New Shows Announced at the Old Vic
The Old Vic theatre today announce Part Two of Matthew Warchus’ second exciting season.
The theatre announced the 50th-anniversary production of Tom Stoppard’s Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead starring Daniel Radcliffe and Joshua McGuire; the world premiere of Girl From the North Country written and directed by Conor McPherson with music and lyrics by Bob Dylan; and the return of the much-loved Olivier-nominated Dr. Seuss’s The Lorax.
On announcing the shows Matthew said:
‘For almost two hundred years people have come together at The Old Vic to watch and listen to stories. Hundreds of thousands of people had their first experience of theatre in this building. Look at this country’s leading theatre, dance and opera companies and chances are there’s a thread to be found that leads you back to The Old Vic. It has been, in many ways, the cradle of British theatre, nurturing the companies, showcasing creative vision and building the audiences that together make our performing arts some of the greatest in the world.
At The Old Vic we believe that stories are indispensable. That people of every age, from every walk of life and background, sitting together watching a story unfold has a hugely positive personal, social, political and cultural effect. I am proud to be announcing these very different shows at The Old Vic. They round out my second season in which we continue to promote this iconic building as a gateway for as wide a range of people as possible to experience the breadth of what theatre can be and do.’
In addition to the three main house shows there is also great new work for families, late night music and comedy and the return of Voices Off, our series of talks, conversations and debates.
Tickets go on general sale on Wednesday 2 November at 12 noon.
