John Lithgow joins cast of The Magistrate

Hollywood actor John Lithgow is set to join the cast of the National Theatre's Christmas show revival of Sir Arthur Wing Pinero's The Magistrate, in which he will play the title role.

Fans of the classic 1885 play, which is to be directed by Timothy Sheader, should book theatre breaks in London between Wednesday, November 21st and Tuesday, January 22nd to see the brilliantly executed farce based in Victorian London.

Nancy Carroll will star opposite Lithgow as his wife. She returns after winning an Olivier award for her performance in After the Dance.

Lithgow is no stranger to the stage, starring in numerous Broadway productions including M Butterfly, All My Sons and Sweet Smell of Success. He has also appeared in the hit TV shows Dexter and 3rd Rock from the Sun.

The Magistrate will be replacing the National Theatre's cancelled production of The Count of Monte Cristo, which required "more development time".
