West End Transfer for RSC’s Hamlet

9 Jun

The wait is over!

The RSC announced today that David Tennant’s Hamlet will definitely have a West End transfer and will run at the Novello Theatre from December 3 to January 10, 2009. However, Loves Labours Lost, its repertoire production where Tennant plays Berowne, will not make a transfer to the West End.

Booking details are as follows:

RSC Full Members’ postal booking opens Monday 16th June
RSC Full Members’ telephone and web booking opens Wednesday 25th June
RSC Associate Members’ postal booking opens Monday 30th June
RSC Associate Members’ telephone and web booking opens Wednesday 9th July
Priority booking closes Friday 5th September
Public booking opens Friday 12th September
Novello Box Office 0844 482 5135

Looks like it’s going to be 2 Shakespeare plays for me in December, Derek Jacobi’s Twelfth Night, and now Hamlet!

    many thanks for this!

    was beginning to think would never get a chance to see this! my friend is a member but fear it will be sold out before it even gets to public booking.

    do they have a ticket limit to stop people buying and selling on ebay?

    : – )

    Hi Sarah, thanks for dropping by. As far as I am aware there is a ticket limit per member, just not sure how much it is with the RSC. Public booking doesnt open till September 12 so we have enough time to be able to book ours first!

    Hi – here from a google search, looking for reviews of the show. Do you know if the RSC will be releasing any video of the show?

    Hi there galawatch. All I know is that last year’s RSC production of King Lear will be televised late this year, here’s the link: http://www.theatermania.com/content/news.cfm/story/12573

    We might just hear the same news for Hamlet as well. As for reviews for Hamlet, the run in Stratford-upon-Avon hasn’t started yet.

    I saw Hamlet on the opening night – it was brilliant with super performances especially David Tennant, Patrick Stewart and Mr Davies who played a superb Polonius. Credit to the whole cast and crew for a such a wonderful evening.

    Oh, I had to queue from 7 am outside the theatre to get my tickets for that night but it was worth it. No nasty, money grabbing ticket touts necessary!

    Wow Angel, thanks for sharing this with us. I am so looking forward to see it when it comes to London in December!
