King Lear again: for 100 performances at the Duke of York’s Theatre in London where I made my West End debut in 1964. It’s a small theatre but we shall make it even more intimate by removing half the stalls seats, so everyone is closer to the actors. There will be 100 tickets for each show under £30 each. If you are between 16-25 you can sit on the front or back rows for £5. First performance is 11th July. Get booking today! https://www.kinglearwestend.com/

#OTD sixteen years ago, 19 December 2001, a film made in New Zealand was released in cinemas worldwide. Nobody knew if it would be a hit or a flop. "The Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring" went on to reach millions of fans and remains one of the most beloved pictures of the 21st century.
