Stars Arrive for the Broadway Premiere of Wolf Hall: Parts 1 and 2

The two dramas are adapted from the novels by Dame Hilary Mantel.

The Royal Shakespeare Company’s acclaimed production of Wolf Hall: Parts 1 & 2 is celebrating its opening day at Broadway's Winter Garden Theatre today, April 9, after beginning previews March 20.

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. The two plays are inspired by 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 features a company of more than 20 actors, headed by Ben Miles as Thomas Cromwell, Lydia Leonard as Anne Boleyn, and Nathaniel Parker as King Henry VIII — all of whom appeared in the West End company.
