Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead extends at the Old Vic Theatre
Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead extends booking.
The Old Vic Theatre have today announced that they have extended their current revival of Tom Stoppard's comedy Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead due to popular demand, where it is now booking to 6 May 2017.
The production began previews on 25 February with an official opening on 7 March and was previously booking to 29 April 2017. It opened to excellent reviews and was described as "a glistening delight" by London Theatre.
The cast includes Daniel Radcliffe (Rosencrantz), Joshua McGuire (Guildenstern), David Haig (The Player), Louisa Beadel (Player), William Chubb (Polonius), Luke Mullins (Hamlet), Marianne Oldham (Gertrude), and Helena Wilson (Ophelia).
This 50th anniversary production is directed by David Leveaux with design by Anna Fleischle, lighting by Howard Harrison, sound by Fergus O'Hare and music by Corin Buckeridge.
"Against the backdrop of Shakespeare's Hamlet, this mind-bending situation comedy sees two hapless minor characters, Rosencrantz (Daniel Radcliffe) and Guildenstern (Joshua McGuire), take centre stage. Increasingly out of their depth, the young double act stumble their way in and out of the action of this iconic drama. In a literary hall of mirrors, Stoppard’s brilliantly funny, existential labyrinth sees us witness the ultimate identity crisis."
Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead tickets from 1 to 6 May 2017 will go on sale at 12noon on 27 March.
