Ilan Goodman Returns to Bad Jews at the Theatre Royal Haymarket
Audiences might remember Bad Jews appearing at the Arts Theatre in recent years, which saw a Jewish family reacting to a death in the family and the prospect of receiving a family heirloom.
Well those that missed out on the show will now have another opportunity to see it as Ilan Goodman once again plays Liam, this time on the stage of the Theatre Royal Haymarket in 2016.
This should be enough to entice a large audience to the West End venue in February as its previous appearances in venues in London and beyond saw it accumulate considerable praise from critics. Its upgrade to a well known West End location is also a sign that producers have faith that the show will once again prove a considerable success.
The story focuses on the mentioned family heirloom following the death of the grandfather. There are plenty of people within the family who feel that they deserve the prize and only time will tell who will get hold of it. As we watch the action take place in a New York apartment, some will make a big push to get their hands on it, whilst others are a little more reluctant to engage in the confrontation.
Theatregoers returning to the show following its previous run will immediately notice the return of Llan Goodman. The performer is no stranger to the stage even beyond Bad Jews as he has previously appeared in Paper Dolls at the Tricycle Theatre, Chicken Soup With Barley at the Royal Court Theatre and Six Degrees Of Separation at the Old Vic Theatre. He has even found time to make his mark on television and in film as well, with appearances in Diana alongside Naomi Watts, The Imitation Game alongside Benedict Cumberbatch and Holby City, amongst others.
He is not the only one appearing in the production, however, and audiences can also expect performances from Antonia Kinlay, Ailsa Joy and Jos Slovick. The show is penned by Joshua Harman and directed by Michael Longhurst.
