I cannot understand why they decided to try to adapt the story of The Da Vinci Code to the letter. The novel did not fend well as a film and it appears to have suffered the same fate as a live production.

Mark Benton and Nigel Harman will star in Sam Yates’ hit West End production of David Mamet’s Glengarry Glen Ross which will embark on a nationwide tour from 14 February 2019, opening at the New Victoria Theatre, Woking.
Filled with plenty of laughter and fun, it is safe to say the audience left the theatre with a spring in their step and a smile on their face thanks to Shrek and his loveable fairytale companions.
Big, bright and brash, there are plenty of laughs in the new touring production of Shrek the Musical, which is debuting at the Playhouse until the first week of the new year.

Nigel Harman has become a familiar name and face following his popular appearance in EastEnders as Dennis, the Son of Dirty Den. Since then he has gone on to appear on stage and screen as well as turn his hand to directing and producing.
Its rather lazy, and stereotypical, approach to laughing at the gays aside, there’s a quite a lot to enjoy here in the Birmingham REP’s production of the award-winning French play What’s In A Name?.
What’s In A Name resembles a snapshot into every day family life. The witty, observational script combined with a cast who are all at the top of their game ensures that this production wouldn’t look out of place in the West End.
Nigel Harman and Sarah Hadland star in the UK première of What’s In A Name?, which runs at Birmingham Repertory Theatre from 27 January to 11 February 2017.

Two rarely seen short plays by Steven Berkoff are professionally performed together for the first time in this much-anticipated West End premiere. LUNCH and, written 20 years later, its sequel THE BOW OF ULYSSES are both set at the seaside where a couple first passionately collide and, decades later, sit reflecting on their wasted life […]
Steven Berkoff’s plays are curious examinations of one couple’s relationship from when they first met, then fast forwarding to twenty years later but strongly brought to life by Emily Bruni and Shaun Dooley’s performances.
As part of her post-show Q&A series, Mates co-founder Terri Paddock will talk to actor-turned-director Nigel Harman along with Emily Bruni and Shaun Dooley, the stars of his just-opened, Mates-acclaimed Steven Berkoff double bill, Lunch and The Bow of Ulysses at Trafalgar Studios after the evening performance this coming Monday 17 October 2016. Got any questions? Book tickets to join her via the links below.
It’s a series of observations and inner thoughts spoken aloud. This is how it made me feel, it was as if I was a fly on the wall, that I was party to the inner wants and dreams of two people meeting.
In a powerfully devastating and unrelentingly humorous look at the dark and unspoken truths manifest in the psyches of men and women after decades spent together in a relationship, the double header of Steven Berkoff’s Lunch and The Bow of Ulysses at Trafalgar Studios is gripping theatre that will possibly provide less than comfortable cab rides home for some of the couples in the audience.
There’s something instantly inviting about the bench on the seaside pier where average Tom meets average Mary and the crash of the waves under the boardwalk echoes the crash of the noisy internal monologues through which they convince themselves to first connect.
Shaun Dooley and Emily Bruni are to star in a major West End season of Steven Berkoff one-act plays, Lunch and The Bow of Ulysses, directed by Nigel Harman at Trafalgar Studios in October.
