Tom Stoppard’s Travesties will transfer to the West End in spring 2017
The Menier Chocolate Factory’s acclaimed revival of Tom Stoppard’s Travesties will transfer to the West End’s Apollo Theatre for a limited 12 week run from 3 February 2017.
Directed by Patrick Marber, Stoppard’s dazzling comedy of art, love and revolution features James Joyce, Tristan Tzara and Lenin as remembered – and misremembered – by Henry Carr, a minor British diplomat in Zurich 1917.
Tom Hollander stars as Henry Carr alongside Amy Morgan, Freddie Fox, Clare Foster, Peter McDonald, Sarah Quist and Forbes Masson.
The production sold-out the limited run at the Chocolate Factory before it opened to magnificent 4 and 5 star reviews. Hollander’s brilliant performance has already been tipped for an Olivier Award.
Travesties will run from 3 February 2017 until 29 April 2017 at the Apollo Theatre.
