Product Information

Theatre Royal Haymarket is one of London’s premier West End playhouses. In 2009, it mounted the most successful production ever of Samuel Beckett’s Waiting for Godot. Starring Ian McKellen (The Lord of the Rings trilogy, X-Men) and Patrick Stewart (X-Men, Star Trek: The Next Generation), it ran for 172 sold-out performances. Godot was followed by the first-ever staged adaptation of Truman Capote’s Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Filmed over six months, this documentary series goes behind the scenes of both productions to reveal what makes a West End theatre tick. Meet the stars, the artistic director, the managers, stagehands, carpenters, and even the ushers. Explore the Haymarket, London’s oldest theatre, with 100-year-old seats and plumbing to match. But audiences realize none of this as the lights dim and the magic begins. From the first read-through to the final curtain call, this is theatre as you’ve never seen it before.
