Travesties

CRITIC'S PICK. “A ridiculously entertaining and exultant joy ride!”The New York Times

“An uproarious work of art. Simply let the pleasure of the show wash over you."Newsday

“Dazzingly extravagant and wonderfully witty”Variety

Now nominated for FOUR TONY® AWARDS including Best Revival of a Play, Best Actor in a Play (Tom Hollander), Best Director of a Play (Patrick Marber) and Best Sound Design of a Play (Adam Cork).

Roundabout’s dazzling new production of Travesties, Tom Stoppard’s Tony Award-winning Best Play, has arrived—and The New York Times says it’s “ridiculously entertaining.” An artist, a writer and a revolutionary collide in this “giddy, head-spinning triumph” (Entertainment Weekly), a kaleidoscopic thrill-ride through the worlds of art and revolution in 1917 Switzerland…and in the maze of one man’s memory.

This “knock-the-wind-out-of-you magnificent revival” (New York Magazine) is “an uproarious work of art, impeccably directed by Patrick Marber” (Newsday). 2017 Olivier nominee Tom Hollander leads the cast, and he is "marvelous” (Time Out New York).

Travesties. New York Stage Review says it’s “possibly the only perfect production now occupying a Broadway theater. Get there fast.”
