London on Stage | October 5-14, 2017
We are in London now and we want to tell you about the plays that we will see on this trip.
We just took a group to The Ferryman by Jez Butterworth, which we will see in October. It is over-the-top good, and will be talked about for years. It was the fastest-selling show in Royal Court Theatre history, and everyone wants in. The night we saw it, in the audience with us were Nicole Kidman, Dustin Hoffman, and (wait for it) Keith Urban.
Another play we’ve selected, The Girl from the North Country by Conor McPherson, is already getting significant buzz before it’s even opened, being called by The Guardian “the play to see this summer.”
One more exciting opportunity we’ll have on this trip is great seats to J.T. Rogers extraordinary playOSLO, winner of the Obie Award for Best New American Theatre Work and nominated for a whopping 7 Tony Awards this year.
These plays, and Wings which we’re seeing at the Young Vic with the incomparable actress, Juliet Stevenson, and King Lear at the Globe, with one of the most creative minds in theatre, Nancy Meckler directing, are superior plays and incredible productions compared to what we’ve seen in past trips. Remember that we have seen Cumberbatch’s Hamlet and Harry Potter and the Cursed Child previously. These plays are so very good.
