The Gate Theatre production of ‘Krapp’s Last Tape’ tours to the West End with Michael Gambon
OPENING AT THE DUCHESS THEATRE ON 15 SEPTEMBER
FOR A LIMITED SEASON
WITH A PRESS NIGHT ON WEDNESDAY 22 SEPTEMBER
Michael Gambon will return to the West End stage to star in “KRAPP’S LAST TAPE” by Samuel Beckett, which will open at the Duchess Theatre on 15 September for a limited season, finishing on 20 November. There will be a press night on Wednesday 22 September. He will be reprising the critically lauded performance, which he gave for a short season at the Gate Theatre in Dublin in March this year. “KRAPP’S LAST TAPE” will be directed by the Gate Theatre Dublin’s Artistic Director Michael Colgan.
Michael Gambon has recently starred in Harold Pinter’s “No Man’s Land” and Samuel Beckett’s “Eh Joe”, both at the Gate Theatre in Dublin, which both transferred triumphantly to the West End. His other more recent stage work includes “The Caretaker” at the Comedy Theatre, “Endgame” at the Albery Theatre, “A Number” at the Royal Court Theatre and “The Life of Galileo” and “A View From The Bridge”, both at the National Theatre. His television and film work includes “The Singing Detective”, “Mary Reilly”, “Gosford Park”, “Angels in America”, “Cranford” and “The Cook, The Thief, His Wife and Her Lover”. He is universally known for starring as ‘Professor Albus Dumbledore’ in the Harry Potter films. ‘The Great Gambon’, as he is generally known, started his career at the Gate Theatre in Dublin, in exactly the same way as Orson Welles and James Mason.
