You've read the book. Now see the story come to life on stage. Great Expectations, based on the classic Charles Dickens novel will begin performances at the Vaudeville Theatre in London on February 1. As of right now the show is scheduled to play thru June 1. Although if reviews are good I would not be surprised if it extends. Now for those of you who are not familiar with the story here is a brief synopsis from the show's website.
For the first time in the West End, Great Expectations is presented as part of the international Dickens bicentenary celebrations. Graham McLaren's 'outstanding', 'haunting' and 'utterly brilliant' production brings some of the most memorable characters ever created to life. The beautiful, chilling Estella, the terrifying convict Magwitch, the manipulative Jaggers, the tragic and mysterious Miss Havisham and Pip looking back on his young self - a boy with 'great expectations'.
Now I first read the book in high school but to be completely honest I don't remember that much about it. I was more of a fan of A Christmas Carol and of course Oliver as I performed in the musical version of the show in both high school as well as an Off-Off Broadway production here in New York. By the way for those of you looking to get tickets to this show or any other show in London simply give us a call and we will take care if the rest. Get your tickets to see Great Expectations at the Vaudeville Theatre in London. Until next time theatre fans.
