Academy Award nominee and Tony Award-winner John Lithgow (Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Shrek, 3rd Rock from the Sun) takes the title role in Arthur Wing Pinero's uproarious Victorian farce, directed by Olivier Award-winner Timothy Sheader (Crazy for You and Into the Woods, Regent's Park Open Air Theatre, London).
In a similar vein to The National Theatre's smash-hit classic comedies, She Stoops to Conquer and London Assurance, The Magistrate is sure to have audiences doubled up with laughter. When amiable magistrate Posket (John Lithgow) marries Agatha (Olivier Award-winner Nancy Carroll, After the Dance), little does he realise she's dropped five years from her age - and her son's. When her deception looks set to be revealed, it sparks a series of hilarious indignities and outrageous mishaps.
Hailed by critics everywhere for its transcendent and deeply emotional performances, Soledad Barrio and Noche Flamenca present flamenco in its purest form - with all the passion and fury.
Formed in 1993 by Artistic Director Martín Santangelo and his wife, Soledad Barrio, Noche Flamenca has developed into one of Spain's most successful flamenco companies. With annual seasons in New York City and Buenos Aires, and return engagements at theatres around the world, the company has a dedicated global audience.
Since its beginning, Noche Flamenca's goal has been to maintain the essence, purity and Integrity of one of the world's most complex and mysterious art forms. All aspects of flamenco -dance, song, and music - are interrelated and given equal weight in Noche Flamenca, creating a true communal spirit within the company - the very heart and soul of flamenco.
