From the show:
Betrayal, the sold-out London hit starring Tom Hiddleston, Zawe Ashton, and Charlie Cox comes to Broadway for a strictly limited engagement.
Direct from a standing-room-only hit run in London, Betrayal is the story of an illicit affair that unfolds in reverse—from the end of a marriage to the first forbidden spark. Starring Golden Globe and Olivier Award winner Tom Hiddleston (The Avengers), Zawe Ashton (Velvet Buzzsaw) and Charlie Cox (Daredevil) in their Broadway debuts, this stunning production features the daring vision of one of the UK’s most acclaimed directors.
See it if you want dialogue-driven drama re marital infidelity & friendships. No real sets or costumes: focus is words, characters, relationships.
Don't see it if you're not prepared to listen & look. Spare staging (excellent use of turntable) forces focus on what characters say & how they stand/move.
See it if You want a show that makes you think and feel. Jamie Lloyd is a brilliant director and the three leads are very strong.
Don't see it if You want to see a grand spectacle with light/fluffy plot. Set is minimal and the play focuses on dialogue. Dark humor, by no means happy.
