Tickets are now on sale to see Ewan McGregor, Maggie Gyllenhaal and Tony winner Cynthia Nixon in the new Roundabout Theatre Company revival of Tom Stoppard's The Real Thing. Directed by Sam Gold, the production will begin performances on October 2 and open officially on October 30 at the American Airlines Theatre.

The Real Thing tells the story of Henry (McGregor), a successful playwright who is unhappily married to Charlotte (Nixon), the lead actress in his current play about a marriage on the verge of collapse. When Henry’s affair with their friend Annie (Gyllenhaal) threatens to destroy his own marriage, he discovers that life has started imitating art. After Annie leaves her husband so she and Henry can begin a new life together, he can’t help but wonder whether their love is fiction or the real thing.

The original 1984 Broadway production won five Tony Awards including Best Play. The Real Thing was revived in 2000 and won three Tonys, including Best Revival of a Play.
