Thérèse Raquin Opens Tonight
Hollywood A-lister Keira Knightley is to begin performances tonight in Roundabout Theatre Company’s Thérèse Raquin at Studio 54. She will be joined in the cast by Tony winner Gabriel Ebert, Matt Ryan, Judith Light, David Patrick Kelly, Jeff Still, Mary Wiseman, Glynis Bell, Alex Mickiweicz, Sara Topham, and Ray Virta.
Written by Helen Edmundson and directed by Evan Cabnet.
A quiet young woman with a restless spirit, Thérèse (Knightley) submits to a loveless life at the side of her weak and selfish husband played by Tony Award winner Gabriel Ebert (Matilda), and her controlling mother-in-law, played by two-time Tony Award winner Judith Light (The Assembled Parties)…until she meets his childhood friend Laurent played by Matt Ryan (“Constantine”). When their overwhelming passion spins violently out of control, they realize that love can be a dangerous game, and sometimes there is no winner.
