LAST CHANCE TO SEE RYLANCE, HYDE PIERCE AND LUMLEY IN LA BÊTE

PRIOR TO BROADWAY TRANSFER

Matthew Warchus’ production of David Hirson’s La Bête, starring Mark Rylance, David Hyde Pierce and Joanna Lumley, will complete its run as scheduled at the Comedy Theatre on 4 September, transferring immediately to the Music Box Theatre on Broadway with previews from 23 September and opening on 14 October. 

When the Princess invites street clown Valere to inject some bawdy fun and mischief into her staid acting troupe, she anticipates an exciting creative combination. But the troupe's leader, Elomire, is an elitist and fervent lover of high-brow theatre who clashes with Valere - a gaudy comic and a fervent lover of ... well, himself.  So begins a gloriously witty and wildly hilarious battle of art and egos.

The full cast for the London and New York productions comprises Mark Rylance (Valere), David Hyde Pierce (Elomire) Joanna Lumley (The Princess), Stephen Ouimette (Bejart), Lisa Joyce (Marquise-Therese Du Parc), Greta Lee (Dorine), Robert Lonsdale (Rene Du Parc), Michael Milligan (De Brie), Liza Sadovy (Catherine De Brie) and Sally Wingert (Madeleine Bejart).

La Bête is produced in London and New York by Sonia Friedman Productions & Scott Landis, Roger Berlind, Robert G. Bartner/Norman Tulchin, Bob Boyett/Tim Levy, Roy Furman, Max Cooper, Dan Frishwasser, Bud Martin, Philip Morgaman/Frankie J.Grande, Stephanie P.McClelland/Hagemann-Rosenthal in association with 1001 Nights, Richard Winkler.
