BWW TV: The Tudors Takeover Broadway- WOLF HALL Cast Meets the Press!
Wolf Hall: Parts 1 & 2 will begin previews on Friday, March 20, 2015, at the Winter Garden Theatre, with an opening day set for Thursday, April 9, 2015. Wolf Hall: Parts 1 & 2 is based on the best selling novels by Dame Hilary Mantel (Wolf Hall and Bring Up the Bodies) about the deceit, betrayal, and intrigue of the court of Henry VIII, and adapted for the stage by Mike Poulton. This special event invites theatergoers to be part of a unique theatrical experience, similar to the Royal Shakespeare Company's award winning production of The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby.
The company just arrived in New York City to begin rehearsals, and BroadwayWorld's Richard Ridge welcomed them to Broadway at a special press event. Check out interviews with the full gang below!
Wolf Hall: Parts 1 & 2 features a company of more than twenty actors, headed by Ben Miles as Thomas Cromwell, Lydia Leonard as Anne Boleyn, and Nathaniel Parker as King Henry VIII, all under the direction of Olivier Award nominee Jeremy Herrin, who makes his New York City directing début. The Royal Shakespeare Company is appearing with the permission of Actors' Equity Association.
The production features scenic and costume design by Christopher Oram, lighting design by Paule Constable (Part 1) and David Plater (Part 2), sound design by Nick Powell, music by Stephen Warbeck, and movement by Siân Williams.
