The Big Knife

Broadway Play - Drama — 

 

Roundabout Theatre Company presents an electrifying new production of Clifford Odets’s classic tale about keeping your integrity in the face of success, starring Emmy® Award–winner and Tony Award®–nominee Bobby Cannavale (Glengarry Glen Ross, ‘Boardwalk Empire’), and directed by Tony Award–winner Doug Hughes (Roundabout’s Mrs. Warren’s Profession, Doubt).


In the golden age of Hollywood cinema, actors may have all the glory, but studio execs have all the power. The Hoff-Federated studio has had its most successful star, Charlie Castle, over a barrel ever since it helped cover up a mistake that could have ended his career. When a woman with insider knowledge threatens to come forward, the studio heads will stop at nothing to protect Charlie’s secret... but how far is he willing to go before he quits the movie business for good?
 
Set in a glossy world of rumor mills and rocky friendships, The Big Knife is a riveting, bitingly funny look at how challenging it can be to stay true to yourself—when everyone expects you to play a part.
