Book now for best of 2017
Now is the time to get booking for top theatre in 2017. The Royal Court Theatre have just announced their 2017 season and tickets go on sale to the public this Friday 4th November at 10am here (if you’re a friend of the Royal Court, you can buy tickets already). We’ve got our eye on Sam Mendes making his debut at the Royal Court directing Jez Butterworth’s new play, The Ferryman (April 24 – May 20 2017) and Simon McBurney directing The Kid Stays in the Picture, based on the life of Robert Evans (March 7 – April 8 2017).
Next up, David Tennant is starring as Don Juan in Patrick Marber’s play (that he originally wrote for Rhys Ifans at the Donmar in 2006). Marber relocates Moliere’s tragic and anarchic 1665 play to modern day Soho. The play will be on from 17th March – 10th June at the Wyndham’s Theatre in the West End and you can book tickets here.
Marber also directed Travesties (see our previous review here) starring Tom Hollander which, after it’s sold out run at the Menier Chocolate Factory this autumn, is transferring to the Apollo Theatre. Running from 3rd February to 29th April, you can book tickets here.
And The Old Vic has announced their new plays for next year and booking opened to the public yesterday. Daniel Radcliffe stars in Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead directed by it’s author, Tom Stoppard (February 25 – April 29 2017). Conor McPherson directs his new work about the American Great Depression with songs by Bob Dylan in Girl From the North Country (July 12 – October 7 2017) and from the 15th October, you’ll be able to catch Dr Seuss’s The Lorax. All tickets can be booked here.
