The Broadway transfer of the Royal Shakespeare Company's Wolf Hall Parts One & Two will offer the opportunity to purchase each part of the theatrical event individually. Patrons will also continue to be able to purchase tickets to both parts of the theatrical event at a discounted rate. Wolf Hall: Parts 1 & 2 will begin previews on March 20 at the Winter Garden Theatre, with an opening set for April 9.

Directed by Jeremy Herrin and adapted for the stage by Mike Poulton, Wolf Hall: Parts 1 & 2 originated at the Royal Shakespeare Company in Stratford-upon-Avon and transferred to the West End's Aldwych Theatre in May 2014. The West End run concluded on September 6.

The two plays are adapted by Mike Poulton from Hilary Mantel's Man Booker Prize-winning novels Wolf Hall and Bring Up the Bodies. Set in the 1500s, the plays tell the story of Thomas Cromwell and his rise to power to become the right-hand man of Henry VIII, as well as Cromwell's interactions with Anne Boleyn.

The production includes a company of more than 20 actors and features scenic and costume design by Christopher Oram, lighting design by Paule Constable (Part 1) and David Plater (Part 2), sound design by Nick Powell, and music by Stephen Warbeck.
