Kathryn Hunter reprises her acclaimed performance in Shakespeare’s King Lear at the Globe as part of the Southbank theatre’s 25th anniversary season. King Lear tickets are available on London Theatre now. The King Lear play follows a dramatic family feud which spirals out of control. But decisions made between a father and his children won't just affect their relationships. Their conversations could change the world. As King Lear gives up his empire, he divides it amongst his daughters and claims the one who loves him the most will be rewarded with more land. But how do you measure a qualitative state? Expectedly, chaos ensues, and the balance of power shifts in unexpected ways. William Shakespeare’s King Lear play is often performed worldwide, including a notable 2018 production of King Lear starring Ian McKellen. But for this production, the King Lear character is turned on its head, as a woman steps into the lead role. The seemingly shapeshifting actor Kathryn Hunter reprises the monarch role, a role she first played in 1997, 25 years ago. Hunter’s joined by Shakespeare’s Globe artistic director Michelle Terry as Cordelia and the Fool. King Lear in London reunites Hunter with director Helena Kaut-Howson, co-founder of theatre company Complicité and Marcello Magni. You’d be a fool to miss King Lear in London this summer. Experience King Lear in the home of Shakespeare in Britain. Tickets to King Lear are available now. Book your King Lear tickets on London Theatre today.

The rain in Spain… stays mainly in the West End! New York’s Lincoln Center Theater 2018 production of My Fair Lady transfers to the London Coliseum. Grow accustomed to the Lerner and Loewe musical as it returns to the West End for the first time in over two decades. My Fair Lady tickets are available on London Theatre now. The My Fair Lady musical tells of Eliza Doolittle, a Cockney flower girl, who is turned into a lady with the help of phonetics professor Henry Higgins. While she’s being transformed, Eliza loses her accent — and her sense of self. In this revival, Eliza gains a new sense of agency, paving her own path. That’s down to director Bartlett Sher reinterpreting the My Fair Lady ending, and gaining approval from the estates and foundations of My Fair Lady creators Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe. My Fair Lady is based on George Bernard Shaw’s 1913 play, Pygmalion. Adapting Pygmalion into the My Fair Lady musical became Lerner and Loewe’s runaway success; their musical repertoire includes Brigadoon, Camelot, and Gigi. Following a Broadway premiere in 1956, My Fair Lady London eventually came to its London setting in 1958, and has since been revived in the West End three times. This London revival will be the first in 21 years — Martine McCutcheon and Jonathan Pryce starred in My Fair Lady in 2001. This production of My Fair Lady premiered on Broadway in 2018. My Fair Lady ran on Broadway for 15 months, and was nominated for 10 Tony Awards, winning a Tony for Best Costume Design. Now the show has a renewed energy, so you’ll need to grow accustomed to the musical once more. Tickets to My Fair Lady are available now. Book your My Fair Lady tickets on London Theatre.
