MARY POPPINS
The Prince Edward Theatre
from 23rd October 2019
I was five when the American film version of Mary Poppins was released, and I still remember much of that first visit to an ABC cinema, not least the brilliant songs. London has reclaimed its favourite nanny with a sumptuous stage adaptation, one that took veteran producer Sir Cameron Mackintosh over ten years to put together, and that comes home for the first time in almost 15 years.

COME FROM AWAY
Phoenix Theatre
Booking to 2020
Come From Away has, for me, been the surprise hit of the year, building a large audience through word of mouth well before opening night. It’s a tale of spontaneous, life-affirming human kindness set against the backdrop of the tragic events of 9/11. A Broadway hit before its arrival in London, the show is a welcome tonic during divisive times.

IAN MCKELLEN ON STAGE
Harold Pinter Theatre
20 Sep 2019 – 5 Jan 2020
In his 80th year he generously and whole-heartedly delivers a not-for-profit, one-man show that has already raised money at 80 theatres nationwide – a unique celebration of theatre filled with warmth, intelligence and charisma.

DEATH OF A SALESMAN
The Piccadilly Theatre
Booking from 23 October to 4 January 2020
Arthur Miller’s classic exploration of the American Dream undergoes a stunning reinvention in the experienced hands of the directing team behind the hit revival of Angels in America at the National last year. The play transfers to the Piccadilly Theatre after a sold-out run at the Young Vic and, for the first time, we view Miller’s story from the perspective of an African-American family.
