Stoppard to rock Broadway

'Rock 'n' Roll' slated for next fall

Tom Stoppard’s “Rock ‘n’ Roll” will rock Broadway next season in a production helmed by Trevor Nunn slated for the fall.

Sonia Friedman (“Faith Healer”) and Boyett Ostar (“The History Boys,” “Coram Boy”) produce. Casting and theater are not yet confirmed.

Stoppard, scribe of this season’s hit trilogy “The Coast of Utopia,” let the cat out of the bag at a talkback event for “Coast” at Lincoln Center Wednesday.

“Rock,” about the friendship between a Brit academic and a Czech dissident, originated at the Royal Court Theater last year and went on to the West End, where it ends its run Feb. 25.

Helmed by Nunn, the play’s preem featured Rufus Sewell, Brian Cox and Sinead Cusack; current ensemble is headed by Dominic West, David Calder and Emma Fielding.

“Rock” may be shorter than the nine-hour epic “Coast,” but it’s just as intellectually ambitious: The show traces the twin histories of Czech politics and rock ‘n’ roll between 1968 and 1990.
