The 2009 London Theatre Season

Well it looks like the second half of the 2008-2009 London Season is shaping up to be one of the best in recent memory. From classic revivals to new works by some of London's most exciting playwrights London theatre has something for everyone. First up is the highly anticipated revival of Samuel Beckett's Waiting For Godot starring Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart. Performances begin April 30 at Theatre Royal Haymarket Company. Now for those of you that can't make it across the pond to see it don't fret. There is another star studded production of this theatre classic starring Tony winners Nathan Lane and Bill Irwin. Performances for the Broadway production of Waiting For Godot begin on April 10 and tickets are already going fast so don't delay.

Next up is a revival of Lionel Bart's beloved musical Oliver. Playing the role of Fagin is Mr. Bean star Rowan Atkinson. Playing the role of Nancy is Jodie Prenger who won the role via the BBC reality show "I'D Do Anything". Oliver has always been one of my favorite shows and the advance word on this production not to mention a healthy advance sale should make Oliver a big winner.

Other shows opening in the next few months include: The Royal Shakespeare Company's revival of its 2005 production of A Midsummer Night's Dream at the Novello, starting Jan 15, followed by The Taming of the Shrew on Feb. 12.There is a new revival of Richard Greenberg's Three Days of Rain at the Apollo beginning on January 30, and a stage adaptation of the film On the Waterfront by its screenwriter Budd Schulberg, directed by Steven Berkoff, beginning Jan. 28 at the Haymarket Theatre.
