The Olivier-winning play originally premiered in London in 2020 at the Wyndham Theatre, reuniting Stoppard, Marber, and producer Sonia Friedman for the first time since collaborating on Travesties in 2017. Stoppard has previously had 18 plays staged on Broadway, beginning with his famous reimagining Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead, which opened 55 years ago. Since then, his work has won four Tony Awards for Best Play.
