Staunton on Stage: Celebrating Imelda Staunton's Marvelous Stage Career
Last week, BroadwayWorld reported that Imelda Staunton is set to star in the West End revival of FOLLIES. The show is set to open at the National Theatre as part of the Fall 2017 season. In the revival, directed by Dominic Cooke, Staunton will take on the role of Sally in a cast also includes Janie Dee as Phyllis.
This news comes hot on the heels of last week's announcement that Staunton would be going toe to toe with Game of Thrones star, Conleth Hill, in a West End revival of WHO'S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF? this February.
Imelda Staunton is best known for her work in film and TV, but her stage career has also been wide-ranging. Staunton's theater credits include A Delicate Balance (Almeida Theatre); Entertaining Mr Sloane (Trafalgar Studios); Life x 3, The Beggar's Opera, Schweyk in the Second World War, Guys and Dolls and A Chorus of Disapproval (Olivier Award winner) (all National Theatre); Fair Maid of the West and They Shoot Horses, Don't They? (RSC);The Corn is Green (The Old Vic); The Wizard of Oz (RSC); Uncle Vanya (Vaudeville) and Into the Woods (Phoenix Theatre, Olivier Award winner). She was most recently seen in London in Gypsy.
To celebrate the great Imelda Staunton, BroadwayWorld has decided to look back at some of her finest stage work!
