LONDON — Jude Law, Judi Dench and Daniel Radcliffe are among the A-list actors signed up for a new London theater troupe, which hopes to attract new theatergoers by offering hundreds of 10 pounds ($16) tickets for each performance.
Simon Russell Beale, Sheridan Smith, David Walliams and Ben Whishaw are also part of the company formed by director Michael Grandage, who led the award-winning Donmar Warehouse troupe for a decade until early 2012.
On Friday Grandage announced a five-play, 15-month season beginning in December with a production of the musical “Privates on Parade.”
Future productions include new play “Peter and Alice” by John Logan; Shakespeare’s “Henry V” with Law in the title role; “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”; and a production of Martin McDonagh’s “The Cripple of Inishmaan” starring Radcliffe.
