Photo Flash: First Look at LA BOHEME at Trafalgar Studios 2
The King's Head Theatre, following on from the exciting news that the company will be moving in 2018 to a purpose built, permanent space in the heart of Islington Square, and Joe C Brown will present the West End transfer of their sell-out production of Puccini's La bohème. Adam Spreadbury-Maher, Artistic Director of the King's Head Theatre, will direct the production, which is running at Trafalgar Studios 2 from 6 December 2017 to 6 January 2018.
Adam Spreadbury-Maher and Becca Marriott's reinterpretation of Puccini's classic La bohème is set in present-day East London and delves into the lives and loves of Mimi, Musetta, Ralph and Mark. The production lays bare the damaging effects of co-dependent relationships against a backdrop of spiralling rents and social media. The cast will include Becca Marriott as Mimi, Matthew Kimble and Roger Paterson sharing the role of Ralph, Matthew Palmer and Thomas Isherwood sharing the role of Mark, Honey Rouhani as Musetta, and Lizzie Holmes playing both Mimi and Musetta. The cast will be accompanied by the Musical Director, Panaretos Kryiatzidis, on piano and Alison Holford on cello.
The King's Head Theatre's Artistic Director, Adam Spreadbury-Maher, founded the Cock Tavern Theatre, OperaUpClose and the Hope Theatre before joining the King's Head Theatre as Artistic Director in 2010. In 2009, Adam produced La bohème at the Cock Tavern and Soho Theatres, and won the Olivier Award for Best Opera. Since becoming Artistic Director of the King's Head Theatre, Adam's directing highlights include Trainspotting and the recent 35th-anniversary production of Kevin Elyot's Coming Clean. He recently opened a critically acclaimed new version of Puccini's Tosca.
La bohème is presented by the King's Head Theatre and Joe C Brown in association with In Your Face Theatre, Making Productions and Alex Brown.
