"A Life In The Theatre" extends 1 week to 30 April

David Mamet's comedy A Life In The Theatre has been extended by 1 week to 30 April 2005.

The play opened at the Apollo Theatre, Shaftesbury Avenue on 2 Feb 2005, following previews from 27 Jan, to reasonable notices from the popular press: BENEDICT NIGHTINGALE for THE TIMES says, "DAVID MAMET’S Life in the Theatre lasts 85 minutes, but, unlike some pieces that are aeons longer, it packs three plays into its short, enjoyable span." PAUL TAYLOR for THE INDEPENDENT says, "Patrick Stewart is wonderful....Unfortunately, neither the excellence of the directing, nor the slow-burn drollness of Joshua Jackson's performance can disguise the anorexic dramaturgy that is on offer here. You leave the theatre thinking: where's the show?" MICHAEL BILLINGTON for THE GUARDIAN says, "Perfectly enjoyable." CHARLES SPENCER for THE DAILY TELEGRAPH says, "Proves funny, affecting and, by Mamet's macho standards, unexpectedly tender."

Directed by Lindsay Posner, the play features Patrick Stewart as 'Robert' and Joshua Jackson as 'John'

A play about two actors, stage veteran 'Robert' and aspiring young newcomer 'John'. Set both on stage and behind the scenes in a fading small town rep, the piece follows their friendship and their rivalry as they battle with the cruel uncertainties of their profession.

Looking for the best seats...
