The Height of Storm (in French "Avant de s'envoler") by Florian Zeller  - a West End hit in 2018 - is at Manhattan Theater Club (MTC), New York, opening on September 10.

“A deeply moving new play that takes us to the edge of what it is to love.” - The Times of London

 Two of the greatest actors of their generation come together in a story of a shared life, and all of its complexities.   For 50 years, the lives of André and Madeleine have been filled with the everyday pleasures and unfathomable mysteries of an enduring marriage, until suddenly their life together begins to unravel, and this loving relationship is faced with the inevitability of change.   

Two-time Olivier and Tony winner Jonathan Pryce (“Game of Thrones”, Miss Saigon) joins three-time Olivier Award winner Eileen Atkins (“The Crown”, Doubt) to bring the acclaimed West End sensation by Florian Zeller to Broadway. 

Translated by Christopher Hampton (MTC’s The Father), Jonathan Kent (Long Day’s Journey into Night) directs this production. Before London, the play in France premiered in 2016 with actors Robert Hirsh and Isabelle Sadoyan.
