Frank Langella Sets Broadway Return In ‘The Father’ (But Not That ‘Father’).

Three-time Tony Award winner Frank Langella will be back on Broadway next spring in the title role of “The Father,” a play by Florian Zeller that has earned acclaim in Europe. Manhattan Theater Club on Tuesday added the production, which will be directed by Doug Hughes, to its season. “The Father” will begin previews March 22 and open April 12 at the Samuel J. The three-time Tony winner and Oscar nominee will headline Florian Zeller’s The Father in a translation by two-time Tony and Oscar winner Christopher Hampton. A British production with another cast earned strong reviews — a critic for The Telegraph described it last year as “one of the most acute, absorbing and distressing portraits of dementia I’ve ever seen” — and it is about to reopen in the West End.

The Guardian called it “an astonishingly unguarded play about the cruelties of love and the limits of patience.” The Telegraph said its portrayal of dementia is “acute, absorbing and distressing.” A limited-run West End transfer will be presented this fall at London’s Wyndham’s Theatre by Theatre Royal Bath Productions and the Tricycle Theatre, following debut runs at the Ustinov Studio in Bath and the Tricycle Theatre in London. Langella’s TV and film resume includes Superman Returns, Robert & Frank and The Americans, and he was recently tapped for the screen adaptation of the Bryan Cranston-led All the Way.
