Brantley in London

NY Times theatre critic and resident Anglophile, Ben Brantley, recounts some of the recent shows he saw on his yearly trip to London. Thankfully, this article covers much of the new work being presented opposed to the majority of West End rubbish. He covers Harper Regan, In My Name, The Pitmen Painters and Relocated.

As Brantley says, “Blockbuster musicals and brand-name star power were largely what made last year a record breaker in West End theater attendance. But what this New Yorker abroad has found most revitalizing has been lower-profile productions that insist that the theater still has an active role in the national conversation here.”
