Apollo Theatre To Reopen With West End transfer Of Let The Right One In
| By London Theatre Direct
It has been confirmed that John Tiffany’s acclaimed production of Let The Right One In will transfer to the West End's Apollo Theatre next month. Fresh from a sell-out run at the Royal Court, Let The Right One In will begin previews at the Apollo Theatre on Wednesday 26th March ahead of an official opening night on Monday 7th April 2014.
Let The Right One In is the first production to run at the newly refurbished Apollo Theatre following last year's ceiling collapse. The auditorium will feature a stunning new cyclorama designed by the show’s award-winning designer Christine Jones.
Based on the Swedish novel and cult-hit film by John Ajvide Lindqvist, Let The Right One In marks the National Theatre of Scotland’s West End debut. It is described as a 'chilling tale of loneliness, love and legend'.
Rebecca Benson and Martin Quinn will reprise their roles as Eli and Oskar. Other cast members include Graeme Dalling, Angus Miller, Cristian Ortega and Susan Vidler.
Oskar is a lonely boy from a broken home. He’s bullied at school and is longing for friendship. Eli is a troubled girl who’s just moved in next door. She never goes to school and is compelled to fill an eternal emptiness. When a series of brutal killings plagues the neighbourhood, these two young misfits make a deep connection, sensing in each other a kindred spirit. But the shocking truth about Eli tests Oskar’s loyalty - and love - beyond all imaginable limits, in this chilling tale of loneliness, love and legend.
