Keira Knightley Sets Broadway Debut As Thérèse Raquin At Roundabout Theatre Company

23 October 2014 8:29 AM, PDT | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

Score a huge one for Todd Haimes, longtime artistic director of the nonprofit Roundabout empire. The company, which operates three Broadway venues, will launch its 50th anniversary season next October with Keira Knightley as Emile Zola’s adulterous heroine, in Thérèse Raquin, perennial catnip for playwrights and screenwriters. Haimes commissioned the latest adaptation, by Helen Edmundson. It was first presented in summer 2014 at the UK’s Bath Theatre Royal (Knightley was not involved). Evan Cabnet (Poor Behavior, The Model Apartment) will direct.

Story revolves around the title character, whose passionless marriage to Camille, an epicene simp, is blown up with the arrival of hot’n’handsome Laurent, resulting in sexy dark business later recycled in any number of films noirs, plays, TV miniseries, an opera and even a Broadway musical by Harry Connick Jr. (Thou Shalt Not, which didn’t).
