Alan Rickman to make Broadway return in Seminar

30th June 2011

British thespian Alan Rickman is to make his return to Broadway in Seminar, Theresa Rebeck's new play about an author who educates four aspiring writers.

Rickman, who has twice been nominated for Tony Awards, will play the lead role in the play, which will be directed by Sam Gold and will debut at the Schubert Theatre later this year.

It is Rebeck's first play since 2007's Mauritius and it focuses on how a literary legend helps to hone the writing skills of four youngsters with dreams of becoming successful novelists.

Rickman, who has enjoyed notable big screen success as a villain in Die Hard and Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, will unveil his dark side once more in the play, as he sees some pupils as more promising than others and begins to play them off against each other.

The 65-year-old actor received Tony Award nominations for Les Liaisons Dangereuses in 1987 and Private Lives in 2002, while Rebeck was a Pulitzer Prize for Drama finalist in 2003 for Omnium Gatherum.
