  The Roundabout Theatre Company is celebrating its 50th Anniversary and this week we’re exploring its season with a series of interviews about current and shortly upcoming shows.

Matt Ryan plays Laurent in Thérèse Raquin which is currently running at Studio 54. The play is adapted by Helen Edmundson from the novel of the same title by Emile Zola. Evan Cabnet directs a cast that in addition to Matt Ryan features Tony Award winners Judith Light and Gabriel Ebert, and Keira Knightley making her Broadway debut.

Knightley plays the title character, a repressed and unhappily married woman forced to marry her first cousin, Camille, by an overbearing aunt. Camille, is sickly, cruel, and egocentric, and when the ill-matched family of three moves to Paris from a small town, Thérèse begins an affair with one of Camille's friends, Laurent.

 

Matt Ryan previously appeared on Broadway in Hamlet, playing Horatio to Jude Law’s Prince of Denmark. Ryan also starred in the short-lived by comic-fan approved NBC series, Constantine.
