Pigott-Smith Gives Lear to Leeds, Willy Extends in West End???
In the meantime, according to the actor, the Willy Russell Season, which also comprises Meera Syal in Shirley Valentine, may be extending beyond its current booking period, which finishes on 30 October 2010. Pigott-Smith said they’ve been asked to stay on – though with no specifics for exactly how long.
Amongst the other productions that have been rumoured as possible residents in Trafalgar Studio 1 is the recent Landor Theatre revival of musical revue Smokey Joe’s Cafe, starring Over the Rainbow finalist Steph Fearon.
