September 10, 2014: ‘Wolf Hall’ and Its Sequel Aiming for Broadway After London Success —NY Times >>
Broadway and London producers are in talks about a New York run of the hit British play “Wolf Hall” and its sequel “Bring Up the Bodies,” based on the historical novels by Hilary Mantel about Henry VIII and his adviser Thomas Cromwell, according to theater executives with knowledge of the discussions.
“Wolf Hall: Parts 1 & 2,” the rebranded two-part theater event that originated at the Royal Shakespeare Company as “Wolf Hall” and “Bring Up the Bodies,” has mapped out its route to Broadway, landing at the Winter Garden Theater in an April opening.
It’s chilling (and thrilling, too — admit it) to listen to these people talk about one another, especially to the all-hearing, frozen-faced spin master at their center. Their conversation gives new resonance to that credo of cattiness, “If you can’t say anything good about someone, come sit next to me.”
As of March 10, 2015, we have a few copies of the RSC Edition of the plays, ISBN 9780007590148, $16.00
