Romeo And Juliet

star 1star 2star 3star 4star 4.5

Until August 13, 2016

Not content with playing the unashamedly cute couple in Disney's live action Cinderella in 2015, Richard Madden and Lily James are pairing up yet again (!) for a revival of Romeo and Juliet, at the Garrick Theatre, once again directed by Kenneth Branagh. The play was last seen on Broadway starring Orlando Bloom and Condola Rashad as the doomed lovers, and is set to take London by storm, in what will be a bumper season year for Branagh at the Garrick Theatre. Derek Jacobi has just been announced to join the cast as hot-headed Mercutio in what is seen as a move against ageism in the theatre.

The Entertainer

August 20-November 12, 2016

Kenneth Branagh makes a welcome return to the West End with a brand-new season at the Garrick Theatre, helming three productions. The Entertainer will star the man himself in the lead role of Archie Rice in a parable that closely mirrors the decline of the British Empire in a crumbling post-vaudeville setting. Directed by Rob Ashford.

This House

October 30, 2016-February 25, 2017

James Graham's incisive and razor sharp exploration of political machinations makes its West End debut after two sell out runs at The Natoinal Theatre. The action is set during the 1974 hung parliament, and details the skulduggery which was employed to win every single crucial vote.

The Miser

March 1-June 10, 2017

Griff Rhys Jones returns to the West End for the first time in five years to star in Sean Foley's adaptation of Moliere's farcical portrait of a family at war over true love and the penny-pinching avarice of their father, the titular miser.

Located on Charing Cross Road, The Garrick Theatre is a West End theatre which opened in 1889, when it was known for its performances of melodrama. The theatre is named in honour of actor David Garrick. Since October 2005, the theatre has been owned and operated under Nimax Theatres Ltd, of Nica Burns and Max Weitzenhoffer. The Grade II listed building now hosts a wide variety of productions.
