The first performance of the Broadway revival of Harold Pinter's The Homecoming, which was unable to begin previews during the stagehands strike, has been set for December 4. According to a news release, the production moved into the Cort Theatre on November 29 for a four-day tech period. The Homecoming will now open on December 16, after less than two weeks of previews. It had previously been scheduled to begin performances on November 16 and to open on December 13.
An edgy and compelling tale of lust, betrayal and seduction, The Homecoming tells the story of a dysfunctional family that welcomes the homecoming of its estranged brother and competes for the attention of his dangerously alluring wife. Directed by Daniel Sullivan, the Broadway revival stars Ian McShane, Raul Esparza, Eve Best, Michael McKean, Gareth Saxe and James Frain. The cast presented a staged reading of the play on November 25 as a benefit for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.
