The Deal

Misery



World-famous novelist Paul Sheldon has finally freed himself from the millstone of his most popular creation, Victorian-era heroine Misery Chastaine, by killing her off in his latest novel, Misery’s Child. On his way home in a snowstorm, he suffers a near-fatal car accident and wakes up (with shattered legs) in the care of nurse and self-proclaimed Number One Fan, Annie Wilkes. She’s overjoyed to nurture the creator of her favorite character back to health…until she reads the new novel. That’s when Annie’s doting devotion turns into sadistic terror, as she imprisons (and poisons, and hobbles, and tortures) Paul until he rewrites his wrongs and brings Misery back to life—or dies trying.

After Rob Reiner’s 1990 film adaptation made audiences swear off reading novels ever again, Broadway’s new take on Misery has crowds equally terrified thanks to a tension-ratcheting script and a talented duo onstage. Making his Broadway debut, two-time Emmy and Golden Globe winner Bruce Willis “shines in this stylish thrill ride” (Newsday) as bed-ridden author Paul Sheldon, delivering a wry performance that the New York Post says will “really surprise you.” Likewise, three-time Emmy winner and Steppenwolf Theater veteran Laurie Metcalf is “diabolically marvelous” (The Hollywood Reporter) as Annie. Newsday says “she’s scarily intense and mad as a homicidal hatter.” Director Will Frears orchestrates Misery’s claustrophobic terror aided by the cunning wordplay of this adaptation from the legendary William Goldman, who penned the 1990 film version along with works such as Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid and The Princess Bride.
