Binoche set for B’way revival of ‘Betrayal’

'96 Oscar winner joins Schreiber, Slattery

Juliette Binoche makes her Broadway debut in a revival of Harold Pinter’s “Betrayal,” joined by Liev Schreiber and John Slattery in the Roundabout Theatre Company production.

Directed by David Leveaux, Pinter’s drama about marital infidelity previews Oct. 20 and opens Nov. 14 at the American Airlines Theatre.

Binoche won the supporting actress Oscar for the 1996 “The English Patient.” Two years ago, the French actress made her debut on the London stage in the Almeida’s production of Pirandello’s “Naked.”

‘Summer’ job

Schreiber first appeared on Broadway in the 1993 “In the Summer House.” Last fall, he played Hamlet in a Public Theater production, and has appeared in numerous pics, including the three “Scream” films.

Slattery appeared on Broadway in “Laughter on the 23rd Floor.” In addition to several legit credits, he appeared in the TV series “Maggie,” “Homefront” and “Under Cover.”

‘Real’ turn

Leveaux was most recently represented on Broadway with last season’s revival of Tom Stoppard’s “The Real Thing,” a production that originated at the Donmar Warehouse in London.

“Betrayal” was last staged on Broadway in a short-lived 1980 production directed by Peter Hall and starring Raul Julia, Blythe Danner and Roy Scheider. Hall had helmed the play 14 months earlier in London in a National Theatre presentation starring Michael Gambon, Penelope Wilton and Daniel Massey.
