What is the news on this?

Have just read about it and it possibly coming to the West End but can't find reviews or anything from Dublin???

I would love to see this on stage, the film is one of my all time faves.

I read that The Wyndham's was being considered and I think a three month run from September-December then RSC December-March would work or they could opt for The Garrick once The Mysteries finishes its run.

I only saw the movie for the first time about 3 months ago.
I would love to see it on stage but is it a draw?

I heard the Wyndham's and the Garrick. I reckon the Wyndham's is most likely.

It's actually booked? Cool!

Actually, I don't know why I'm so excited. I've actually never been to the Wyndham's and Shawshank is definitely not the show to lure me in.

OMG LP, the Wyndams is the wedding cake of all theatres. The most stunning house tabs you will ever see!

Oh my Lord, it's so opulent! I bet that's what Judi Dench's womb looks like.

Judi? Judi Dench? Dame Judi Dench?

Oh, Dame Judi, it's an honour to meet you. Funnily enough, I've just been admiring some photos of your womb.

QUERNS! D:

Totally going to see this. It has long been one of my favourite books, and I like seeing plays at the Wyndham's. :3
