"A thrill!"

David Cote, time out new york

Roundabout Theatre Company presents Clifford Odets’s classic tale about keeping your integrity in the face of success. This electrifying new production stars Emmy® Award winner and Tony Award® nominee Bobby Cannavale (Glengarry Glen Ross, “Boardwalk Empire”) along with Richard Kind (“Spin City”), who has won the Drama Desk Award and is now a Tony nominee for his performance. Tony winner Doug Hughes (Roundabout’s Mrs. Warren’s ProfessionDoubt) directs.

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.
