The Libertine Plays London's Haymarket Theatre In September 2016

London bound?  If you're going to visit London in September 2016 have I got a treat for you.

I just found out that one of the great theatre works, The Libertine, is being revived at the Haymarket Theatre.  The show originally played in 1994 and was written by Stephen Jeffreys.  Mr. Jeffreys also wrote Backbeat, a Beatles story some years back.  This staging will be directed by award-winning Terry Johnson.  The show will play a strictly limited engagement of 10 weeks only and begin performances on September 22, 2016.

Stage and screen actor Dominic Cooper, who appeared on the big screen in Captain America: The First Avenger, as well as the movie version of the West End musical Mamma Mia! will star in The Libertine.  Mr. Cooper has also performed on stage with the National Theatre as well as the Royal Shakespeare Company.  It's going to be a real treat to see him in this staging of The Libertine for sure.

Mr. Cooper will play the role of John Wilmot, the second Earl of Rochester in 1670's London.  He's a writer who develops quite a reputation for his work and his behavior as the audience gets a look into the world of hedonism.  It all takes place in the era of King Charles II.  To complicate matters, John Wilmot meets an actress with her own interesting ambitions.  If you go to the show, I promise an interesting time as you watch her turn his entire world upside down.
