Will Frears Director Of 'Misery' On Broadway

'Misery' on Broadway logo

  Following a near-fatal car accident, a world-famous novelist finds himself in a strange house being nursed back to health by his doting, self-proclaimed Number One Fan. But as her love for his work turns to dangerous obsession, he realizes he must plot his greatest story yet: how to escape with his life.

Stephen King’s novel, Misery, was adapted for the screen in 1990 directed by Rob Reiner and starring James Caan as Paul Sheldon and Kathy Bates as Annie Wilkes in an Academy Award and Golden Globe hobbling -- ahem, winning -- performance.

Misery is back in a new Broadway adaptation written by two-time Academy Award winner William Goldman with action film star Bruce Willis making his Broadway debut as Paul Sheldon and Laurie Metcalf picking up Annie Wilke’s bottles of Novril ... and sledgehammer.

Will Frears directs the production which is running at the Broadhurst Theatre in New York City through February 14th.
