The Donmar Warehouse in Covent Garden has announced details of its 2014 Autumn Season.
Artistic Director Josie Rourke has announced the Donmar’s new productions for Autumn 2014, including revivals of My Night With Reg, Henry IV and City of Angels.
MY NIGHT WITH REG
Thurs 31 July – Sat 27 September 2014
A 20th anniversary revival of Kevin Elyot’s seminal comedy My Night With Reg comes to the Donmar directed by Robert Hastie and starring Matt Bardock, Jonathan Broadbent, Richard Cant, Julian Ovenden, Lewis Reeves and Geoffrey Streatfeild. The play is set within London’s gay community in the summer of 1985 against the back drop of the mounting AIDS crisis.
Friday 3 October – Sat 29 November 2014
Phyllida Lloyd follows her acclaimed Julius Caesar in 2012 with a new all-female production of Henry IV – which is the second in a trilogy of plays by the director. The production will star Harriet Walter as King Henry, Jade Anouka as Hotspur and Clare Dunne as Hal, and Ashley McGuire as Falstaff.
CITY OF ANGELS
Fri 5 December 2014 – Sat 7 February 2015
A well-timed revival of Broadway and West End hit musical City of Angels this Christmas at the Donmar, directed by Josie Rourke and starring Hadley Fraser as Stine, Rosalie Craig as Gabby/Bobbi and Samantha Barks as Mallory/Avril. Olivier Award-winner Stephen Mear will choreograph the production. With music by Cy Coleman, lyrics by David Zippel and book by Larry Gelbart, the show won both the Tony Award and Olivier Award for Best New Musical and is a celebration of film noir and Hollywood in black & white and colour.
Public booking opens on 18 June 2014.
