistic Director) presents a new Broadway production of The Philanthropist starring Matthew Broderick, Jonathan Cake, Anna Madeley and Steven Weber. The Philanthropist, by Christopher Hampton, is directed by David Grindley at the American Airlines Theatre (227 West 42nd Street).
The cast also includes Tate Ellington, Jennifer Mudge and Samantha Soule.
The Philanthropist is playing a limited engagement through June 28th, 2009.
The design team includes Tim Shortall (Sets), Tobin Ost (Costumes), Rick Fisher (Lights) and Gregory Clarke (Sound).
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.
Tickets are available by calling Roundabout Ticket Services at (212)719-1300, online at www.roundabouttheatre.org or at the American Airlines Box Office (227 West 42nd Street).
The Philanthropist plays Tuesday through Saturday evenings at 8:00 p.m. with Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday matinees at 2:00 p.m.
