The Old Vic has cheered up the day for theatregoers with a tweet:
“Need some good news to brighten your Monday? Due to popular demand #AllMySons will now play from 13 April, meaning you have one extra chance to enjoy the show! Tickets for this additional performance are on sale now”
This play is going to be great! I’m waiting for the rehearsal photos now!
Great news today from What’s On Stage: they announced that the play All My Sons at the Old Vic Theatre will be broadcast live around the world on 14 May 2019 with National Theatre Live and, with it, the full cast!
Oliver Johnstone will play George Deever and he will be part of an amazing ensemble: Sally Field, Bill Pullman, Bessie Carter, Jenna Coleman, Kayla Meikle, Colin Morgan, Sule Rumi.
Arthur Miller’s masterpiece will be directed by Jeremy Herrin and it will run from 15 April to 8 June 2019.
Congratulations to Oliver for his new role, it sounds like an amazing production! It’s his first time performing at the Old Vic.
I’ll look forward to stuff about the play and will keep you updated.
If I could suggest Oliver Johnstone for a role (again), after the German-American photographer Horst P. Horst (see my 31th July 2015 blog), he should be cast to play the Russian Composer Modest Mussorgsky as a young artist. Can you see the resemblance in the photo below? (There at 17 in 1856).
He had a tragic life, but somehow romantic and he would be a great character for a movie, a TV series or a play.
He is best known for his piece “Night On Bald Mountain“, 1867, later part of the soundtrack of the Walt Disney animated movie “Fantasia“, 1940.
