Oscar-nominated actress Maggie Gyllenhaal is set to make her Broadway debut in Tom Stoppard’s The Real Thing, opposite Ewan McGregor, who is also taking his first trip to the Great White Way. The Tony-winning play is about a playwright (McGregor) who leaves his wife for another woman (Gyllenhaal) and questions whether life is imitating art and if their love is the real deal. Sam Gold is directing the Roundabout Theatre Company production, which opens in limited engagement October 30 with previews starting October 2 at the American Airlines Theatre. The play originally premiered in 1982 in London and won the 1984 Tony for Best Play, but it hasn’t been produced on Broadway in more than a decade. Gyllenhaal’s upcoming screen credits include Lenny Abrahamson’s Frank with Michael Fassbender and the BBC/Sundance original series The Honourable Woman.
