Mary Stuart, A Voyage Around My Father, Piaf, and Frost/Nixon West End wise and Red, Mary Stuart and Hamlet went to Broadway.
Wasn't Guys and Dolls a Donmar to West End transfer? And then there was the Donmar West End season.
But gosh, how did I forget My Night With Reg? I loved that production!
I guess it's just that the last couple of years at the Donmar have been comparatively underwhelming - they certainly haven't had a must-see sell-out for a while.
Guys and Dolls doesn’t count because it originated at the Piccadilly and it wasn’t strictly a Donmar show, it used the same creative team like Grandage, Oram and Ashford but it was a commercial production backed by ATG, David Ian and a lot of other producers
I know you can't (and shouldn't necessarily) measure success by the number of West End transfers but am I right in saying there have only been two from the Donmar under Josie Rourke - The Weir (Wyndham's) and My Night with Reg (Apollo)?
The female Shakespeare trilogy went to Kings Cross and then Brooklyn. Not everything has to transfer to be a hit.
Dromgoole has already stated he'll be following his Wilde season with a Shaw season. I don't know if he means *immediately* but I think it's safe to say he's committed to being a company leader rather than a building manager for the time being. I wouldn't be so quick to write off Marianne Elliott's company leadership either, one play being a tough sell isn't the same thing as instant failure.
How long has Indhu Rubasingham been at the Tricycle? They're getting ready to reopen as a theatre, aren't they? She might feel like she's ready to move on once she's completed the project, the timeline could work very well for her.
Just had an email from Tricycle saying they are reopening "Spring" and the new season announcement is soon. So doubt she will jump ship at duch a moment. Rachel Kavanagh?
I wouldn't think Robert Icke would be a good choice to run a building and he probably isn't well suited to the politics and schmoozing involved. I'm sure there are a lot of interesting projects on his plate at the moment, so I don't think he needs this.
