New Bridge Theatre
The London theatre has always been a balancing act between art and show business; we know that the most exciting shows can be both challenging and popular.
Sir Nicholas Hytner
A new theatre has opened in London right next to Tower Bridge, the first big commercial theatre to open in the capital for 80 years. With ex-National Theatre boss Sir Nicholas Hytner at the helm and a starry line-up for its inaugural season, it's likely to be the hot destination this year.
The 900-seat venue has a jam-packed calendar of shows for 2018 with Alan Bennett’s new play Allelujah! which follows an NHS hospital at the brink of closure currently on stage.
Remember the name Barney Norris. He’s a new writer in his twenties, but already outstanding.
Allelujah! — 11 July to 28 September
A Very Very Very Dark Matter — 10 October to 6 January 2019
