It’s the delicious new musical that became the crème de la crème of Broadway, but Sara Bareilles has confirmed Waitress is looking to transfer to the West End....
UK premiere of Rabbit Hole at the Hampstead Theatre
It has been announced that the UK premiere of David Lindsay-Abaire's Pulitzer Prize-winning play Rabbit Hole will run at the Hampstead Theatre in north London from 29 January to 5 March 2016, with an official opening on 4 February 2016.
Described as "a searing and a witty tale of a family wrestling with terrible loss", the drama won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama following its 2006 Broadway premiere. The play was later adapted for film, with Nicole Kidman and Aaron Eckhart amongst the cast. This new production will be directed by Edward Hall.
"Becca and Howie Corbett are a happy suburban family with everything they could want until a shocking and sudden event turns their world upside down and leaves them drifting perilously apart. Riding the turbulence of domestic life, Becca and Howie must find a way back to each other whilst their unpredictable family tries to bridge the ‘infinite space between’, which life changing events create."
David Lindsay-Abaire returns to Hampstead following the success of his comedy 'Good People' starring Imelda Staunton, which transferred to the West End. Other theatre credits include 'Shrek the Musical', 'Fuddy Meers', 'Kimberly Akimbo', 'Wonder of the World' and 'A Devil Inside'.
Casting for the production is yet to be announced.
Tickets for the production are now on sale.
