Philadelphia, Here I Come! to open in the West End
Date Posted: 30/04/12
To continue her first season as artistic director of The Donmar Warehouse, Josie Rourke has announced a new production of Brian Friel's Philadelphia, Here I Come!
The show will open on Tuesday, July 31st, but people booking theatre breaks in London will be able to catch the performance until Saturday, September 22nd.
Rory Keenan and Paul Reid will both play Gar O'Donnell, acting out his different private and public persona.
The production follows Gar as he leaves his life in Ireland and makes his way to the US and, hopefully, fame and fortune.
Focusing on his last night before departure, Gar will be forced to confront his ideas about the future and all that he is leaving behind.
Philadelphia, Here I Come! will be previewing from Thursday, July 26th, with tickets available to book from Wednesday, June 6th.
Performances are every night at 19.30 (BST), with the exception of Sundays, with matinees at 14:30 on Thursdays and Saturdays.
