VIDEO: Author Hilary Mantel on Bringing WOLF HALL to TV, Broadway
Broadway's WOLF HALL: PARTS 1 & 2 and PBS's Masterpiece mini-series starring Mark Rylance are taking the Tudors onstage and on-screen at the same time. WOLF HALL and BRING UP THE BODIES author Hilary Mantel stopped by PBS NEWSHOUR this week to discuss both projects, and you can watch the interview below!
After critically acclaimed and sold out engagements at the Royal Shakespeare Company's Swan Theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon and at the Aldwych Theatre in London, the theatrical event WOLF HALL: PARTS 1 & 2 began performances on Broadway on Friday, March 20, 2015, at the Winter Garden Theatre. OPENING DAY will be held on April 9, 2015. The production is directed by Olivier Award nominee Jeremy Herrin, who makes his New York City directing debut.
WOLF HALL: PARTS 1 & 2, which explores the deceit, betrayal, and intrigue of the court of Henry VIII, is written by Dame Hilary Mantel and adapted 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.Buy Tickets to Wolf Hall: Parts 1 & 2 - click here.
