Photo Flash: LOVE IN IDLENESS Celebrates Opening Night at the Apollo Theatre

Following a sold-out run at the Menier Chocolate Factory, Trevor Nunn's revival of Terence Rattigan's brilliant comedy Love in Idleness has just transferred to the Apollo Theatre. BroadwayWorld has photos from the opening festivities below!

Trevor Nunn directs Eve Best (Olivia Brown), Edward Bluemel (Michael Brown), Helen George (Diana Fletcher), Anthony Head (Sir John Fletcher), Vivienne Rochester (Miss Dell) and Nicola Sloane (Polton/Celia Wentworth).

Returning from Canada after a four-year absence during the war, eighteen-year-old Michael is full of youthful ideology and leftist leanings. But he is shocked to find his widowed mother Olivia is now the mistress of cabinet minister Sir John Fletcher, enjoying a comfortable society life. When Michael and John clash, sparks fly and relationships are tested as everyone learns some difficult lessons in love.
