The Mentor

star 1star 2star 3

Until September 2, 2017

After impressing folks and winning rave reviews on its premiere in Bath this spring, Daniel Kehlmann's new play, the first to be staged outside of his native Germany, comes to the London for a West End run with Oscar-winner F.Murray Abraham at the reigns. Art and the artist's legacy are the at the forefront of this comedy about two writers sequestered in the German countryside on a 10,000 euro development retreat.

The Hunting of the Snark

Until September 2, 2017

Return to Lewis Carroll's Wonderland, in this original new family musical from the makers of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert! Coming to the West End's Vaudeville Theatre this July for the summer holidays, we join a cast of eccentric creatures who go on a quest across the sea to capture a rather strange character himself! The Boy, The Banker, The Butcher, The Baker, The Bellman and The Knitting Beaver are based on the poem by Carroll, and finally comes to life in an ultra-modern production for the ages, where fellow seafarers of all ages are welcome to come aboard!

A Woman of No Importance

October 6-December 30, 2017

Former Artistic Director of the Globe Dominic Dromgoole heads a new year-long season in celebration of Oscar Wilde with his new theatre company Classic Spring. Opening the event is A Woman of No Importance starring the delightful Olivier-winning Eve Best. An upper-class satire that could only have come from the pen of Wilde, secrets and lies collide at a posh country house party in a melodrama that impresses with wit and wisdom.

Wilde Creatures

December 15-31, 2017

Wilde's fairytale world is brought to dazzling life in this new adaptation from Tall Stories theatre company that forms part of Dominic Dromgoole's year long Oscar Wilde season. Billed as a new musical for ages 5 - 105, enjoy a thrilling foray into the strange lands, forests, and palaces of Wilde's imagination.

Lady Windermere's Fan

January 12-April 7, 2018

Former Artistic Director of the Globe Dominic Dromgoole heads a new year long season in celebration of Oscar Wilde with his new theatre company Classic Spring. Second on the docket is this early Wilde gem, Lady Windermere's Fan. A perfectly pitched send up of high society's obsession with reputation that would come to typify his stage work in later years, enjoy this brand new production as directed by Kathy Burke (yes, that Kathy Burke.)

The Vaudeville Theatre is a West End theatre located on the Strand, and was originally built to host vaudeville shows and musical revues. Since its opening in 1870, it has been rebuilt twice while keeping some of its original features. Max Weitzenhoffer took ownership of the theatre in 2003, and in 2005, Nimax Theatres Limited took over its management. It now stages successful long-running musicals and plays.
