Thérèse Raquin is scheduled to begin preview performances Oct. 1 at Studio 54. It will officially open Oct. 29.

"A quiet young woman with a restless spirit, Thérèse submits to a loveless life at the side of her weak and selfish husband played by Tony Award-winner Gabriel Ebert, and her controlling mother-in-law, played by two-time Tony Award-winner Judith Light... until she meets his childhood friend Laurent played by Matt Ryan," a synopsis said. "When their overwhelming passion spins violently out of control, they realize that love can be a dangerous game, and sometimes there is no winner."
