Has the Donmar redeemed itself with The Physicists?
Minsk, 2011: much to be admired if not wholly understood.

Ben Whishaw West End return confirmed

Peter-and-aliceI love @polyg. While I was busy getting my beauty sleep Michael Grandage was announcing (and confirming what was rumoured earlier this year) that Mr Whishaw is going to be back on stage at last, and she was busily buying up tickets.

It is the new John Logan play Peter and Alice which also stars Dame Judi Dench (lovely pic of them together comes from the plays official page). The play is about the real life meeting of Alice in Wonderland and Peter Pan or at least children that inspired the characters when they are grown up. Guess who is playing Peter? 

It runs from the 9 March until June 1 at the Noel Coward Theatre (if you are going on either of those dates let me know as that's when we have tickets).

But it isn't the only exciting announcement by the newly formed Michael Grandage Company. He has also lured Daniel Radcliffe back to the stage in his home town. My London theatre obsession started with seeing Mr Radcliffe in Equus and I've wanted to see him do something else on stage ever since. 

He will star in Michael McDonagh's The Cripple of Innishmaan which runs from June 8 - 31 August. And yes @polyg bought tickets for that too.

I can barely even bring myself to mention that Grandage has also got Sheridan Smith and David Walliams in a Midsummers Night's Dream and Simon Russell Beale in Privates on Parade. Too much excitement for this time of the morning and now I need to go and get ready for work.
