The Gielgud theatre is your venue for the latest play by the wonderful Jez Butterworth. That's good enough news in itself... but the James Bond director Sam Mendes is set to direct, which makes the news even more thrilling. The Ferryman was a huge hit at the Royal Court theatre, now it's due to transfer once the excellent The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time takes a final bow in early summer 2017.
Company is switching genders! The new production, coming to the Gielgud Theatre in Autumn 2018, is the first of its kind in any Stephen Sondheim show. The only part that stays the same will be played by Broadway legend Patti LuPone, who last played the role in 2011 as a staged concert. Book your tickets, they will sell fast!
