A Man For Broadway's 2008-09 Season Opens Tonight

A Man For Broadway's 2008-09 Season Opens Tonight

This evening, the very first Broadway revival of Robert Bolt's A Man For All Seasons opens at the Roundabout Theatre Company's American Airlines Theatre.

Helmed by Doug Hughes, the revival stars three-time Tony Award winner Frank Langella as Sir Thomas More. Langella faces Patrick Page as King Henry VIII.

The late, great Paul Scofield not only earned a Tony Award for his portrayal of More in the original 1961 Broadway play, but he also won an Academy Award in the Best Picture of 1966.

Will critics see this as a play for all ages (epochal periods, that is)? Find out tomorrow as I provide my critics' capsule.

This is Steve On Broadway (SOB).
