The Real Thing Reviews

A thoroughly excellent and tuneful version of Tom Stoppard's brilliant play about love and fidelity. If this play is almost 30 years old, its age wasn't visible.
Mark Kennedy, Associated Press
Ewan McGregor makes an impressive Broadway debut.
Marilyn Stasio, Variety
Maggie Gyllenhaal, making a sensational Broadway debut as Annie, pulls off the especially difficult trick of wrangling all the messy contradictions of her character without losing her glowy sexiness for a minute.
Jesse Green, Vulture


Two-time Golden Globe® nominee Ewan McGregor is Henry, a playwright not so happily married to Charlotte (Tony Award® winner Cynthia Nixon), the lead actress in his play about a marriage on the verge of collapse. When Henry’s affair with their friend Annie (Academy Award® nominee Maggie Gyllenhaal) threatens to destroy his own marriage, he discovers that life has started imitating art. After Annie leaves her husband so she and Henry can begin a new life together, he can’t help but wonder whether their love is fiction or the real thing.

Tom Stoppard's (The Coast of Utopia) Tony Award®-winning play returns to Broadway in Roundabout Theatre Company’s stirring and sensual production directed by Sam Gold (The Realistic Joneses). Delectably witty and deeply affecting, THE REAL THING takes a daring glimpse at relationships, fidelity, and the passions that often blur our perception of love.
