By Krissie Fullerton
The Roundabout Theatre Company's Broadway revival of Terence Rattigan's classic drama about family loyalty, The Winslow Boy, starring Tony Award winner Roger Rees and Academy Award nominee Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio, began previews Sept. 20 at the American Airlines Theatre.
Rees (Peter and the Starcatcher, Nicholas Nickleby) stars as Arthur Winslow, opposite Tony and Academy Award nominee Mastrantonio (Man of La Mancha) as Grace Winslow.
The cast also features Tony Award nominee Michael Cumptsy (End of the Rainbow, Copenhagen) as Desmond Curry, Charlotte Parry (Coram Boy) as Catherine Winslow, Alessandro Nivola (The Elephant Man) as Sir Robert Morton, Zachary Booth (The Mound Builders) as Dickie Winslow, Spencer Davis Milford (Billy Elliot) in his Broadway debut as Ronnie Winslow, Chandler Williams (In the Next Room...) as John Watherstone, Meredith Forlenza (Pal Joey) as Miss Barnes, Stephen Pilkington (One Man, Two Guvnors) as Fred and Henny Russell (The Other Place) as Violet.
Here's how it's billed: "A moving exploration of family devotion, The Winslow Boy beautifully illustrates the costs of unconditional love and the rewards that make the effort priceless. When Ronnie Winslow is expelled from school for stealing, it has a resounding effect on the entire family. His father Arthur must pool his resources to hire a lawyer for the boy’s defense. His brother Dickie begrudgingly drops out of college and gets a banking job to help with the legal costs. And the fallout from this unexpected predicament puts his sister Catherine's engagement in jeopardy. Though they are determined to defend Ronnie, will the family’s sacrifices be enough to clear his reputation and the Winslow name?"
