Donmar Warehouse announce 2014 autumn season: Samantha Barks, Harriet Walter, Julian Ovenden, Rosalie Craig

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.


Henry IV

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.

  1. I agree with your comments. I saw Phantom at Her Majesty’s Theatre a cloupe of years ago, in August, to celebrate my daughter’s birthday. It was the most breathtaking, wonderful theatre experience of my life. I was completely mesmorised by the sights and sounds. Sadly, the production I saw in Edinburgh on the 15th October was a complete disappointment and nothing like the London production. I had waxed lyrical’ about the show to my husband and decided to take him for our wedding anniversary. I do feel he saw an inferior show and fully intend to go back to London to see the original as I don’t feel he saw the real’ Phantom. The singers were good but I don’t feel I had the same electric’ experience as during the London show. Also our enjoyment was spoiled by unappreciative audience members behind us who talked, coughed, sneezed, ate crisps and rustled sweety papers behind us. Not the show’s fault but i didn’t experience that in London either. The audience seemed to have more theatre etiquette there. Will return to London next time.
