"Professor Snape" back on Broadway

The marvelous English actor Alan Rickman, best known to the world as Professor Snape in the "Harry Potter" movies, will be back on Broadway for the first time in nine years this fall. He will play another teacher in "Seminar," a new biting comedy written by prolific dramatist Theresa Rebeck.

According to Playbill.com, Rickman will portray a brilliant and unpredictable international literary legend leading a private seminar for four young writers. "Sex is used as a weapon, alliances are made and broken, and it's not just the wordplay that turns vicious..."

Rickman's 1987 performance in "Les Liaisons Dangereuses," another play of sexual treachery, is one of my most delicious Broadway experiences. Here is the entire Playbill.com story.
