       The Award-Winning London Stage Hit Begins Broadway Previews March 23
                 With An Official Press Opening On Sunday, April 9
                            At The Music Box Theatre

   Bill Kenwright and Marla Rubin have announced that they will present the Almeida
Theatre production of FESTEN, the hugely successful London play about a family with
a dark secret, on Broadway at the Music Box Theatre (239 W. 45 th St.), with performances
beginning Thursday, March 23. Larry Bryggman (Broadway’s Proof, Twelve Angry Men),
Michael Hayden (Hal in Lincoln Center’s Tony winning Henry IV), Ali MacGraw
(Goodbye, Columbus, The Getaway, Oscar nominee for Love Story), Julianna Margulies
(‚ER‛ and Twelve Unknowns at Lincoln Center) and Jeremy Sisto (‚Six Feet Under‛ and
acclaimed L.A. productions of Take Me Out and Dead End) have been cast in the
Broadway production. Directed by Rufus Norris (who won the Evening Standard and
Critic’s Circle awards for directing the London production), in a dramatization by David
Eldridge from the Danish 1998 film, FESTEN will have its official press opening on
Sunday, April 9.

    In FESTEN, a beloved patriarch (Larry Bryggman), surrounded by his wife (Ali
MacGraw), his daughter (Julianna Margulies), his two sons (Michael Hayden as
Christian; Jeremy Sisto as Michael) and a host of family and friends, is celebrating his
60th birthday at his country home. This promises to be a very special occasion, but as
the evening progresses, the man’s eldest son, Christian, feels compelled to break the
silence surrounding a family secret. Standing to propose a toast, he offers his father -
much to the delight of the guests - an amusing yet simple choice. And so the games
begin. Revelations and accusations tumble across the dinner table, paving the way for a
celebration that no one will ever forget.
   In London, FESTEN received a rapturous reception from critics and audiences alike.
Michael Billington in the Guardian called FESTEN, ‚a landmark play, as overwhelming
as anything on the London stage.‛ Susannah Clapp in the Observer said that the play
was ‚dramatic dynamite, one of the most outstanding theatrical occasions of the year.‛
Nicholas de Jongh in the Evening Standard said that FESTEN, ‚brings serious glory to
the West End.‛ Paul Taylor in the Independent called it, ‚phenomenally brilliant, and
an embodiment of what theatre should be.‛ And Victoria Segal of the London Sunday
Times said, ‚FESTEN is a thrilling modern tragedy – electrifying, shocking and
profoundly moving. It crackles with pure theatrical energy.‛

   In addition to Mr. Bryggman, Mr. Hayden, Ms. MacGraw, Ms. Margulies and Mr.
Sisto, the cast of FESTEN will feature John Carter, Diane Davis, Keith Davis, David
Patrick Kelly, Stephen Kunken, Carrie Preston, Christopher Evan Welch and C.J. Wilson.

reassemble in New York to mount the play on Broadway. FESTEN features set design
by Ian MacNeil (Billy Elliot, The Musical, An Inspector Calls), costume design by Joan
Wadge, lighting by Jean Kalman, original music by Orlando Gough and sound design
by Paul Arditti. As well as being nominated for five Laurence Olivier Awards, Rufus
Norris won the Evening Standard and Critic’s Circle Awards for Best Director. Ian
MacNeil, Jean Kalman and Paul Arditti won the Evening Standard Award for Best
