Billy Crudup to make West End debut in 'Harry Clarke'
The show was first performed by Crudup off Broadway in 2017. He reprised the role in 2018, also off Broadway, and at Berkley Repertory Theatre last year.
The Morning Show and Almost Famous star Billy Crudup will make his West End debut in David Cale’s comedic thriller Harry Clarke. The production opens at the Ambassadors Theatre on 9 March.
The one-man play was first performed by Crudup off Broadway in 2017 and follows a midwestern barista who charms his way into a wealthy New York family. Crudup reprised his performance at the Minetta Lane Theatre in New York in 2018, as well as at Berkley Repertory Theatre in California last year.
Crudup said: “I love London and I have loved seeing theatre in London for decades. West End theater-goers are some of the most discerning, intelligent and hungry audiences in the world. I’m grateful to be given the opportunity to share the work Leigh, David, myself and all our producers have created on the London stage.”
The creative team includes Leigh Silverman (director), Alexander Dodge (set designer), Kaye Voyce (costume designer), Alan C Edwards (lighting designer), and Bart Fasbender (sound designer). Original songs are by Cale, vocal coaching by Deborah Lapidus, and dialect coaching by Deborah Hecht and Jessica Berman.
Harry Clarke runs at the Ambassadors Theatre until 11 May.
