“Phoenix” Play to be on London’s West End

Posted on: June 6, 2014

Phoenix Ad with TagWell, it’s finally happening. Andy McQuade, the Artistic Director of London’s Second Skin Theatre, and I just reached agreement with the Phoenix Artist Club for a 3 week run of my Phoenix play in London’s West End, February 10 – 28, 2015. The Phoenix Artist Club is in the same building as the famous Phoenix Theatre, which is where the musical Blood Brothers played the entire 21 years of its West End run.

Andy commissioned me to write Phoenix in 2010, when I was in London for Second Skin Theatre’s production of Shakespeare Inc., and we’ve been working on the play ever since.  It was the beginning of a very productive relationship for both of us.

Phoenix premiered in May, 2014, at the Camino Real Playhouse in San Juan Capistrano, Orange County, California.  It looks as though there will be at least two more productions of the play within the next year as well. Watch this space.
