Ahead of Tom Stoppard's Olivier Award-winning play Leopoldstadt finally getting the green light to resume its run at the Wyndham's Theatre from August 7th, the full cast for the production has now been named. The much-anticipated return of Leopoldstadt will begin from 7th August and run until 30th October. Tickets to the production are currently on sale.
The talented cast will feature four new adult members which will see the role of Jana played by Cara Ballingall, with Arty Froushan starring as Leo, Macy Nyman as Hermine, and Aidan McArdle as Hermann. They will feature alongside original 2020 cast members, including Jenna Augen, Sebastian Armesto, Alexander Newland, Caroline Gruber, Rhys Bailey, Faye Castelow, Aaron Neil, Joe Coen, Mark Edel-Hunt, Clara Francis, Felicity Davidson, Ilan Galkoff, Sam Hoare, Natalie Law, Avye Leventis, Dorothea Myer-Bennett, Jake Neads, Noof Ousellam, Sadie Shimmin, Eleanor Wyld and Griffin Stevens.
The children’s cast is completed by Rocco Brenner, Atticus Collier, Aidan Greenberg, Mae Sarner Henson, Raphael Shbero, Willa Collier, Aidan Herrmann, Lexi Hudaly, Leo Roberts, Ollie Kohn, Max Lester, Audrey Kattan, Mace Phoenix, Osian Salter, Noa Alberts, and Shoshana Shbero.
Leopoldstadt is set in Vienna in the early 20th century Vienna, and is inspired by Tom Stoppard’s own family history focusing on a Jewish family who rediscovers their religious identity. Following a much heralded world premiere in January last year, the show, along with the rest of the productions in the West End was forced to suspend performances on March 14th. Leopoldstadt was the winner of 'Best New Play' at the Olivier Awards in 2020, with Adrian Scarborough (who will not be returning to the production this summer) also winning 'Best Actor in a Supporting Role'.
Leopoldstadt will resume performances at the Wyndham’s Theatre from August 7th and run until October 30th.
