‘Enron’ banks on Broadhurst

Prebble's hit play set for Broadway bow in April

The Broadway transfer of Lucy Prebble’s “Enron” has secured a home, locking down an April 27 opening at the Broadhurst Theater.

Directed by Rupert Goold, the play premiered over the summer at the Minerva Theater Chichester before a sell-out engagement at London’s Royal Court Theater. It moves to a West End run at the Noel Coward Theater in January.

Goold was last represented on Broadway by “Macbeth” with Patrick Stewart, a staging that also began at Chichester before its London and Broadway successes.

Prebble’s play explores the infamous 1990s financial scandal in light of the world’s current economic turmoil.

The lead roles of Jeffrey Skilling and Ken Lay are being played in the U.K. by Samuel West and Tim Pigott-Smith, respectively. However, no casting has been announced for the Rialto run, which begins previews April 8.

Producers on Broadway are Jeffrey Richards, Jerry Frankel, Matthew Byam Shaw, Act Prods., Caro Newling for Neal St. Prods. and the Shubert Org.
