‘Brief Encounter’ heads to Broadway

Roundabout sets fall stint at Studio 54

The hit Brit staging of “Brief Encounter” gets its much-discussed Broadway run from the Roundabout Theater Company, with a fall stint in the Roundabout’s Studio 54.

The Kneehigh Theater production, adapted and helmed by Emma Rice, generated Main Stem transfer talk in the wake of a crowd-attracting run at St. Ann’s Warehouse earlier this year. Gotham nonprofit Roundabout presents the show in association with David Pugh, Dafydd Rogers and Cineworld.

Multimedia production is an adaptation of the 1945 Noel Coward-penned movie (and the 1936 one-act on which it’s based) about a love affair between a buttoned-up man and woman who meet at a train station. After a U.K. tour, the show played a 2008 London run at an old cinema, and also has played engagements at San Francisco’s ACT and at the Guthrie in Minneapolis.

Earlier this year, Roundabout presented another Coward play, “Present Laughter,” in a production that starred Victor Garber.

Cast for the upcoming Rialto engagement of “Brief Encounter” remains to be announced.

Show begins Gotham previews Sept. 10 ahead of a Sept. 28 run that will end Dec. 5.
