Craig, Weisz to star in Pinter play
Weisz will make her Broadway debut in Pinter’s 1978 study in deception, which charts an extramarital affair in reverse.
Her character, Emma, is married to Craig’s Robert, but is having an affair with Jerry, played by rising star Rafe Spall.
James Bond star Craig last appeared on Broadway in 2009 in “A Steady Rain,’’ where he received positive notices opposite Hugh Jackman even though the play itself did not.
The married movie stars will join a long list of recent film celebrities to hit Broadway, including Al Pacino, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Matthew Broderick, Jessica Chastain, Robin Williams, Scarlett Johansson, Katie Holmes and Samuel L. Jackson.
Broadway veteran Mike Nichols will direct “Betrayal,’’ which previews from Oct. 1 and opens Nov. 3 at New York’s Barrymore Theatre.
The announcement was made Friday. AP
