Stoppard and Margulies plays Broadway-bound

NEW YORK (AP) — Two celebrated stage works about marriages in crisis by Tom Stoppard and Donald Margulies are heading to Broadway.

The Roundabout Theatre Company said Monday that Margulies' Pulitzer Prize-winning play "Dinner with Friends" will be part of its 2013-2014 theatrical season, as will a revival of Tom Stoppard's Tony Award winning play "The Real Thing."

Margulies' play, an unsettling drama about how the breakup of one couple affects another, will be directed by Tony Award nominee Pam MacKinnon.

Stoppard's play, which debuted on Broadway in 1983 and was revived in 2000, examines how art imitates life. The revival will be directed by Sam Gold.

Casting, dates and theaters will be announced later.
