MISERY is headed to Broadway! Warner Bros. Theatrical Ventures announced today that a new stage adaptation of Stephen King's acclaimed novel Misery will be headed to Broadway in the fall of 2015. The two leads of the upcoming play have already been announced as Bruce Willis (Paul) and Elizabeth Marvel (Annie).
The play is being written by William Goldman, who wrote the screenplay for the film adaptation of Misery.
Mark Kaufman, the producer of the upcoming show, made this statement about the production:
"...MISERY is an outstanding psychological thriller and we have been working closely with William Goldman and Will Frears to develop this play for Broadway. Bruce Willis, who is making his Broadway debut, and Elizabeth Marvel are two great actors who are absolutely perfect to play these characters. I expect this production will be a suspenseful and exciting night of theatre on Broadway."
The show is currently planned as a "strictly limited engagement" for the fall of 2015.
