A Marvellous Party, commissioned by the Noël Coward Foundation, ostensibly marks the centenary of Coward’s first appearance on stage and has been produced to raise funds for actors on both sides of the Atlantic who are struggling with the effects of the pandemic.
The National Theatre will reopen with a socially distanced production of new one-person play, Death of England: Delroy, by Clint Dyer and Roy Williams, directed by Dyer and performed by Giles Terera.
Hello Harry!, an online concert celebrating the incredible 40-year career of Harry Gabriel, the Shaftesbury Theatre’s Stage Door Keeper, was an absolute ray of sunshine.
Harry Gabriel is one of those unsung heroes in theatreland: the stage door keeper. Part surrogate parent, part nurse, part firm friend, they are the conduit between front and back of house, cast and crew, performer and fan.
In forty years at the Sha…
Clarke Peters directs the premiere of Leslie Bricusse musical SAMMY, starring Giles Terera as Sammy Davis Jr, at London’s Lyric Hammersmith this summer.
Elton John, Sam Mendes, Christopher Hampton, Natasha Gordon, James Graham, Giles Terera and Stephen Mear are among the list of theatre and showbusiness luminaries who feature in this year’s Queen’s Birthday Honours List.
Written in 1886, Henrik Ibsen’s play Rosmersholm has a new-found poignancy in today’s political climate.
Neil Austin’s lighting design in Rosmersholm at the Duke of York’s Theatre is a thing of beauty and Hayley Atwell is excellent but Ibsen is still Ibsen…
It could all go horribly wrong but Ian Rickson’s production of Rosmersholm in Duncan Macmillan’s new adaptation brings Ibsen’s dense moral and political tragedy safely into port.
Love London Love Culture rounds up the reviews for Rosmersholm at Duke of York’s Theatre, a new adaptation of Ibsen’s play.
I wanted to be more engaged with the fierce fin-de siecle political play that is Ibsen’s Rosmersholm, but Rosmer got in the way.
Most importantly Ian Rickson’s gripping production of Rosmersholm suggests that great female roles are to be found among the classics if only we look hard enough.
Here’s Love London Love Culture’s guide to some of the best theatre openings in May.
Giles Terera, Lucy Briers, Jake Fairbrother and Peter Wight have been cast alongside Tom Burke and Hayley Atwell in Henrik Ibsen’s Rosmersholm, adapted by Duncan Macmillan and directed by Ian Rickson, playing at the Duke of York’s Theatre from 24 April to 20 July 2019.
Clarke Peters and Sule Rimi are to step in to cover the roles of Robertson, Moe 3 and Taylor in Arthur Miller’s The American Clock at the Old Vic, directed by Rachel Chavkin, following news that Giles Terera has had to withdraw from the production for personal reasons.
Steve Tompkins, director of Haworth Tompkins, the architecture studio responsible for projects including many of UK theatre’s most high-profile building projects, has been named number one in The Stage 100 in association with Spektrix.
Giles Terera (Hamilton) will be joining the cast of Arthur Miller’s The American Clock at the Old Vic, directed by Rachel Chavkin, to play Robertson/Moe 3.
The Hamilton track ‘The Room Where It Happens’ stands up well as a track to listen to on the cast recording, but something really special happens when you watch it being performed.
So, that just happened! Despite some small disappointments in the nominations (nothing too much, just some things felt unnecessarily overlooked), I was rather looking forward to this year’s Oliviers.
Has there ever been a more hotly anticipated new musical? A rhapsodic biography of America’s ‘forgotten’ founding father, Hamilton has whipped up a hurricane (pardon the pun) of frenzy, speculation, and, nay-sayers would argue, hyperbole which has swept the world to become a truly global phenomenon.
