Craig, Weisz announce plans to star in ‘Betrayal’ on Broadway
NEW YORK (AP) — Real-life husband and wife Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz are to play an adulterous stage couple in a Broadway production of Harold Pinter’s “Betrayal.”
Weisz will make her Broadway debut in Pinter’s 1978 study in deception, which charts an extramarital affair in reverse.
Her character, Emma, is married to Craig’s Robert, but is having an affair with Jerry, played by rising star Rafe Spall.
James Bond star Craig last appeared on Broadway in 2009 in “A Steady Rain,” where he received positive notices opposite Hugh Jackman even though the play itself did not.
Craig has reportedly signed on for at least two more Bond films following “Skyfall,” which was the first Bond film to rake in more than $1 billion in revenue. It also won two Oscars including one for Adele’s theme song.
Broadway veteran Mike Nichols will direct “Betrayal,” which previews from Oct. 1 and opens Nov. 3 at New York’s Barrymore Theatre. The announcement was made Friday.
Craig and Weisz, who is currently starring in “Oz: The Great and Powerful,” worked together before in the horror film “Dream House,” which came out in 2011.
