A Monthly Culture Matrix For the Cosmopolitan Traveler

Betrayal

Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre New York Stage

Tom Hiddleston—leaving exclamation marks on the screen as the taut, lean infiltrator in the television miniseries The Night Manager and as the horned trickster Loki in the Thor movies—returns to the stage making his Broadway debut in a revival of Harold Pinter’s Betrayal, in which an adulterous affair is shown in chronological reverse, on melancholy rewind. Charlie Cox and Zawe Ashton occupy the other two points of this romantic triangle. Imported from London, director Jamie Lloyd’s acclaimed minimalist production entraps the lovers in a purgatory of their own making. —James Wolcott
