Star-Studded 'The Best Man' Ready For Broadway

The box office at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre (236 West 45th Street, NYC) will open tomorrow, February 14th at 10:00am for the star-studded 2012 Broadway revival of Gore Vidal’s The Best Man.

The Best Man will have its first preview performance on Tuesday, March 6th, 2012. An official opening is set for Sunday, April 1st, 2012. The strictly limited 18 week engagement is directed by Drama Desk Award winner MICHAEL WILSON (The Orphans Home Cycle Part I, II and III, Dividing The Estate).

The Best Man is coming to Broadway in an all-star theatrical event with two time Tony Award winner JAMES EARL JONES, Tony and Emmy Award winner JOHN LARROQUETTE, Emmy and Golden Globe winner CANDICE BERGEN, Emmy Award winner ERIC McCORMACK, Tony Award nominee KERRY BUTLER, Tony Award winner JEFFERSON MAYS, Drama Desk Award winner MICHAEL McKEAN and five time Tony Award winner ANGELA LANSBURY.

The Best Man is currently on sale through or by calling (212) 239-6200. Please visit for information.

A play about power, ambition, political secrets, ruthlessness and the race for the presidency, The Best Man is set at the national convention where two candidates are vying for their party’s nomination during the primary season. It’s an inside look at the dirt-digging, double-dealing, triple-crossing chicanery of presidential electioneering and what could be more fun in a presidential campaign season than these theatrical fireworks.

The design team includes Tony and Drama Desk Award winning scenic designer DEREK McLANE (33 Variations, Anything Goes), Tony and Drama Desk Award winning lighting designer KENNETH POSNER (The Coast of Utopia, Part 2 – Shipwreck), five-time Tony Award nominated costume designer ANN ROTH (The Book of Mormon), Drama Desk Award winning sound designer JOHN GROMADA (Seminar, The Orphans' Home Cycle) and projection designer PETER NIGRINI (Fela!, 9 to 5: The Musical).

The Best Man is produced by Jeffrey Richards, Jerry Frankel and Infinity Stages.
