Craig, Weisz to star in ‘Betrayal’ on Broadway

NEW YORK (AP) — Real-life husband and wife Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz are to play an adulterous stage couple in a Broadway production of Harold Pinter’s “Betrayal.”

Weisz will make her Broadway debut in Pinter’s 1978 study in deception, which charts an extramarital affair in reverse.

Her character, Emma, is married to Craig’s Robert, but is having an affair with Jerry, played by rising star Rafe Spall.

James Bond star Craig last appeared on Broadway in 2009 in “A Steady Rain.”

Broadway veteran Mike Nichols will direct the production, which previews from Oct. 1 and opens Nov. 3 at New York’s Barrymore Theatre. The announcement was made Friday.
