29/5/13 What’s new in West End

Hi theatre-goers

There’s lots happening in the West End in June 7 July… what with former Harry Potter stars Daniel Radcliffe and Bonnie Wright (Ginny Weasley) both headlining in separate plays.

Wonder if they will get together after their respective shows to swap notes?

Currently in preview, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory officially opens at the London Palladium on 26th June plus on the same date Lenny Henry starts his previews “in one of the great dramas of the 20th century” Fences at the Duchess theatre.

Can you fit them all in?

Have a great Wednesday everyone!
