La Bete - 2010 - West End Tickets, News, Info & More

When The Princess (Joanna Lumley) invites street clown Valere (Mark Rylance) to inject some bawdy fun and mischief into her staid acting troupe, she anticipates an exciting creative combination. But the troupe's leader, Elomire (David Hyde Pierce), is an elitist and fervent lover of high-brow theatre who clashes with Valere - a gaudy comic and a fervent lover of ... well, himself. So begins a gloriously witty and wildly hilarious battle of art and egos.



Following its London run, La Bête will transfer to Broadway.
