Roundabout’s primed for ‘Appian’ preem

Lloyd Webber's 'Woman' to open on B'way Nov. 17

The Roundabout Theater Company is breaking from its revival mandate at the American Airlines Theater to stage the New York premiere of Richard Greenberg’s “A Naked Girl on the Appian Way.”

Doug Hughes, Tony winner for directing “Doubt,” helms the Greenberg comedy about a successful cookbook author and her husband, whose lives are upended when their two children return from European travels.

The Roundabout’s American Airlines Theater has been the scene of several revivals since its opening under the nonprofit company’s banner in 2000. The only other New York premiere work there to date has been Heather McDonald’s “An Almost Holy Picture,” starring Kevin Bacon, in 2002.

“A Naked Girl on the Appian Way” was commissioned by South Coast Rep, where it preemed in April. Direct to Broadway

Andrew Lloyd Webber’s new one, “The Woman in White,” will transfer directly from the West End to Broadway, bypassing its announced fall-winter dates at Chi’s LaSalle Bank Theater.

The musical thriller is now skedded to open Nov. 17 at Gotham’s Marquis Theater. A spring 2006 preem had previously been announced. The production follows “La Cage aux Folles,” which closes June 26 at the Marquis.

“The Woman in White” features music by Lloyd Webber, lyrics by David Zippel and a book by Charlotte Jones. Trevor Nunn directs.
