Cheating on James Bond? Say it isn’t so. Daniel Craig and wife Rachel Weisz will star on Broadway this fall in a revival of Harold Pinter’s “Betrayal,” to be directed by 10-time Tony winner Mike Nichols.
In the play, which originally premiered in 1978 in London, Emma (Weisz) is married to Robert (Craig), a publisher, but she has long had an affair with Jerry (Rafe Spall, of “Life of Pi”), a literary agent and Robert’s best friend.
“Betrayal” will begin performances on Oct. 1 at the Barrymore Theatre, ahead of a Nov. 3 opening. This one is a strictly limited engagement, for 14 weeks through Jan. 5.
It’s the “Skyfall” star’s first return to Broadway since starring opposite Hugh Jackman in 2009’s “A Steady Rain.” Wiesz, an Oscar winner for “The Constant Gardner” in 2005, will be making her Broadway debut.
She’s appeared Off-Broadway, and won the 2010 Olivier Award for her performance as Blanche DuBois in a West End revival of “A Streetcar Named Desire.”
