New Production Announced
I just read an article online that Mark Rylance (star of the recent Broadway revival of "Boeing Boeing") and David Hyde Pierce will be returning to Broadway in a production of David Hirson's "La Bete", which is expected to play a limited run in London's West End (I'm guessing over the summer and/or the early fall) before transferring to Broadway this autumn. Joanna Lumley, a London stage vet known in the US for the TV show "Absollutely Fabulous" will make her Broadway debut in this production, which is to be directed by Matthew Warchus, who directed (and was a double directing nominee at last year's Tonys for) last year's productions of "G-d of Carnage" and "The Norman Conquests". With the talent attached to this production, I am very excited to see this show, and can't wait till it comes to Broadway.
