Get ready to sleep on the sidewalk for tickets to the Mike Nichols-directed “Betrayal” on Broadway. The play starring married couple Daniel Craig (aka James Bond) and Rachel Weisz, with Rafe Spall, is coming to Broadway this fall. But producers are putting tickets on sale for one week only, from July 29 to August 4th. Then the box office goes dark until September 3rd.
Publicist Chris Boneau says: “The Barrymore box office had been originally scheduled to open on September 3, but based on advance ticket sales, the producers of BETRAYAL determined that the production could be sold out by that point. This special one week early on-sale will ensure that loyal theatergoers who wish to purchase their tickets at the box office will have the ability to do so via their preferred method.”
When Broadway shows have big big stars, there’s always a lot of pandemonium on the street at night after the performance. “Betrayal” starts previews on October 1st and opening night is October 27th. The run is only until January 5, 2014 with no likely extensions. West 47t St. will never be the same, I’m afraid, and certainly not passable again until January 6th!
