The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby, Parts I & II in Rotating Repertory
"Love, sex and money, poverty and exploitation, hope and despair: Dickens' world is vividly brought to life in David Edgar's adaptation of his 1838 novel." (The Times, London) According to Producing Artistic Director Spiro Veloudos, "this new, shorter adaptation streamlines the narrative, and captures Dickens' genius for combining exuberant characters, theatrical spectacle, and genuine emotion.” A cast of 24 plays over 150 characters in this remarkable two-part play with music, the winner of both the Tony Award for Best Play and The Olivier Award for Play of the Year. We're pulling out all the stops for this incredible once-in-a-lifetime experience that is "teeming with character, atmosphere, and incident, a place where inhumanity rules until, eventually, virtue is triumphant."
