For a brief time in May 2017 the Apollo Theatre in London’s West End welcomes Mikhail Baryshnikov to perform a one man show based on the poetry penned by Joseph Brodsky.
The show itself is performed in Russian and will feature English subtitles for those that do not speak the language. For an intriguing insight into the work of celebrated poet, who died back in the 1990s after a long friendship with Baryshnikov, this will be a must-see show when it runs at the Apollo Theatre in May.
Mikhail Baryshnikov is no stranger to the stage of course, having appeared around the world as a dancer, though he has also made appearances on the screen, perhaps most notably for his Oscar-nominated performance in The Turning Point. Put for this performance in the West End he turns to the work of his friend Joseph Brodsky and brings to London theatre audiences what he brought to those on the other side of the Atlantic and other worldwide locations in 2015 and 2016.
So this will be a welcome appearance for the show in London, with audiences getting the choice of three performances in May shortly after the closure of the play Travesties.
Brodsky/Baryshnikov runs at the Apollo Theatre from Wednesday 3rd May 2017.
