“A Dish of Tea With Dr Johnson” has abundant charm and atmosphere, making it yet another show at the Arts Theatre to excel in presenting something unique and insightful. The West End venue is regularly presenting shows with plenty to offer and audiences arriving at the London theatre will undoubtedly agree that this remains the case. So in a year when the venue is also welcoming shows such as “Park Avenue Cat” and one-off shows such as “Face to Face at the Arts: Alison Steadman”, “A Dish of Tea With Dr Johnson” demonstrates London theatre at its best.
The show allows those with Theatre Tickets the chance to witness actors such as Ian Redford and Russell Barr take to the stage, the former of which portrays Dr Johnson himself. The story is adapted from “The Life of Samuel Johnson” and “The Journal of a Tour to the Hebrides with Russell Barr, Ian Redford and Max Stafford Clarke” and offers an insight into the famous doctor himself – the man behind the dictionary – and also manages to give a glimpse to his outlook on the world around him. So it is not one to be missed and this is exemplified by the positive reviews it has received during previous appearances around the country.
Ian Redford is a British actor who has appeared in a range of shows and on the stage, with credits that include the long-running soap “Coronation Street” in the mid-2000s and “EastEnders” in the early 1990s. As such he is an acclaimed actor and one whose work has been seen for many decades.
Equally impressive is the work of Russell Barr, whose credits also span the stage and screen. London theatre audiences could recognise him from his roles in television shows like “Auf Wiedersehen, Pet” and “Casualty”, though he has also appeared in theatrical productions such as “Voices from Spain” at the Royal Court Theatre, “Blown” at the Theatre Royal, Plymouth and “Sisters, Such Devoted Sisters” at the Drill Hall.
The production also stars Trudie Styler and is directed by Max Stafford Clarke.
“A Dish of Tea With Dr Johnson” makes its appearance at the Arts Theatre from Thursday 1st September 2011 to Saturday 24th September 2011.
