Trevor Nunn Plans Haymarket Follies & Full Season???
Date: 16 April 2010
As the former artistic director of both the National Theatre and the Royal Shakespeare Company, Trevor Nunn has had plenty of experience running buildings. So he may enjoy having a short burst of it again in the West End. According to the Daily Mail, he’s the latest director being lined up to oversee a year-long season of in-house productions at the Theatre Royal Haymarket. The Theatre Royal Haymarket Company was launched with great fanfare in September 2007 with the first year under the direction of Jonathan Kent. Last year, Sean Mathias stepped into the breach and scored a huge hit with the Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart-led Waiting for Godot, which won the Whatsonstage.com Award for Theatre Event of the Year, and a critical misfire with Breakfast at Tiffany’s. But other rumoured productions, amongst them an adaptation of All About Eve, failed to materialise with a return season of Godot and received productions, including the current Menier Chocolate Factory transfer of Sweet Charity, filling in. Amongst a long list of shows Nunn is keen to put on is a revival of Stephen Sondheim’s 1971 musical Follies.
