Here are just a few of the shows coming to London’s West End in 2016, just a quick stroll away from serviced apartments Marylebone...
Lazarus by David Bowie is being tipped for a West End release, with cast, dates and venue yet to be confirmed. The show has its world premiere Off Broadway on December 7th, 2015, and is inspired by The Man Who Fell to Earth. Particularly in light of Bowie’s recent passing, the show is sure to be a sell-out.
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is a play based on a new and original story written by JK Rowling. Presented in two parts, with the intention that they be viewed in order and consecutively either on the same day or over two evenings, the play tells the story of the adult Harry Potter, who is an employee of the Ministry of Magic, and his son Albus who struggles with his family legacy. The play opens in late July at the Palace Theatre, with bookings opening soon.
Game of Thrones’ Jon Snow, actor Kit Harrington, will play the lead in Doctor Faustus at the Duke of York’s Theatre from April 2016 for a limited run. Faustus makes a pact with the Devil to sell his soul for the power to use black magic for any purpose. Becoming a world renowned celebrity with all the accompanying trappings is not, however, what he expected it to be. Was it worth it? With a dose of black comedy and a modern perspective, this is a play not to be missed.
The Addams Family comes to St James Theatre from Broadway later in 2016, with dates and cast yet to be announced and bookings to be opened soon. It is a musical comedy that will feature an original storyline based on the characters created by Charles Addams. A grownup Wednesday has a new and normal boyfriend with whom she is in love, but how is she to introduce him and his parents to Morticia and Gomez?
