Who will replace the show’s co-creator and role originator in the West End? Well, there may be a clue in our 1st Night Photos coverage of this week’s premiere. The League of Gentleman’s Steve Pemberton’s attendance we reckon was down to more than just idle curiosity! As part of the League, Pemberton won the Perrier Award for comedy, a BAFTA and the Golden Rose of Montreux Award. The troupe’s acclaimed, cult BBC2 TV show spawned two live stage productions and a feature film, The League of Gentlemen's Apocalypse. Pemberton’s other credits include Match Point, Lassie and The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy on film, and Art (with his fellow Leaguers, Mark Gatiss and Reece Shearsmith), The Rocky Horror Show (which he narrated) and The Exonerated.
