Mark Rylance has had an extraordinary season on Broadway. His performance in Jerusalem is AMAZING. He is this larger-than-life Falstaffian figure who really dominates the stage. You should not miss Jerusalem, it's that special of a performance!
The New York Times
There's no denying the writing's lyrical power, and Ian Rickson's London production – now mixing a few American actors with the British ones – has a punch-in-the-gut virtuosity
New York Post
Tony and Olivier Award-winning star Mark Rylance (La Bête, Boeing-Boeing) will recreate his wildly acclaimed, multi-award-winning performance as Johnny ‘Rooster’ Byron on Broadway in the Royal Court Theatre production of Jez Butterworth’s universally heralded new play, JERUSALEM. The production, directed by Ian Rickson, will also star Mackenzie Crook (The Seagull, “The Office”) as Ginger and most of the original Royal Court cast, with full casting to be announced at a later date.
JERUSALEM will then transfer once again to the West End, previewing at the Apollo Theatre from 8 October 2011, with press night on 17 October, booking until 14 January 2012.
