Synopsis: 

At the height of the Great Depression, ruthless financier Gregor Antonescu's (Frank Langella) business is dangerously close to crumbling. In order to escape the wolves at his door, Gregor tracks down his estranged son Basil in the hopes of using his Greenwich Village apartment as a base to make a company-saving deal. Can this reunion help them reconcile? Or will this corrupt father use his only son as a pawn in one last power play? Man and Boy is a gripping story about family, success and what we're willing to sacrifice for both.

    The Art of Wreaking Havoc With Other People’s Money

    BEN BRANTLEY

    October 9, 2011: When Frank Langella plays good, he’s fine; but when he’s bad, he’s a wonder. Having ditched the halo he wore as the sainted Sir Thomas More in “A Man for All Seasons” in 2008, Mr. Langella — the only actor to star on Broadway as both Dracula and Richard Nixon — has stepped back into the dark side in style. And this time he’s a villain that New York audiences should really love to hate: a soulless financier who wreaks havoc with other people’s money.

    Langella riveting in cheesy 'Man and Boy'

    LINDA WINER

    October 9, 2011: More than three decades ago, Frank Langella began toying with us -- in a most serious way -- about the unnerving seductiveness of evil. Long before today's celebrity vampires, Langella heated up Broadway with a Dracula so beautiful that actresses in Victorian frocks lined up to present him their jugulars.

    Langella shines again on Broadway in 'Man and Boy'

    MARK KENNEDY

    October 9, 2011: Bernard Madoff's massive multi-decade fraud was shocking indeed, but hardly new. That sad fact is instantly recognizable in a timely new Broadway revival of Terence Rattigan's "Man and Boy" that opened Sunday at the American Airlines Theatre starring Frank Langella.

    NY Review: 'Man and Boy'

    David Sheward

    October 9, 2011: With financial crises erupting in world headlines on a daily basis, a crackling melodrama about a brilliantly devious tycoon expanding his empire with no thought to the cost to others would seem like a natural. And if that tycoon is to be played by a commanding talent like Frank Langella, such a production would be appear to be a sure bet. To be sure, the Roundabout Theatre Company's revival of Terrence Rattigan's "Man and Boy" has many attractive features, but weaknesses in the play itself cause the venture to come up slightly short of landing in the black.

    Man and Boy

    David Finkle

    October 9, 2011: When Terence Rattigan's extremely well-crafted, highly effective 1963 melodrama Man and Boy, currently getting a seriously droll revival at the Roundabout Theatre Company starring the astonishing Frank Langella as the corrupt international financial mogul Gregor Antonescu, was first introduced, the play racked up relatively few performances in either London or New York.
