Don Quixote
Following a sell-out run at Stratford-upon-Avon, Miguel de Cervantes’ classic tale comes to the West End stage for a strictly limited season at the Garrick Theatre. From 27th October 2018 to 2nd February 2019, Don Quixote stars David Threlfall in the title role with Rufus Hound as his hapless squire, Sancho Panza and is adapted for the stage by James Fenton and directed by Angus Jackson.
Taking up a lance and sword, Don Quixote sets out on a hilarious journey across medieval Spain, defending the helpless and vanquishing the wicked. Hopelessly unprepared and increasingly losing his grip on reality, with each calamitous adventure the two hapless heroes experience, the romantic ideal of Quixote's books seems further away than ever.
Don Quixote by Miguel de Cervantes is considered one of the most popular works of Western literature ever published. Marking 400 years since Cervantes death, the 2016 RSC production at Stratford played to a packed Swan Theatre and received rave reviews from the critics. The original volumes were published by Cervantes between 1605 and 1615, originally titled “The Ingenious Hidalgo Don Quixote of La Mancha”. It was an instant success with the first English translation appearing around 1612 and several English works clearly inspired by the novel appeared soon after. Don Quixote has been adapted as an opera, a ballet and an orchestral suite as well as being produced for the big screen several times. Picasso and Dali produced artworks based on the story and two bronze sculptures of Don Quixote and Sancho Panza stand in the Plaza de España in Madrid.

Glee star, Amber Riley stars in the show as she makes her West End debut. Playing the role of Effie, the American star has tweeted her excitement to be part of the London debut of the show.
Set in 1960’s America, the era of R&B, Dreamgirls is the tale of a girl group from Chicago called “The Dreams”. The girls come across Curtis Taylor, a former used car salesman who wants to be their manager. Although the group finds initial success, rifts form in the band as Curtis tries to replace the current lead singer, Effie, with her best friend, Deena.
Tony and Olivier Award-winning Book of Mormon and Aladdin director, Casey Nicholaw will direct the show, working alongside Friedman who will work as the show’s producer. With a book a lyrics by Tom Eyen and music by Henry Krieger, the show will highlight all of the classic musical numbers that made the production a hit on Broadway in 1981. Originally choreographed by A Chorus Line co-creator, Michael Bennett, the show will keep a vast proportion of the original dance moves.
Dreamgirls includes iconic musical numbers such as “I Am Changing”, “And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going”, “Dreamgirls”, “Listen” and “One Night Only.” Fans of classic R&B and soul music will be blown away by the powerful vocals throughout the show which, judging by Glee, we know Amber Riley can deliver!
As well as winning six Tony Awards in its opening year on Broadway, Dreamgirls was also adapted into a movie. The 2006 film, starring Beyonce Knowles as Deena and Jennifer Hudson as Effie, won supporting actress Hudson an Academy Award, with further nominations commending the show’s musical score.
Don't miss out on your chance to see the incredible Dreamgirls at the Savoy Theatre this winter!

In a bombed out building during the First World War in the Belgian town of Ypres (mis-pronounced Wipers by British soldiers), two officers discover a printing press and create a newspaper for the troops. Far from being a sombre journal about life in the trenches, they produced a resolutely cheerful, subversive and very funny newspaper designed to lift the spirits of the men on the front line.
During the battle of Ypres in 1916, members of 12th Battalion, The Sherwood Foresters came across a printing press in an abandoned building. A sergeant who had been a printer in peacetime salvaged it and found it to be in working order. Although many of the contributor’s names have not been recorded, the editor was Captain F. J. Roberts and the sub-editor was Lieutenant J. H. Pearson. The newspaper they produced was archly satirical including poems, reflections, in-jokes and lampoons of the current military situation.

Following on from his success with The Producers, Mel Brooks has adapted another of his films for the stage in Young Frankenstein. Considered by many, including Brooks himself, to be his finest film, Young Frankenstein is a pastiche of 1930's horror films. The film starred Gene Wilder and Peter Boyle and was nominated for several Academy Awards.
Following the death of mad scientist, Dr. Victor von Frankenstein, his castle is inherited by his American grandson Frederick. However, Frederick does not want to be associated with his grandfather's work, even insisting his name is pronounced "Fronkensteen". Frederick travels to Transylvania to inspect the property, leaving behind his fiancée Elizabeth. Arriving in Transylvania he meets his assistants Igor and Inga and the mysterious Frau Blucher. Despite insisting he has no interest in the re-animation of dead tissue, he resolves to continue his grandfather's experiments after he finds Victor's notes. His activities arouse the suspicion of the villagers and local police chief Inspector Kemp. Thanks to Igor's bungling the experiment goes wrong, with disastrous consequences.
The 1974 film Young Frankenstein was a critical and commercial hit and was voted into Total Film magazine's readers' "List of the 50 Greatest Comedy Films of All Time" as well as winning countless other industry awards. Following the runaway success of The Producers when it was adapted for the stage, the decision to adapt Young Frankenstein was an easy one to take for Mel Brooks and his creative team. Young Frankenstein ran for 485 performances on Broadway and toured twice around the United States to favorable reviews. It will make its eagerly-anticipated West End debut in October 2017.
