Going to the theatre in London is a must for any visitor to the city. But the opportunity to see two of Shakespeare’s classic plays at the Old Vic Theatre with such a talented director and cast is a unique chance of a lifetime.
(PRWEB) June 10, 2010
This summer The Old Vic in London is hosting The Bridge Project, featuring a double helping of two fantastic Shakespearean plays: 'As You Like It' and 'The Tempest'.
The Bridge Project was conceived and is directed by Academy Award-winning director of stage and screen, Sam Mendes.
The goal is to produce large-scale, classical theatre for international audiences. The Bridge Project 2010 kicked off in New York in January and visits Asia and Europe before arriving in London at The Old Vic in June.
Book your tickets now for the fantastic new production of 'As You Like It', starring Michelle Beck, Christian Camargo, Ron Cephas Jones, Stephen Dillane and Juliet Rylance. The show runs from 12 June to 21 August with opening night on 23 June.
'The Tempest' features Tony Award-winning actor Stephen Dillane taking on the role of Prospero. He's joined by Christian Camargo, who plays Ariel, and Juliet Rylance as Miranda. Opening night is also on 23 June, with the show running from 18 June to 21 August.
HotelTravel.com Chief Information Officer, Olivier Dombey, said that taking in a live theatre performance in such a historic venue would be an amazing addition to any city break to London.

“Having said that, the opportunity to see two of Shakespeare’s classic plays at the Old Vic Theatre with such a talented director and cast is a unique chance of a lifetime.
“Visitors planning a trip to London this summer really should try and get tickets to both of these outstanding productions,” he added.
