Three-time Tony Award winner Frank Langella returns to the stage in The Father, an all new Broadway production of the play which captivated Paris and London. Winner of the Molière Award, France's most prestigious honor for a new work of theater, and The Guardian’s pick for Best Play of the Year.

Critics from London’s Sunday Times, Daily Telegraph, Times, The Guardian, The Mail on Sunday, The Observer, The Daily Mail, The Sunday Telegraph, Evening Standard, and The Financial Times all gave the play five stars. The Guardian called Zeller’s work “an astonishingly unguarded play about the cruelties of love and the limits of patience.” The Evening Standard called The Father “perfectly measured and quietly devastating.”

Now 80 years old, André (Frank Langella) was once a tap dancer. He lives with his daughter Anne (Kathryn Erbe from “Law and Order, Criminal Intent") and her husband Antoine. Or was he an engineer whose daughter Anne lives in London with her new lover, Pierre? The thing is, he is still wearing his pajamas, and he can’t find his watch. He is starting to wonder if he’s losing control.
