The stages of the West End are filled almost perpetually with shows featuring toe-tapping musical numbers and wildly dramatic performances; thankfully this summer season is no exception. From the familiarity of classic Shakespeare and Wilde to searing performances in new dramas such as Consent, there is lots to look forward to in the world of theatre in the coming months. Below we detail the new and upcoming shows that we are most excited for our Members to view:
Wyndham’s Theatre until 28th July
Seen for the first time in the UK, six Tony Award winner Red is set for a short London run this summer. The play stars award-winning actor Alfred Molina as the abstract painter Mark Rothko and How to Get Away with Murder’s Alfred Enoch as his assistant Ken, a role played originally by Eddie Redmayne. The show follows Rothko in his 1950s New York studio as he navigates the difficult and demanding creation of murals for the Four Seasons, a project that should be his greatest work to date.
