It has been announced that Shakespeare in Love will shortly extend its booking period at the Noël Coward Theatre to 10th January 2015. 76,000 extra tickets will be released for the new booking period on Monday 1st September.
Based on the Academy Award®-winning screenplay by Marc Norman and Tom Stoppard, Shakespeare in Love has been adapted for the stage by Lee Hall (Billy Elliot). Directed by Declan Donnellan, the show features a company of 30 actors and musicians. Tom Batemen and Lucy Briggs-Owen star in the leading roles. Design is by Cheek by Jowl's Nick Ormerod.
According to the New York Post, Shakespeare in Love could transfer to Broadway during the 2015-16 season. Michael Riedel claims that as the show is doing "brisk business" in London, producers Sonia Friedman and Disney are "plowing ahead with plans for New York."
