Radiohead's Thom Yorke To Compose For Broadway's Old Times


Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke will compose original music for the upcoming revival of Old Times, the Roundabout Theatre Company has announced.

The remake of the 1971 stars Clive Owen, Kelly Reilly and Eve Best and revolves around a husband and wife preparing for the visit of her female roommate from 20 years earlier, whom the husband claims never to have met.

But with the guest's arrival, shared and conflicting recollections slowly build into a quiet battle for power. It will be directed by Douglas Hodge.

"It's been a pleasure working with Doug on my first stage production," says Yorke of the gig. "I've enjoyed exploring through music the script's themes of love and memory as well as Pinter's rhythms, twists and turns."

Old Times marks the Broadway debut of both Yorke and Owen.
