McQueen transferring to Theatre Royal Haymarket

Following its premiere at the St James Theatre earlier this year, it has been announced that McQueen is transferring to the Theatre Royal Haymarket.

The production will open on 27th August (previews from 13th August) for a limited run until 7th November 2015. 

Written by James Phillips and directed by John Caird, the production stars Stephen Wight in the title role. Carly Bawden is replacing Dianna Agron as Dahlia. Scenes have been rewritten and an interval has been added. 

Reprising their roles as Isabella Blow and Arabella will be Tracy-Ann Oberman and Laura Rees respectively. Michael Bertenshaw will be joining the cast as Mr Hitchcock. Further casting to be confirmed.

Phillips said, "I’m so delighted to have McQueen in the West End, and to take this opportunity to refine some things from the original production. 

"For me, it’s also thrilling that we’re going into the Theatre Royal Haymarket, as it was in this theatre that I had my first ever professional job, a few months after leaving college. I was a peasant – a silent role! – in Miss Julie starring Christopher Eccleston, Aisling O’Sullivan and Maxine Peake that Thelma Holt produced. It really is one of the most beautiful theatres I’ve ever been in.”
