'Noises Off' to return to Broadway next winter


NEW YORK (AP) — Next winter will be more farcical on Broadway — "Noises Off" is coming back.

The Roundabout Theatre Company said Thursday it will revive Michael Frayn's Tony-nominated play about what's it like behind-the-scenes at a door-slamming play where everything that can go wrong does.

Previews will begin in January 2015 at the American Airlines Theatre. No cast was revealed but it will be directed by Jeremy Herrin.

In the show, the audience follows the misfortunes of a c-list British troupe as it rehearses, performs and tours a British sex farce called "Nothing On." It has become a favorite in stock, regional, university and amateur theaters.
