‘4000 Miles’ to postpone

As reported before, West End has been closed down due to coronavirus. And as assumed before, it has now been confirmed that ‘4000 Miles’ has been postponed. You can also see an image from rehearsals that had been going on in the gallery.

It is with great sadness that we are temporarily closing The Old Vic in line with the latest government advice on Coronavirus (COVID-19) and postponing our production of Amy Herzog’s 4000 Miles until theatres are able to re-open.

If you have tickets you don’t need to do anything at this point – we will be in touch as soon as we can with more details about the new performance dates.

West End closes doors

Because of the coronavirus outbreak, West End has been shut down until further notice. That means that ‘4000 Miles’ will not proceed on schedule. Read more at Variety.

The U.K.’s leading theaters have closed their doors following government advice issued today for people to avoid public venues.

Theater organizations Society of London Theatre (SOLT) and U.K. Theatre said that their member venues will close tonight to help slow the spread of coronavirus.

Their members include most of the top theaters, from the National Theatre to Shakespeare’s Globe, the London Palladium, the Old Vic and the Royal Opera House.

The theaters will remain closed until further notice and will re-open following government recommendations.

Audience members for a show that has been canceled will be contacted by their ticket providers and are entitled to a refund.

Timothée to make West End debut next spring

The Guardian reports that Timothée is set to appear on London’s West End next spring in Old Vic’s ‘4000 Miles’. You can see the official website here.

The Old Vic is bringing Timothée Chalamet to the London stage next spring in a production of 4,000 Miles, Amy Herzog’s Pulitzer prize-nominated play about family and intergenerational grief.

[…]

Herzog’s work was nominated for a Pulitzer in 2013, and the New York Times said plays that were as “truthful and touching and fine” as 4,000 Miles came along “once or maybe twice a season, if we’re lucky”.

Chalamet’s debut on a London stage will be one of the starriest theatre moments of 2020. The Hollywood star, who first appeared as a child actor in Channel 4’s Homeland, has also been cast as Paul Atreides in a forthcoming remake of Dune, and will appear in the sequel to Call Me By Your Name, which is called Find Me.

4,000 Miles is the story of 21-year-old Leo who goes on a cross-country cycling tour with his best friend. After weeks of no contact he arrives alone at the home of his 91-year-old grandmother, Vera, and the pair begin an unlikely co-existence together in Manhattan.
