As previously reported, Simon Callow's production of Being Shakespeare will be taking over from Mojo, which closed at the Harold Pinter Theatre last week.

The show returns to the West End following its run at the Trafalgar Studios and subsequent Off-Broadway transfer in 2012.

Previously entitled Shakespeare – The Man from Stratford, the show which has twice earned Callow a WhatsOnStage Award nomination for Best Solo Performance, brings Shakespeare's characters to life and presents the real man behind the legend.

The production is running for three weeks, from 26 February until 15 March. With such a short run the rumours are stirring as to what will follow the one man show, with a popular belief being a Trevor Nunn production, although further details have not yet been announced.
