Opening: Savion Glover & Pike’s Old Vic Gaslight

By • West End
Amongst the major openings in London this week are:

OPENING WEDNESDAY, 13 June 2007, American tap dance legend Savion Glover pays his first-ever visit to the UK, performing live for four days only at Sadler’s Wells. Glover made his Broadway debut at the tender age of 12, winning his first film role a year later alongside Gregory Hines and Sammy Davis Jr in 1989’s Tap. Savion Glover has gone on to become a US dance legend. Now, the master of tap visits the UK for the very first time. In 1996, he won the Tony Award for Best Choreography for Bring in ‘Da Noise, Bring in ‘Da Funk. He was also Tony-nominated for Best Actor in a Musical for his starring performance in the show.

OPENING THURSDAY, 14 June 2007 (previews from 7 June), Rosamund Pike (pictured), Kenneth Cranham and Andrew Woodall star in Peter Gill’s revival of Patrick Hamilton’s Victorian London-set thriller Gaslight, which runs at the Old Vic until 18 August (See News, 4 Apr 2007).

While Jack Manningham (Woodall) is out on the town each evening, his wife Bella (Pike), stays at home alone, believing she’s losing her mind: she can’t explain the disappearance of familiar objects, the footsteps overhead or the ghostly flickering of living room gaslights. However, questions about Jack’s behaviour and true identity are aroused following the unexpected arrival of Detective Rough (Cranham). Ingrid Bergman won an Oscar for her performance as Bella in George Cukor’s 1944 film version.
