An all-star cast of British talent star in the revival of Jez Butterworth’s Mojo which opened at the Harold Pinter theatre on 13th November 2013 and now runs through to 8th of February 2014.
Men of the moment Ben Whishaw, Rupert Grint, Daniel Mays, Colin Morgan, Tom Rhys Harries and Brendan Coyle bring to life the London underworld in this savagely funny play.
Located in Soho’s sleazy Atlantic Club, in 1958, would-be rock ‘n’ roll star Silver Johnny (Harries) is heading fame-ward, and his manager Ezra, who also owns the Atlantic Club, is protecting his protégé from creepy local gangster/ entrepreneur Sam Ross.
Unfortunately for Ezra and Silver Johnny things don’t end well for them and its up to Ezra’s ‘associates’ to sort out the mess left behind with just an ancient cutlass and an old Derringer for protection against the impending attack from Ross’ henchmen.
Mojo and Hotel Accommodation
The Harold Pinter theatre is on Panton Street which runs between Leicester Square and The Haymarket. Nearby hotels include the 5 star Le Meridien, the 4 star Radisson Edwardian Leicester Square and the 3 star Thistle Piccadilly Hotel.
Either Leicester Square on the Northern & Piccadilly Lines or Piccadilly Circus are the nearest tubes line so any hotels in Kings Cross, Bloomsbury, Mayfair, Kensington and Knightsbridge are within easy reach. The Piccadilly Line goes all the way out to Hearthrow so it could be a great theatre break for a stop-over!
