Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is the hottest ticket in the West End, with tickets ‘disapparating’ in an instant whenever they are released, thanks to glowing reviews and an extraordinary worldwide interest that shows no sign of slowing. So, you may need a magic wand to get seats, but wizard fans of all ages will enjoy the ride when they do.
Two Tom Stoppard plays are being staged this springtime in London, both with starry casting.
First up is Travesties, which has transferred from a sell-out run at the Menier Chocolate Factory. Starring the versatile actor Tom Hollander (whose range in the past has included the lovable vicar in BBC’s Rev and the sinister henchman in the BBC hit The Night Manager last year). Here he plays a British diplomat in Zurich during the First World War, whose circle include Lenin, Dadaist Tristan Tzara (played by Freddie Fox) and James Joyce among others. It’s directed by Patrick Marber (also directing his own play Don Juan in Soho starring David Tennant this spring).
The Science Museum’s big spring/summer exhibition, Robots, looks at human fascination with the machines throughout history, and features 100 different robots from a 16th-century mechanical monk to Cyan, a huge humanoid robot built in 1957.
The exhibition is set over five different time periods showing how robots have changed over time, and influences have included religious belief, the industrial revolution and 20th-century popular culture.
America After the Fall: Painting in the 1930s is the Royal Academy’s headline exhibition of the spring, exploring US art after the Wall Street Crash of 1929.
The centrepiece of the exhibition is Grant Wood’s iconic American Gothic painting from 1930, depicting a farming couple from the Mid West (although if you visit you will find out that the painting is not at all a straight portrait). It is the first time Wood’s painting has ever left the US and so a rare opportunity for us to see one of the world’s most recognisable works of art.
He had a star turn as rogue stormtrooper Finn in the last Star Wars movie (The Force Awakens), and now young London actor John Boyega is leading the cast, in his stage debut, on the Old Vic stage in Woyzeck by Georg Büchner.
The theatre is putting on a new version of the play by Jack Thorne, setting it in 1980s Berlin with Boyega playing a young soldier trying to build a better future for his child with the woman he loves.
