Alix Sobler’s The Glass Piano officially premiered last night (30 April 2019) and these first-look photos of Max Key’s production are absolutely stunning. Travel back in time to the 19th century and enter the Bavarian palace that Notting Hill’s historic Coronet has become to tell Princess Alexandra’s story. Time to get booking!
The Glass Piano, written by award-winning playwright Alix Sobler and directed by Olivier-nominated Max Key, runs at the Print Room at the Coronet, in Notting Hill, west London, from 26 April to 25 May 2019, with a press night on 30 April and a post-show Q&A chaired by Mates co-founder Terri Paddock on Wednesday 8 May.
As Alexandra tiptoes carefully through the palace corridors, turning sideways to pass through doorways, terrified that at the slightest disturbance the piano would shatter inside her, her father, King Ludwig I, can do nothing to help – until a young man comes to the palace.
Princess Alexandra is played by Stage Debut Award winner Grace Molony. She’s joined in the cast by Timothy Walker as Ludwig, Olivier Award winner Suzan Sylvester as nurse Galestina and Laurence Ubong Williams as Lucien. The Glass Piano, directed by Max Key, features music composed by Gabriel Prokofiev, the grandson of Sergei Prokofiev, which will be played onstage by pianist Elizabeth Rossiter.
The Glass Piano runs from 26 April to 25 May 2019 at the Print Room at the Coronet, 103 Notting Hill Gate, London W11 3LB, with performances Mondays to Saturdays at 7.30pm. Tickets are priced £20-£30. CLICK HERE TO PURCHASE!
