November: London County

November: London County

Just steps away from London's glorious County Hall along the Thames sits the famed National Theatre, which has repeatedly served as the springboard for countless British stage productions that have conquered the world.

Now, that very theatre will host the London incarnation of the Pulitzer Prize, Tony Award-winning American export August: Osage County. Tracy Letts' phenomenal work is set to enjoy an eight-week run at the National's Lyttleton Theatre starting in November with most of its original Broadway cast intact.

Look out, West End Whingers! Violet Weston and her brood are coming your way.

This is Steve On Broadway (SOB).

Only 8 weeks? Too short!

Most shows at the National Theatre play short runs. If they're extended, they usually transfer to a West End theatre.

How long is it?

3 hours and 20 minutes with two intervals.

While it's the fastest 3 hours and 20 minutes you're ever likely to experience in the theatre, I'm hoping that they'll schedule it early enough each evening so that no one will be missing their trains....
