The River, playing at Circle in the Square Theatre, is written by Jez Butterworth and directed by Ian Rickson. Among those at the New York premiere were East Hampton’s Jerry and Jessica Seinfeld.

The synopsis states, “On a moonless evening, a man brings his new girlfriend to a remote cabin for a night of trout-fishing. But before the night is over, it becomes clear that nothing is as it seems… and as memory collides with desire, the truth becomes the most elusive catch of all.”

Jackson’s past Broadway credits include Steady Rain, Hugh Jackman, Back on Broadway and The Boy from Oz.

Awesome opening night @TheRiverPlay. Thank you for your support!!!
