Jeff Goldblum Replacing Alan Rickman in ‘Seminar’

Two-time Tony Award nominee Alan Rickman will play his final performance on Sunday, April 1 in Seminar.

Rickman, who was wonderful in the role, will hand thepart over to Academy Award and Emmy Award nominee Jeff Goldblum. Goldblum will make his return to Broadway when on Tuesday, April 3 for 8 weeks only.

The entire original cast –  including Tony Award nominee Lily Rabe, Hamish Linklater, Jerry O’Connell and Hettienne Park – will continue through Sunday, April 1 with Rickman. There’s no word if they (or any) will continue in the show.

A celebrated actor in Theater, Film and Television, Goldblum last appeared on Broadway in The Pillowman in 2005. More recently, he’s been acclaimed for starring in two productions at The Old Vic in London, Speed-the-Plow (2008) and The Prisoner of Second Avenue (2010), both opposite Kevin Spacey. His diverse film credits include some of the highest-grossing films of all-time, include Jurassic Park and Independence Day, as well as such classics as Nashville, Death Wish, The Big Chill, Annie Hall, The Life Aquatic, Igby Goes Down and The Fly. On television, he most recently starred as Detective Zach Nichols on Law & Order: Criminal Intent. He earned an Emmy nomination for his guest appearance on Will & Grace and tonight guest stars on the hit series Glee.  

The acclaimed show follows four aspiring young novelists (Rabe, Linklater, O’Connell and Park) who sign up for private writing classes with Leonard (Rickman), an international literary figure. Under his recklessly brilliant and unorthodox instruction, some thrive and others flounder, alliances are made and broken, sex is used as a weapon and hearts are unmoored. The wordplay is not the only thing that turns vicious as innocence collides with experience in this provocative new comedy.

Tickets for are $51.50-126.50, with Premium seating also available. Tickets can be purchase by visiting www.telecharge.com, calling (212) 239-6200 or going in person to The Golden Theatre box office (252 West 45th Street).
