Just a quick reminder that booking is now open for the West End transfers of Jerusalem and ENRON at the Apollo and Noel Coward theatres.
ENRON, which has done particularly well to get a transfer before it even opens at Sloane Square – although admittedly it did start over to rave reviews at Chichester this summer – runs from 16 Jan to 8 May. I’m not seeing it for a couple of weeks, but Dominic Maxwell over at The Times thought it was worth getting his thesaurus out to call it “nimble, funny, clear-eyed, inventive, informative, exhilarating and then sobering, relentlessly entertaining, surprisingly affecting“, Mr Billington believes it’s a “fantastic theatrical event” and Charles Spencer at the Telegraph thinks it’s worth five stars and is the one to “beat at this year’s theatre awards”. Anything that can get the Telegraph and the Guardian on side must be doing something right: book from the Royal Court.
Jerusalem has been earning similar plaudits and I’m reliably informed it’s absolutely superb. The Independent says bluntly “this one you have to see“, The Whingers “would probably go and sit through all three hours 20 minutes of it again” and Life in the Cheap Seats says it “never wears out its welcome“. Book now from the Royal Court.
