It’s all change in the West End over the next few weeks as a number of high-profile West End shows bring down their curtains for the final time, including Tracie Bennett in End of the Rainbow, The Umbrellas of Cherbourg, In A Forest, Dark And Deep, Flare Path and Dirty Dancing.
The final performance of Trevor Nunn’s critically acclaimed production of Terence Rattigan’s Flare Path is on Saturday 11 June 2011. Flare Path, which opened on 14 March, recouped after 6 weeks, and was extended due to public demand, is the first production in Nunn’s role as Artistic Director of the Theatre Royal Haymarket. In Rattigan’s centenary year, Flare Path was the first of several major revivals of his plays in London and beyond, including Cause Célèbre at The Old Vic, a new film of The Deep Blue Sea, a season of his films at the BFI, a special display at the British Library, BBC radio productions and the publication of new editions of his work.
Following the opening of Terence Rattigan’s Flare Path, the Theatre Royal Haymarket Company today (1 April 2011) announce a further two productions to be directed by Trevor Nunn in his role as Artistic Director. After a three week run at the Chichester Festival Theatre, Nunn’s production of Tom Stoppard’s Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead comes to the Theatre Royal Haymarket in June, followed in September by William Shakespeare’s The Tempest. Further productions in the season will be announced shortly.
