Ehrlich gesagt gefällt mir Astrov mit Stubbels wesentlich besser als das Gestrüpp, welches Richard gerade trägt.

Ich setze darauf, dass die Promobilder schon ein Hinweis darauf sind, wie Astrov (und damit Richard :mrgreen: ) von Januar bis Mai 2020 aussehen wird.

Fährt/fliegt eigentlich irgendjemand von uns nach London um das Stück zu sehen? Ich fliege im Februar (15. bis 20.) #freu
Das war sowieso schon längst fällig, ich war das letzte Mal 2017 in London, und das war nur eine Übernachtung auf dem Weg zu den Pinguinen. Ich bin total ausgehungert! Und das ist jetzt der perfekte Grund. :-D

Theatre in London: From The Welkin to Uncle Vanya, the best theatre shows this January


Jessie Thompson
1 day ago

A new year brings new beginnings - and that includes the start of another twelve months of great London theatre.

2020 is set to start with a bang, with a new Lucy Kirkwood play, a big Chekhov revival in the West End, and lots of intriguing shows from some of the capital’s most-loved theatres.

Want to know what to see at the theatre in January? Read on...


The Welkin

A new play from Lucy Kirkwood feels like an extremely good way to get 2020 started. Set in 18th century rural Suffolk, a jury of 12 women are deciding the fate of Sally Poppy, who is sentenced to hang after being accused of murder; her claim to be pregnant makes the decision more complicated. Directed by James Macdonald, who took Kirkwood’s last play The Children all the way to Broadway, it will star Maxine Peake and Ria Zmitrowicz.

January 15 - May 23, National Theatre; nationaltheatre.org.uk


Uncle Vanya

If 2019 felt like the year of Ibsen, here comes Chekhov to reclaim some ground. And it’s a sterling line-up: Conor McPherson is adapting the play, Ian Rickson directs, and Toby Jones, Richard Armitage, Aimee Lou Wood and Ciaran Hinds are among the cast.

January 14 - May 2, Harold Pinter Theatre


The Tyler Sisters

Inspired by iconic photo series The Brown Sisters, which charted a group of American sisters through portraits taken over 40 years, this new play from Alexandra Wood examines how a family bond grows and develops across time.

Until January 18, Hampstead Theatre; hampsteadtheatre.com


Scenes With Girls

Sex Education star Tanya Reynolds appears in Miriam Battye’s new play, developed on the Royal Court Writers’ Group, which tells the story of two girls across 22 scenes. Directed by Lucy Morrison in the Upstairs space, the cast also features Rebekah Murrell and Letty Thomas.

January 15 - February 22, Royal Court; royalcourttheatre.com


Faces in the Crowd

Valeria Luiselli’s novel Lost Children Archive was longlisted for both the Booker and Women’s Prize in 2019; now is the chance to get to know another of her books. Ellen McDougall directs her 2010 novel Faces in the Crowd (Los Ingravidos) on stage, which intertwines the stories of three different people to explore the fluidity of identity.

January 16 - February 8, Gate Theatre; gatetheatre.co.uk


Magic Goes Wrong

Mischief Theatre continues its stint of making things go wrong in the West End in the funniest way possible, this time turning its hands to magic. The company have teamed up with magicians Penn and Teller for a story about not-quite-so-good magicians trying to raise money for a charity event.

Until May 31, Vaudeville Theatre


Faustus: That Damned Woman


What if Faustus had been a woman? That’s the question at the heart of this new adaptation from Chris Bush, another Lyric production giving the canon a contemporary twist following the success of its A Doll’s House last year, where the action was moved to Calcutta.

January 22 - February 22, Lyric Hammersmith; lyric.co.uk


Kunene and the King

After a sold-out run in Cape Town and Stratford-Upon-Avon, the RSC marks 25 years since the end of Apartheid by bringing John Kani’s acclaimed play about its legacy to the West End. Starring Kuni himself and Anthony Sher, it tells the story of two men from different walks of life coming together for a conversation in South Africa in 2019.

January 24 - March 28, Ambassadors Theatre

Top 10 theatre openings in London in January 2020
Theatre in January 2020


Friday, 03 January, 2020, 09:41
Sophie Thomas

As a new year begins, audiences can look forward to the latest Broadway hits and homegrown productions across London's theatres. Even in the first few weeks of 2020, there's plenty of new offerings across the city, from the spellbinding tricks in Mischief Theatre's newest show to historical dramas taking over the West End. Start your new year with a dose of London’s finest theatre. Here are our top picks for January.


Magic Goes Wrong

The second production as part of Mischief Theatre’s year-long residency at the Vaudeville Theatre, Magic Goes Wrong is set to bring grand illusion into the heart of London’s West End. True to traditional ‘Goes Wrong’ fashion, the show follows a group set on wowing their audiences in their unique dastardly style - this time it’s a charity magic performance with the performers aiming to raise as much money as possible. Attempting to make rabbits appear from top hats and pull off the tricks up their sleeves, Magic Goes Wrong is also a groundbreaking production for the British theatre company themselves, collaborating with co-writers for the first time in the name of American magic legends Penn & Teller.

Vaudeville Theatre, opens 8th January.


Leopoldstadt

With a history of award-winning plays including Travesties and Arcadia, Tom Stoppard returns to the West End for the first time in five years with his newest work, set to open at the Wyndham’s later this month. Titled Leopoldstadt, the play will follow a Jewish family living in twentieth-century Vienna whose lives are changed when they flee to the crowded tenements in the Jewish quarter of the Austrian city. With press material stating the play as Stoppard’s “most personal play” to date that’s inspired by his family history, audiences can look forward to this enduring drama.

Wyndham’s Theatre, from 25th January.


Uncle Vanya

Toby Jones and Richard Armitage will star in a new production of Chekhov’s twentieth-century literary classic, newly adapted by Girl from the North Country’s playwright Conor McPherson. The original text sees Sonya and her uncle Vanya living in an isolated countryside estate, with regular visits from their doctor Astrov for company. But, as Sonya’s father returns home, relationships go awry as emotions rise to the surface. Directed by Ian Rickson, it’s sure to capture the essence of the Chekhov great with a new lease of life.

Harold Pinter Theatre, opens 23rd January.



Kunene and the King

First performed to mark the end of Apartheid, performing greats Antony Sher and John Kani star in Kunene and the King, a socio-political drama celebrating all walks of life in the African nation. Written by Kani, it’s a two-man drama following a white man trained as a classical actor who is being looked after by a local nurse. With seemingly little in common, conversations turn to their shared love – William Shakespeare – in this uplifting, heartwarming production in the West End for just nine weeks.

Ambassadors Theatre, opens 29th January.


Faustus: That Damned Woman

The Faust myth has been told on stage for over 400 years, and it’s no stranger to the West End, with Christopher Marlowe’s Doctor Faustus last seen in the West End in 2016. But, in a reimagined adaptation that sees the titular character as a woman, Jodie McNee will play Johanna Faustus in Chris Bush’s latest play, as Faustus sacrifices herself to change the course of history and achieve greatness.

Lyric Hammersmith Theatre, opens 28th January.


The Sunset Limited

Making West End history as the first play to be performed at the newly-opened Boulevard Theatre, Cormac McCarthy’s powerful narrative receives its London premiere this month, directed by Terry Johnson. Gary Beadle and Jasper Britton star in the two-man drama, following two people whose chance encounter at a subway platform leads to asking essential questions that face humanity.

Boulevard Theatre, opens 21st January.


The Welkin

Rural witchhunts in 18th century England come alive in Lucy Kirkwood’s newest play, opening in the National’s Lyttleton Theatre later this month. Titled The Welkin, James Macdonald directs Ria Zmitrowicz who plays Sally, a young woman sentenced to hang for murder. With rumours in the local villages that the devil lives within her, her life is in the hands of 12 women on a jury – but will the defence of Lizzy Luke (played by Maxine Peake) be strong enough to overrule all judgment?

Lyttelton Theatre, opens 22nd January.


Scenes with girls

Lucy Morrison directs a trio of young women in Scenes with girls at the Royal Court, developed by Miriam Battye in association with the theatre’s writing group. Told over 22 scenes, audiences will meet Lou, Tosh and Fran over several years as they deal with their emotions and exploring the “different possible Happys”, as said in press material.

Royal Court, opens 21st January.


RAGS

Stephen Schwartz’ lyrics can be heard in Wicked and the upcoming West End premiere of The Prince of Egypt, but the Park Theatre will be home to a new life for the rarely performed RAGS, transferring from Manchester’s Hope Mill Theatre. Following the lives of immigrants who arrived at Ellis Island at the turn of the twentieth century, it’s a testament to America’s rich past, starring Carolyn Maitland, Dave Willetts and Sam Attwater.

Park Theatre, opens 14th January.


Sex/Crime

Two men meet up to recreate the killings of a notorious gay serial killer in Alexis Gregory’s Sex/Crime, coming to Soho Theatre this month. Exploring the impact of sex, violence and queerness in new surroundings, will ‘A’ and ‘B’ be able to enjoy a night of pleasure with everything falling apart around them.

Soho Theatre, opens 22nd January.

Jake Gyllenhaal and Tom Stoppard are among the names bringing shows to UK stages in 2020

Sarah Hemming January 2 2020


As we soberly contemplate all those New Year’s resolutions that seemed such a good idea before the cold light of dawn set in, help is at hand. A recent study published in the British Medical Journal found that going to the theatre could extend your life. Research led by Dr Daisy Fancourt of UCL discovered that frequent engagement in cultural activities could mean a lower risk of dying. It seems that science has now confirmed what we theatre-lovers knew all along: theatre does you good.

And the excellent news is that in 2020 there is plenty to get us into shape. To kick-start our bid for longevity, we can look to one of our most dazzling and audacious playwrights: Tom Stoppard, who, aged 82, starts the year with a bit of heavy lifting. A new Stoppard is always an event and the dramatist launches the decade with an epic premiere. Leopoldstadt (Wyndham’s Theatre, London, from January 25) follows one Jewish family from Vienna through the first 50 years of the 20th century. It’s clearly a very personal story (Stoppard’s own family, though Czech rather than Austrian, fled the Nazis and his grandparents died in the camps), but it could also have chilling contemporary resonance, given the rise in anti-Semitism and populist politics. A 26-strong cast (including Stoppard’s son, Ed) is directed by Patrick Marber.

New decade, new writing too at the National Theatre, which plunges into 2020 with a major piece from Lucy Kirkwood (Chimerica, Mosquitoes). Kirkwood has a terrific way of digging into huge, geopolitical questions through vivid personal narratives and her new work, The Welkin (National Theatre, London, from January 15) is typically ambitious. Set in rural Suffolk in 1759, it explores what happens when a jury of 12 matrons is summoned to decide whether a young woman sentenced to hang is genuinely pregnant or not. It’s a drama that will fill the Lyttelton stage with a largely female cast, led by Maxine Peake.

In the National’s Olivier, meanwhile, Tony Kushner returns for the first time since the stonking 2017 success of Angels in America with a new version of Dürrenmatt’s The Visit (from January 31).

The Royal Shakespeare Company also offers a moral and political workout in the shape of an epic, historical piece, this time focusing on the early 19th century and the abolition of slavery. The Whip (Swan Theatre, Stratford-upon-Avon, from February 1) by Juliet Gilkes Romero considers the price of freedom: is the cause worth a multi-billion-pound pay-off to the slave owners?

If it’s a spot of cardio we are after, there is pulse-quickening casting all over the UK stage this year. At the Old Vic, Hollywood star Timothée Chalamet and theatrical royalty Eileen Atkins take up residence in Amy Herzog’s Pulitzer-nominated two-hander 4000 Miles (Old Vic, London, from April 6), about unlikely housemates 21-year-old Leo and his 91-year-old grandmother. Daniel Radcliffe and Alan Cumming will be in the same space just before them in a new staging of Beckett’s mordant existentialist classic Endgame (Old Vic from January 27).

Other promising revivals include Toby Jones and Richard Armitage as Vanya and Astrov in Conor McPherson’s new version of Chekhov’s masterpiece Uncle Vanya (Harold Pinter Theatre, London, from January 14) and, a month later, Roger Allam and Colin Morgan as father and son(s) in Caryl Churchill’s brilliant cloning drama A Number (Bridge Theatre, London, from February 14).

In summer, Isabelle Huppert arrives at the Barbican as the overbearing mother in Tennessee Williams’ heartbreaking The Glass Menagerie, directed by man-about-globe Ivo van Hove for the Odéon-Théâtre de l’Europe (Barbican, London, from June 5). Cush Jumbo, meanwhile, becomes the latest female actor to have a crack at the gloomy Dane in Hamlet (Young Vic, London, from July 6).

Elsewhere we have men on a mission. Rhys Ifans plays Atticus Finch in the UK premiere of To Kill a Mocking Bird, adapted by Aaron Sorkin from Harper Lee’s novel (Gielgud Theatre, London, from May 21). And you can find the mercurial Mark Rylance at Bristol Old Vic this summer in the premiere of Semmelweiss, written by Stephen Brown and directed by Tom Morris, about the pioneering 19th-century Hungarian physician Ignaz Semmelweiss, who controversially recommended antiseptic procedures in childbirth (Bristol Old Vic from June 13).

One of our most active directors last year was Jamie Lloyd (following up his sizzling Pinter season with a stupendous Cyrano de Bergerac), so you might expect him to take it easy in 2020. But on the contrary: already on his agenda are two classic revivals. Emilia Clarke makes her West End debut as Nina in Chekhov’s The Seagull (Playhouse Theatre, London, from March 11) and Jessica Chatlain plays Nora in Ibsen’s A Doll’s House (Playhouse Theatre, London from June 10). Nora also pops up at the Young Vic, in Stef Smith’s reworking of the original (Nora: A Doll’s House), set in three different eras (Young Vic, London, from February 5). It seems Ibsen, man of the moment last year, is still in vogue.

Away from this intense core work, in the high-energy musicals corner you’ll find Imelda Staunton in Hello, Dolly! (Adelphi Theatre, London, from August 11), directed by Dominic Cooke (this pair worked together on the National Theatre’s sumptuous Follies, so anticipation is high). And what about Jake Gyllenhaal, reprising his Broadway performance as painter Georges Seurat in Sondheim’s groundbreaking musical Sunday in the Park with George (Savoy Theatre, London, from June 11)?

Other eye-catching musical openings include Frozen, looming like an icy peak on the horizon and destined to give everyone an earworm of “Let it Go” (opening the refurbished Theatre Royal Drury Lane, London, in autumn), and (great Scott!), 1985-time-travelling movie Back to the Future, which touches down in Manchester ahead of a London transfer (Manchester Opera House from February 20).

Finally, for anyone who was slow off the mark last year: some of the best 2019 shows are back. There’s a new appointment for The Doctor, Robert Icke’s revelatory Schnitzler adaptation starring Juliet Stevenson (Duke of York’s, London, from April 20). Sheffield Crucible’s hugely praised, puppet-led Life of Pi, adapted by Lolita Chakrabarti, arrives in London (Wyndham’s Theatre, London, from June 22). And, for a spot of excellent exercise for both the grey matter and laughter muscles, Laura Wade’s sparkling Jane Austen spoof The Watsons moves into the West End (Harold Pinter Theatre, London, from May 8).

And if you’ve still got time for a turn on the exercise bike after all that — well, it probably won’t do any harm.

What to see this week in the UK

From 1917 to Uncle Vanya, here’s our pick of the best films, concerts, exhibitions, theatre and dance over the next seven days

Five of the best … theatre shows

Uncle Vanya

One of the first big-hitters of the theatrical year arrives and it’s set to be a cracker. This adaptation is penned by Conor McPherson, whom you can always depend on to create something special. A stunning cast includes Toby Jones (always an enigma) in the title role, plus Richard Armitage (always powerful) and Ciarán Hinds (always devastating). Directed by Ian Rickson.
The Harold Pinter Theatre, SW1, Tuesday 14 January to 2 May



Guys and Dolls

Director Robert Hastie has created a sparkling new take on Frank Loesser’s musical about seductive sinner Sky Masterston and the woman who might just save his soul. The whole cast is clearly having a ball but Natalie Casey (pictured) and Martin Marquez steal the show as long-time lovers (and squabblers) Miss Adelaide and Nathan Detroit.
Crucible Theatre, Sheffield, to 18 January


Scenes With Girls

Miriam Battye has been steadily making a name for herself with intriguing plays for the National Youth Theatre and Manchester’s Royal Exchange. Her latest drama is about close friends Tosh and Lou who’ve grown up together – just the two of them (and their own special language) against the world. What future do they imagine for themselves? Lucy Morrison directs Rebekah Murrell, Tanya Reynolds and Letty Thomas.
Royal Court, SW1, Wednesday 15 January to 22 February


West Side Story

It’s your last chance to see Nikolai Foster’s bold take on Leonard Bernstein’s masterful musical. Even the most innovative shows can end up being predictable but this West Side Story feels timely and new. There’s original choreography from Ellen Kane, and a real sense of danger and spontaneity underpins all those clicks and high kicks. Romantic leads Adriana Ivelisse and Jamie Muscato make sure this Romeo and Juliet-inspired musical is still shot through with tenderness.
Curve Theatre, Leicester, to 18 January


Beckett Triple Bill

This is quite a coup for fringe theatre Jermyn Street. Trevor Nunn is directing a triple bill of Beckett plays: Krapp’s Last Tape, Eh Joe and The Old Tune. The big-hitting cast features Niall Buggy, James Hayes, David Threlfall and Beckett actor extraordinaire Lisa Dwan. It’s a rare chance to see these special and haunting plays all in one go, and they should feel particularly intense in this intimate venue.
Jermyn Street Theatre, SW1, Wednesday 15 January to 8 February

Famous faces coming to the West End in 2020

By Hira Desai Published 10 January 2020

2020 is an exciting year for Theatreland! We’ve got brand new screen-to-stage adaptions, unique revivals, Broadway transfers, and a whole lotta famous faces!

From multi-award-winning Hollywood stars to British icons making their stage debuts, we round up some of the famous faces coming to the West End in 2020.


Toby Jones and Richard Armitage in Uncle Vanya

14 January – 2 May

In this thrilling new adaption of Chekov’s Uncle Vanya, Toby Jones (Detectorists, Captain America) stars as Vanya, while Richard Armitage (The Crucible, The Hobbit) will take to the stage for the first time in six years in the role of Doctor Astrov.

You may remember Toby starring alongside Benedict Cumberbatch and Claire Foy in Don’t Forget The Driver, a BBC Two comedy-drama series which aired in April 2019, and which he co-wrote with Tim Crouch. Richard, on the other hand, has most recently starred in the movies Berlin Station, Oceans 8, and in the famous role of Thorin Oakenshield in The Hobbit trilogy. He will appear later this month as the lead in Netflix’s thriller series, The Stranger.

We can’t wait to see the two British acting greats in this tale of love, loss and family tensions, brought to new life by the Oliver Award-winning Conor McPherson (Girl From The North Country, The Weir) at the Harold Pinter Theatre.




Daniel Radcliffe and Alan Cumming in Endgame

27 January – 28 March

Hold tight, theatre fans! Two highly prolific British actors are gracing the West End this year in The Old Vic‘s revival of Samuel Beckett’s macabre comedy, Endgame.

This rarely-seen double bill will see Harry Potter superstar, Daniel Radcliffe return to the stage after his successful run in Equus. He will be joined by Olivier Award-winning Alan Cumming, known in Theatreland for Hamlet (Donmar Warehouse), Accidental Death of An Anarchist and Bent (West End). In addition, Jane Horrocks (Pinter At The Pinter season at the Harold Pinter Theatre, East is East, Cabaret) and Karl Johnson (King Lear, As You Like It, Girl from The North Country) will also be joining the star-studded lineup.

Alan and Daniel will play one of theatre’s most famous double acts in a bittersweet comedy about the relationship between a blind old tyrant named Hamm (played by Alan), his servant (played by Daniel), and his two parents. Clinging stubbornly to their routine of casual savagery and mutual dependence, this star-studded show is sure to be a big crowd pleaser!


James McAvoy in Cyrano De Bergerac

Open now – 29 February

James McAvoy needs no introduction. From the X Men series to Atonement, Split and even West End roles in Ruling Class at Trafalgar Studios, Three Days of Rain at the Apollo Theatre, and Breathing Corpses at the Royal Court, this big screen star is gracing Theatreland once again in Jamie Lloyd’s Cyrano De Bergerac.

Having worked together in 2013 in West End’s Macbeth at Trafalgar Studios, James will be playing the fictionalised account of a real 17th-century French playwrite and author. Cyrano is funny, brash, extremely talented and has a big heart. However, he has an extremely large nose, which causes him to doubt himself. Can he win the heart of the woman he loves or will he allow a society riddled with superficiality and narcissists to get the better of him?



Aimie Atkinson & Danny Mac in Pretty Woman: The Musical


14 February – 2 January 2021

Big news for all hopeless romantics, you’re going to love this one… Landing in the West End this year, just in time for Valentine’s Day is the stage adaption of the iconic film, Pretty Woman: The Musical. Leading the production will be Aimie Atkinson, in the role of Vivian and Danny Mac as Edward.
