Roundabout Adds ‘Winslow Boy’ to 2013-14 B’way Season

Roger Rees will topline the fall revival; Bekah Brunstetter play also added to slate

Roger Rees will topline a Broadway revival of Terence Rattigan’s play “The Winslow Boy” as part of the 2013-14 Broadway season at the Roundabout Theater Company, which also has added a new play by Bekah Brunstetter to its Off Broadway lineup.

Lindsay Posner helms “Winslow Boy” fresh off the success of his staging of the 1946 play at London’s Old Vic, where the show is currently wrapping up its run. That production, which stars Henry Goodman in the part to be played Stateside by Rees, ends its limited engagement May 25.

Rees, nominated last year for a Tony for his co-direction of “Peter and the Starcatcher,” has a string of Broadway credits that includes “The Addams Family,” “Indiscretions” and “The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby,” for which he snagged a 1982 thesping Tony.

Exact dates for “Winslow Boy” have not yet been set, but it will play in the fall at the American Airlines Theater. A previously announced revival of “The Philadelphia Story” has been postponed, according to Roundabout reps.

Also added to the Roundabout docket is “Cutie and Bear,” the latest from Brunstetter (“Oohrah!”) about a married man and a financially struggling young woman who begin a relationship that becomes increasingly complicated. Evan Cabnet (“The Perfomers”) directs. “Cutie and Bear” will play the Roundabout’s Off Broadway stage in the spring.

The two productions join a 2013-14 Roundabout roster that also includes revivals of “The Real Thing” and “Dinner with Friends” as well as a return engagement of “Bad Jews,” which initially bowed at the Roundabout in a well-received production last year.
