Alessandro Nivola Joins Broadway Revival of ‘The Winslow Boy’

The star of "Junebug" joins Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio and Roger Rees in the Terence Rattigan drama

Alessandro Nivola is joining the Broadway revival of the classic stiff-upper-lip drama "The Winslow Boy," Roundabout Theatre Company said Wednesday. 

The star of "Laurel Canyon" and "Junebug" joins a cast that includes Oscar and Tony nominee Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio of "The Color of Money" fame and Tony Award winner and "Cheers" star Roger Rees.

Terence Rattigan's drama centers on a teenage cadet dismissed from the Royal Naval College after he's accused of stealing a postal order. It follows his family's legal challenge in early 20th century England; Nivola will play a haughty but ingenious barrister who takes the case.
