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 opened on Broadway on 21 April 2011 at the Music Box Theatre (239 West 45th Street). Previews began on 2 April 2011. The production will play a limited 20-week engagement until 21 August 2011.
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.
