I have complied a top ten of the shows that are definitely on my new year radar (or will make good Christmas presents). There is a lot of talent to look out for including the return to the West End of David Tenant and Imelda Stauton. Simon McBurney, fresh from his success in The Encounter directs a new piece at the Royal Court and Daniel Radcliffe makes a return to the stage, treading the boards at the Old Vic.
So in no particular order, here are my ten shows to look out for in 2017. What is going to be on your list?
* Stepping Out – Vaudeville Theatre
* St Joan – The Donmar Warehouse
* Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf – Harold Pinter
* Art – The Old Vic
* Rozencrants and Guildenstern Are Dead – The Old Vic
* Wind in the Willows – The London Palladium
* Road – The Royal Court
* Woyzeck – The Old Vic
* Don Juan in Soho – Wyndham's Theatre
* The Kid Stays in the Picture – The Royal Court
