Hitchcock Blonde to transfer to Lyric Theatre 16 June 03
It has been announced that Terry Johnson's new play Hitchcock Blonde, which is currently playing at the Royal Court theatre to 24 May 03, will transfer to the Lyric Theatre, Shaftesbury Avenue opening on 25 June 03, following previews from 16 June 03.
Note: Booking is not open for this production at the Lyric yet!!!
The original Royal Court cast is expected to transfer with the show: Rosamund Pike (Blonde) , Fiona Glascott (Nicola), David Haig (Alex), William Hootkins (Hitch), Owen McDonnell (Husband)
The play opened to terrific notices from the popular press last month: THE STAGE says, "The plotting is often puzzling but there is plenty of entertainment among the thrills" THE GUARDIAN says, "It pleasurably combines Hitchcock's eerie romanticism with a study in erotic obsession." DAILY TELEGRAPH says, "It's ambitious, ingenious and intriguing." THE TIMES says, "Prepare yourself for plenty of educated fun." TIME OUT says, "Dazzlingly clever and often wonderfully funny."
It is directed by Terry Johnson, designed by William Dudley, with lighting by Simon Corder.
