‘Enron’ plans for Broadway, West End

Show sold out previous run at London's Royal Court

West End and Broadway plans are firming up for “Enron,” the Brit hit that recently ended its world preem run at the Chichester Festival Theater.

A legit take on the Enron Corp. financial scandal, the new play by Lucy Prebble will go to the West End this winter and hit Broadway in April, according to an announcement from the three co-producing orgs: Headlong Theater, the Royal Court and Chichester.

Show already has sold out its previously skedded fall run at London’s Royal Court, where the production plays Sept. 17-Nov. 7.

The Broadway stint for “Enron” marks a return to the Rialto for helmer Rupert Goold, whose 2007 Chichester staging of “Macbeth,” toplined by Patrick Stewart, also played the West End and Gotham.

No casting for the interdisciplinary stage work has been announced. The Chichester incarnation stars Samuel West as Jeffrey Skilling.

Full details about the Broadway run, including venue, remain to be confirmed.
