Krapp’s Last Tape…
A man sitting behind a table, a man sitting on the edge of an unmade bed, two men sitting on a park bench. These are the settings in the Samuel Beckett Triple Bill currently at the tiny Jermyn Street Theatre and directed by theatre legend Trevor Nunn.
Like its predecessors, 2019’s Les Misérables: The Staged Concert will be long remembered as another notable event in the musical’s performance history, heralding the return of Michael Ball to a show he helped to establish, but this time in the role of Javert.
Jenna Russell’s stunning performance combined with Trevor Nunn’s delicately understated production captures the soul of the story perfectly in The Bridges of Madison County at the Menier Chocolate Factory.
Trevor Nunn’s glorious revival of the classic musical Fiddler on the Roof is wonderfully heartwarming to watch.
With its first major cast change since opening – as well as a shift across the Thames – Trevor Nunn’s Fiddler On The Roof remains one of London’s musical theatre jewels.

Maria Friedman and Anita Dobson are to join the company of Trevor Nunn’s critically-acclaimed production of Fiddler on the Roof which is currently running at the reconfigured Playhouse Theatre until 28 September 2019. Friedman plays Golde, and Dobson plays Yente from 18 June, taking over from Judy Kuhn and Louise Gold respectively.
Andy Nyman does sterling work to bring Tevye off the page, breaking the fourth wall to chat with the Almighty, and rubbing his arthritic joints to punctuate Sheldon Harnick’s lazy ‘deidle deidle deidle dumb’ lyrics in ‘If I Were A Rich Man’.
Funny, heartwarming, fascinating, tragic and devastating, Fiddler on the Roof is an unusual but hugely powerful musical, and this production brings out the very best in it.
My mother and her mother, and their generation, faced a crisis: How to stay connected to their heritage and history when the history was so painful? The solution for many was fantasy: unreal, topsy-turvy tales of The Old Country.
Trevor Nunn’s extraordinary production of Jerry Bock and Sheldon Harnick’s classic musical Fiddler on the Roof makes a delightful transfer to the Playhouse Theatre.

Details have been revealed of who will join Andy Nyman and Judy Kuhn in the West End transfer of Trevor Nunn’s critically-acclaimed Menier Chocolate Factory production of Fiddler on the Roof, due to run at the reconfigured Playhouse Theatre from 21 March until 15 June 2019.
Trevor Nunn’s critically-acclaimed production of Fiddler on the Roof with Andy Nyman and Judy Kuhn will transfer from the Menier Chocolate Factory to the reconfigured Playhouse Theatre from 21 March 2019 for a limited run – with over 25,000 tickets at £20 or less across the run.
Boiled down to a boutique-scale presentation, Fiddler on the Roof brims with fresh life, gentle humour and impactful drama.
In eschewing any trendy political statement to hang around his work, Nunn has made it all the more poignant and powerful. Deservedly sold out for the rest of its Menier run, his Fiddler On The Roof is a must-see musical.
