Easton, Prince join upcoming B'way revival of British sex farce

Richard Easton and Faith Prince will join Patti LuPone and Peter Gal-lagher in the upcoming Broadway revival of “Noises Off” by Michael Frayn.

Easton and Prince were Tony-nominated this past legit season for their turns in, respectively, “The Inven-tion of Love” and “Bells Are Ringing,” with Easton taking home the actor prize.

Frayn’s much-traveled farce opens Nov. 1 at the Brooks Atkinson Theater, the site of its Broadway premiere on Dec. 12, 1983. The playwright, who won a Tony two seasons ago for his drama “Copenhagen,” reportedly has revised the text from its 1982 world premiere in London.

British sex farce

Over its nearly two-decade history, “Noises Off” has been a favorite of regional and amateur theaters across the country, even though there’s no American equivalent for the kind of British sex farce satirized here: A provincial touring company performs, with disastrous results, a trifle called “Nothing On.”

In London, Jeremy Sams’ recent production of “Noises Off” opened at the Royal National Theater in Septem-ber 2000 and transferred in May to the West End, with Lynn Redgrave star-ring. Sams also directs the Broadway revival.

Rounding out the Gotham cast are Edward Hibbert, Katie Finneran, T.R. Knight, Thomas McCarthy and Robin Weigert.

The 1983 Broadway production featured Brian Murray, Dorothy Loudon, Victor Garber, Douglas Seale, Deborah Rush, Linda Thorson, Jim Piddock and Amy Wright, with Mi-chael Blakemore directing.

“Noises Off” is being produced in New York by the Ambassador Theater Group, Act Prods., Waxman/Williams, USA Ostar Theatricals and Neder-lander Prods.

Previews begin Oct. 16.
