From the producers: A tale of sex, power and betrayal, "Les Liaisons Dangereuses" begins with two ex-lovers who scheme to ruin the reputation of an innocent young aristocrat. As their game of manipulation becomes more intricate, they quickly discover that the stakes are higher than they bargained for… and their last encounter may be their most dangerous by far.
"Les Liaisons Dangereuses" comes to Broadway following a successful run at London's Donmar Warehouse. Choderlos de Laclos' novel of sex, intrigue and betrayal in pre-revolutionary France produced a scandal when it was first published in 1782. Hampton's stage adaption, which has been produced on Broadway twice previously, in 1987 and 2008, won both the Olivier and Evening Standard Awards for Best Play when it premiered in a production under the auspices of the Royal Shakespeare Company. Rourke's new production will mark the play's 30-year revival. The London production was nominated for the Olivier Award for Best Revival.
Tony and Olivier Award winner Janet McTeer ("A Doll's House," "God of Carnage") reprises her role from the The Donmar Warehouse’s critically acclaimed, sold-out production. She is joined on stage by fellow Tony winner Liev Schreiber ("Glengarry Glen Ross," TV's "Ray Donovan").
