Wolf Hall and Bring Up The Bodies heading for Broadway

Wolf Hall and Bring Up The BodiesWolf Hall – Parts 1 and 2
Part 1 – Wolf Hall
Part 2 – Bring Up the Bodies
Dramatisations of Hilary Mantel’s novels by Mike Poulton

After critically acclaimed runs at both Stratford-upon-Avon and the Aldwych Theatre in London, the hugely successful Wolf Hall: Parts 1 & 2 will arrive on Broadway on the first day of spring, Friday 20th March 2015, and thus officially usher in the spring season. The productions will continue playing to packed houses in the West End until Saturday 4 October.

Based on the best selling novels by Dame Hilary Mantel, Wolf Hall: Parts 1 & 2 will invite theatre goers to be part of a unique theatrical experience, similar to the Royal Shakespeare Company’s award winning production of The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby.

Wolf Hall: Parts 1 & 2 are adapted by Mike Poulton from Hilary Mantel’s Man Booker Prize winning novels, Wolf Hall and Bring Up the Bodies. The plays are based on the deceit, betrayal, and intrigue of the court of Henry VIII. The production features a company of more than twenty actors, headed by Ben Miles as Thomas Cromwell, Lydia Leonard as Anne Boleyn, and Nathaniel Parker as King Henry VIII, all under the direction of Olivier Award nominee Jeremy Herrin, who makes his New York City directing début. The Royal Shakespeare Company is appearing with the permission of Actors’ Equity Association.

The production will also feature scenic and costume design by Christopher Oram, lighting design by Paule Constable (Part 1) and David Plater (Part 2), sound design by Nick Powell, and music by Stephen Warbeck.

The opening day of Wolf Hall: Parts 1 & 2 will be held on Thursday 9th April 2015 at the Winter Garden Theatre (1634 Broadway, between 50th and 51st Streets).
