The award-winning Royal Court Theatre production has been extended for four weeks, and must end on 21 August 2011. Directed by Ian Rickson, and starring Tony and Olivier Award-winning actor Mark Rylance
A comic, contemporary vision of rural life in Englandâ€™s green and pleasant landâ€¦
Jez Butterworthâ€™s award-winning smash hit arrives on Broadway following record-breaking sold-out runs at Londonâ€™s Royal Court Theatre and in the West End.
On the morning of the local county fair, Johnny Byron is a wanted man. Local officials want to serve him an eviction notice, his son wants his full attention, and his motley crew of friends wants his ample supply of booze.
Starring Mark Rylance in the â€œperformance of the decade” (Sunday Times) and the â€œsuperb” (Time Out London) Mackenzie Crook, members of the original London cast are joined by Tony Award-winner and Broadway favorite John Gallagher Jr. in what has been hailed â€œan instant modern classic” (Daily Telegraph).
Jerusalem opened at the Royal Court Theatre in July, 2009 with critics praising playwright Jez Butterworthâ€™s beautiful and comic elegy for a disappearing way of life in rural England and actor Mark Rylance, who was lauded as delivering one of the great stage performances of our time. The production played an extended sold out run at the Royal Court, before moving to the Apollo Theatre in the West End in January, 2010, where it received an unprecedented set of five-star reviews from 12 London newspapers.
â€œA great sprawling brawl of a play. Mark Rylance is astonishing.”
The New York Times
