A production of Charles III, which had a successful run on London's West End, will transfer to Broadway this spring, pending availability of a theater -- speculated to be a Shubert-owned house. Rupert Goold's direction and star Tim Pigott-Smith are likely to transfer with the show. In an imagined future, Mike Bartlett's play looks at the humans beneath the crown in a world in which Queen Elizabeth II has died and her son, the current Prince Charles, becomes King.
The West End productions of Wolf Hall and Bring Up the Bodies will also be transferring to Broadway, as was previously reported on this site two weeks ago. The two shows will play in rep at the Winter Garden Theatre under the title Wolf Hall: Parts 1 & 2. Previews will begin March 20th and open April 9th. Some of the London cast will be transferring with the show, including Ben Miles, Nathaniel Parker, and Lydia Leonard. Three-time Tony-winner Mark Rylance will star in a television adaptation of Wolf Hall in the upcoming few months.
