Kenneth Branagh, Jude Law and Derek Jacobi will join Donmar Warehouse a.d. Michael Grandage for a new venture, a year-long, four-play Donmar season at the West End’s 750-seat Wyndham’s Theater.
Commencing September 2008, the season will match the Donmar’s top ticket price of £32.50 (US$65.90) with 130 seats per performance at £10 (about US$20). This undercuts standard West End prices which average a £50 (approximately US$100) top for plays and £60 (about US$120) for tuners.
The plays, all four of which will be available in a subscription season — a rarity in London — will include Jude Law starring in “Hamlet” directed by Branagh from May 29-Aug. 22, 2009.
