Betrayal on Broadway Tickets
Hot on the heels of a sold-out West End run, Tom Hiddleston makes his Broadway debut in director Jamie Lloyd’s acclaimed revival of Betrayal. Catch this intimate and moving tale of a seven-year affair in reverse at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre from August 14.
Betrayal is the story of an affair between gallery owner Emma and her husband’s best friend Jerry. Notable for its reverse chronology, the play opens with a farewell between lovers and closes with the drunken sparks of affection seven years prior. Full of various acts of betrayal, it features Pinter’s trademark sparse dialogue, heavy pauses and cutting humour.
Tom Hiddleston plays cuckolded husband Robert, with Zawe Ashton as Emma and Charlie Cox as Jerry. All three mark their Broadway debuts with Betrayal.
Hiddleston was last seen on stage in Hamlet (2017) and won an Olivier Award for Cymbeline (2007). He has received wide acclaim as Loki in the Thor movies and won a Golden Globe for The Night Manager.
Zawe Ashton is best recognized as Vod in Fresh Meat, and previously worked with Jamie Lloyd on The Maids in the West End. She most recently appeared in art-horror film Velvet Buzzsaw.
Charlie Cox was the star of Marvel’s Daredevil series and will be familiar to US audiences for Boardwalk Empire. Like Ashton, he’s no stranger to collaboration with Jamie Lloyd, having acted in his revival of The Lover & The Collection.
Betrayal is produced by director Jamie Lloyd’s company and the Ambassador Theatre Group. Lloyd has an impressive catalogue of work, with his Pinter at the Pinter season bringing together actors and directors to celebrate the writer's one-act plays.
Sure to be an affecting and phenomenally acted take on Pinter’s classic, Betrayal runs at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre from August 14, with an opening night on September 5.
