McQueen transfers to the West End’s Theatre Royal Haymarket

McQueen

Stephen Wight

Following a sold-out run at the St James Theatre in May 2015, McQueen will transfer for a strictly limited season from 13 August 2015 until 7 November 2015 at the Theatre Royal Haymarket

Written by James Phillips and directed by John Caird, the production stars award-winning actor Stephen Wight in the title role. Janet McQueen, one of Lee Alexander McQueen’s sisters, said of the play and the production at St. James Theatre, “It was as though the play and Stephen’s performance brought Lee back to me again. I felt as though he was real again for me.” Gary McQueen, Lee’s nephew, added, “It does really hit something in your heart.”

Carly Bawden joins Stephen Wight in the West End run, taking over the role of Dahlia which was originated by US actress Dianna Argon. Reprising their roles as Isabella Blow and Arabella will be Tracy-Ann Oberman and Laura Rees respectively with Michael Bertenshaw joining the cast as Mr Hitchcock

For the transfer to the West End, scenes have been rewritten and an interval has been added. James Phillips said, “I’m so delighted to have McQueen in the West End, and to take this opportunity to refine some things from the original production.”
