Maybe in a far-off dimension of time and space, at the crossroads of imagination and reality, our descendants will discover a stage adaption of The Twilight Zone which will fill them with the wonder and mystery of the original. But not here.
Love London Love Culture rounds up the reviews for Anne Washburn’s adaptation based on the television series The Twilight Zone.
Anne Washburn’s latest offering, Shipwreck, is a marathon play at the Almeida Theatre that takes direct aim at the Trump Administration.
Love London Love Culture rounds up the reviews for Rupert Goold’s production of Shipwreck, playing at the Almeida Theatre until 30 March 2019.
Shipwreck has its moments and the cast are uniformly excellent, but without strong character investment it dwindles to little more than a few well-hashed arguments we’ve all heard before.
Full casting has been announced for the highly-anticipated West End transfer of the Almeida’s production of The Twilight Zone which transfers to the Ambassadors Theatre from 4 March 2019 (press night is 8 March).
The Almeida Theatre has announced the full cast for the world premiere of Shipwreck by Anne Washburn (The Twilight Zone, Mr Burns), directed by the venue’s artistic director Rupert Goold, running from 12 February to 30 March 2019 (press night is 19 February).
Mark Shenton offers the week’s news, reviews, quotes and tweets in theatre from both sides of the Atlantic, including an interview with Sonia Friedman, reviews of Shakespeare in three different abbreviated versions, and a YouTube star appearing on Broadway.
After a sell-out Almeida run, The Twilight Zone will transfer to the West End and will run at the Ambassadors Theatre from 4 March 2019 (press night is 8 March). Adapted by Anne Washburn (Mr Burns), this production of the acclaimed classic CBS television series The Twilight Zone is directed by the multi-award-winning director (winner of seven Olivier Awards) Richard Jones.
Artistic director Rupert Goold has announced the Almeida Theatre’s new season.
Anne Washburn (she of the extraordinary Mr Burns) has fashioned this play out of eight of the stories told by The Twilight Zone and presents them as if shuffling a pack of cards.
The action is tightly choreographed, with the nine-strong cast playing multiple characters in a black and white world, wearing black and white costumes and performing in black box speckled with white stars and occasionally, on a television set.
It is at times hilarious, with some fine deadpan 1950s performances from the cast of 10 and three supernumeraries doing the trundling.
In addition to the West End transfer of James Graham’s Ink, the Almeida Theatre has today announced its new season, including the stage premiere of The Twilight Zone and Mike Bartlett’s new play Albion.
