Last year audiences wanting to pick up Theatre Tickets to witness Antony Sher in “Broken Glass” had to make the journey to the Tricycle Theatre in North London. This year audiences in the West End will finally get their own chance to see the production as it is set to transfer to the Vaudeville Theatre following a summer return to the Tricycle. With Sher returning to the role of Philip in the production, Tara Fitzgerald is set to take on the role of his wife Sylvia, with additional cast members in the forms of Stanley Townsend, Brian Protheroe, Caroline Loncq and Suzan Sylvester.
Sir Antony Sher is an acclaimed actor, whose work has spanned the stage and the screen, earning him awards and recognition along the way. For the screen his work has included “The Wind in the Willows”, “The History Man” and “Home”, whilst his high profile stage work has included “Richard III” for the RSC and the Barbican Theatre in 1984 and “Stanley” at the Cottesloe National Theatre in 1997, both of which earned him Laurence Olivier Awards for Best Actor. His other theatre credits include “The Tempest” at the Courtyard Theatre in 2008, “Primo” at the Cottesloe National Theatre in 2004 and “I.D” at the Almeida Theatre in 2003.
In Arthur Miller’s “Broken Glass” London theatre audiences are introduced to the characters of Philip and Sylvia – a Jewish couple who are living in 1930s New York City – as they deal with the effects of Kristallnacht in Nazi Germany. This causes particular grief for Sylvia and the couple decide to seek the help of a therapist (Townsend), which not only delves into her troubles regarding the events abroad, but also throws some life on their relationship at the same time.
Stanley Townsend is also an acclaimed actor with an abundance of credits to his name, from theatre work in the like of “The Weir” at the Royal Court and “Phedre” at The National Theatre to television programmes like “Sherlock” and films like “Happy-Go-Lucky”, “Flawless” and “The Libertine”.
“Broken Glass” returns to the Tricycle Theatre in the summer and then runs at the Vaudeville Theatre from Friday 16th September 2011 (previews from Wednesday 14th September 2011) to Saturday 10th December 2011.
