2019 has got off to a tremendous start – with standing ovations all round – we’re looking forward to even more wonderful theatre in Manchester and the North.
There are some belting shows opening over the next few days in Greater Manchester, we recommend checking out the Mother Courage and her Children at the Royal Exchange and A Skull in Connemara, a macabre mystery written by BAFTA and Academy Award-winning Martin McDonagh, at Oldham Coliseum.
Arthur Miller’s The Last Yankee, directed by David Thacker, at Bolton Library Theatre, is a hot ticket and really shouldn’t go under your radar. We’ve got high hopes for this Miller revival.
Happening this March – we highly recommend booking in for the eagerly awaited Barber Shop Chronicles presented by Contact as part of their exhilarating In The City Part Three Season. And looking further ahead – don’t miss bagging your tickets for Abigail’s Party at Manchester Opera House and Jerry Springer – The Opera at Hope Mill Theatre.
