RSC’s Wolf Hall to conquer Broadway in 2015

Ben Miles in Wolf Hall

The hugely successful Wolf Hall is to cross the pond this spring after critically acclaimed runs at both Stratford-upon-Avon and the Aldwych Theatre in London.

Now known as Wolf Hall: Parts 1 & 2, the shows will arrive on Broadway on March 20 and, thus officially, usher in the spring season.

The productions will continue playing to packed houses in the West End until this coming Saturday.

Based on the best selling novels by Hilary Mantel, 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.

It is directed by Olivier Award nominee Jeremy Herrin, who makes his New York City directing début.

The opening day of Wolf Hall: Parts 1 & 2 will be held on April 9 at the Winter Garden Theatre, New York.
