I can’t wait.” Director and Adapter, Kip Williams said: “In creating a new piece of theatre like The Picture of Dorian Gray you always hope to have the opportunity to share it with a wider audience. I am so excited for theatre lovers in London to experience our show and am thrilled to have the extraordinary Sarah Snook bringing to life the many characters of Oscar Wilde’s remarkable story.” Michael Cassel, producer of the West End season, said: “I knew, from the very first time I saw The Picture of Dorian Gray, that it deserved a global audience. Kip Williams’ genius production is transformative, innovative, transfixing and entertaining and I am beyond excited that the inimitable Sarah Snook will star in this incredible production.” Co-producer Adam Kenwright said: “This thrilling new look at one of Oscar Wilde’s most seminal works is a benchmark work of modern theatre and I am delighted to be joining my good friend Michael Cassel and team bringing it to London. A huge degree of thanks must go to Theatre Royal Haymarket’s Len Blavatnik and Danny Cohen. We are enlivened by their vision and their partnership in bringing The Picture of Dorian Gray to London.” Federal Arts Minister for New South Wales, Australia, Tony Burke MP said: “From the standing ovation at the first performance it was clear that this was a production that belonged on stages all over the world,” he said. “Michael Cassel Group, Kindred Partners and Sydney Theatre Company are making sure that one of the world's great works of literature, combined with the best of Australian creativity, is about to take the West End by storm.” More about tickets to The Picture of Dorian Gray at the Theatre Royal Haymarket in London
