Patrick Marber will direct the limited engagement, opening in the spring.

Broadway is ready for Travesties.

After its hit, sold-out productions at London’s Menier Chocolate Factory and the West End, a revival of Tom Stoppard’s Tony-winning play Travesties will bow on Broadway in the spring.

Patrick Marber will again direct the staging, with Tom Hollander (The Night Manager, Doctor Thorne) reprising his role as Henry Carr. The full cast and creative team will be announced at a later date.

Previews begin on March 29 ahead of an April 24 opening at the American Airlines Theatre. The limited engagement is set to run through June 17.

Travesties centers on Henry Carr, an elderly man who reminisces about Zurich in 1917 during the First World War. His memories include interactions with James Joyce when he was writing Ulysses, Tristan Tzara during the rise of Dada, and Lenin ahead of the Russian Revolution.

The Broadway revival is produced by Roundabout Theatre Company, Chocolate Factory Productions and Sonia Friedman Productions.
