Brick by Brick


The Donmar Warehouse in London is standing upon firmer ground each day in it’s quest to deliver high quality productions at prices that are affordable to a wide audience, while at the same time building a name for itself that it can truly be proud of. A large part of it’s success it seems, lies in the building blocks of big names willingness to work for less, at least while they’re building the house. These big names seem to be keeping it moving forward, building upon success after success. Kenneth Branagh’s Ivanov was lauded as a great triumph for the theatre and they currently have five productions running, two in rehearsal and five more in pre-production, which is impressive if only for the small staff running it. Currently Judy Dench can be seen in “Madame de Sade” and Derek Jacobi in “Twelfth Night” at the Wyndham’s Theatre – while “A Doll’s House” and “Hamlet” are in rehearsal. Michael Grandage, the theatre’s Artistic Director is set to Direct Jude Law as he steps into the shoes of Olivier, Gielgud, Burton and Branagh before him, playing the coveted role of Shakespeare’s Prince of Denmark in Hamlet. The play opens May 29 and runs through August 22nd.
