Sorry to double post but it has been rumoured for a while that The Norman Conquests might be transferring Broadway this year for a run and according to theaternewsonline.com and broadwayworld.com it looks like it’s going to happen!
broadwayworld.com posted a great piece yesterday and the article says
The three plays center on a sexually omnivorous librarian, Norman. Over the course of a weekend, Norman manages to seduce his sister-in-law, his brother-in-law's wife and, in the end, his own estranged wife.
Each play is set in a different part of the same house and examines the same events from different angles.
Lead producer for "The Norman Conquests", Sonia Friedman also told TNO that the entire Old Vic ensemble cast, Amelia Bullmore, Jessica Hynes, Stephen Mangan, Ben Miles, Paul Ritter and Amanda Root will be making the trip to New York.
From the New York Times. "Add the Norman Conquests” to a busy spring season on Broadway. Mr. Ayckbourn’s 1973 comic trilogy of interlocking plays, which was recently revived at the Old Vic Theater in London, is headed to the Circle in the Square Theater with its six-member cast intact, the show’s publicists said in a release. In each of the trilogy’s plays, an assistant librarian named Norman (played by Stephen Mangan) tries to seduce a different woman during a chaotic weekend. The plays, directed by Matthew Warchus (who recently directed the Broadway revival of “Boeing-Boeing”), will run in repertory, and all three will be presented consecutively on Saturdays. “The Norman Conquests” is to begin previews on April 7 and open April 23; its limited run is scheduled through July 25."
I'm doing the same at the moment I can't wait to book the tickets and flights and everything. It sounds like they are not only doing the trilogy days on the Saturday but on the Sunday as well! They are going to be really busy!
Wanted to post as well to say that The Norman Conquests has been nominated in 4 categories for this year’s Olivier Awards! ;D
It has been nominated for
Best Performance In A Supporting Role: Paul Ritter Best Company Performance Best Revival Best Costume Design: Rob Howell
