Ask David Tennant A Question For Delfont Mackintosh Theatre Programmes



What would you ask David Tennant?

Theatre group Delfont Mackintosh are after YOUR questions for David ahead of his return to the West End stage next spring. Either tweet your question via @DMTWestEnd using the hashtag #DTQuestion or comment on their Facebook page and if selected your question could appear, with your name, in Delfont Mackintosh's theatre programmes in February 2017.

David Tennant will be starring, from 17th March 2017, in the West End premiere of Don Juan In Soho, the savagely funny and filthy play written and directed by Patrick Marber. Marking ten years since its acclaimed run at the Donmar Warehouse, David leads an electrifying cast, including Adrian Scarborough and Gawn Grainger, at Wyndham's Theatre for a strictly limited season.

Don Juan In Soho
'Please don't be charmed, he's not a lovable rogue...'
Loosely based on Molière's tragicomedy 'Don Juan', this modern update transports the action to contemporary London and follows the final adventures of its debauched protagonist – a cruel seducer who lives only for pleasure.

PHOTOS: David Tennant Attends The Tempest Press Night


David Tennant was amongst guests at the press night for the latest Royal Shakespeare Company spectacular, The Tempest, in Stratford-upon-Avon on Thursday evening. He was joined by Alexandra Gilbreath, who played Juliet to his Romeo back in 2000.



Simon Russell Beale returns to the RSC after 20 years to play Prospero in the groundbreaking production directed by Gregory Doran.
The Tempest plays at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre until 21st January 2017. It will transfer to The Barbican in London from 30th June 2017.

About The Play:
On a distant island a man waits.

Robbed of his position, power and wealth, his enemies have left him in isolation. But this is no ordinary man, and this no ordinary island. Prospero is a magician, able to control the very elements and bend nature to his will. When a sail appears on the horizon, he reaches out across the ocean to the ship that carries the men who wronged him. Creating a vast magical storm he wrecks the ship and washes his enemies up on the shore. When they wake they find themselves lost on a fantastical island where nothing is as it seems.

In a unique partnership with Intel, we will be using today’s most advanced technology in a bold reimagining of Shakespeare’s magical play, creating an unforgettable theatrical experience.

CAST UPDATE: More Names Join David Tennant In Don Juan In Soho



More of the cast has been revealed for the upcoming West End revival of Don Juan In Soho in which David Tennant plays the lead role. Joining him in Patrick Marber's riotous re-imagining of Molière's classic will be Adrian Scarborough and Gawn Grainger.

Adrian Scarborough is well known to TV viewers through his regular appearances on Miranda and Gavin And Stacy, and was most recently on stage as the Fool in Sam Mendes' production of King Lear at the National Theatre. He will be taking on the role of DJ's best friend Stan.

Gawn Grainger has appeared on TV in Holby City and Foyle's War, and on stage in Kenneth Branagh's The Entertainer. He will be playing DJ's father Louis.

Patrick Marber's version of the Don Juan story relocates the action from the 17th Century to the seedy clubs and hotels of London's Soho. Marber himself directs as David Tennant plays the legendary hedonist who descends into a hell of his own making. Don Juan In Soho opens for previews at Wyndham's Theatre in London's West End on Friday 17th March and runs to Saturday 10th June. Tickets are available now via this link

More cast announcements will be made shortly - check our Twitter feed at @davidtennantcom and our Facebook page for updates.

PHOTOS: David Tennant Visits The Royal Shakespeare Company's The Play's The Thing Exhibition



Last week David Tennant visited the Royal Shakespeare Company's latest exhibition The Play's The Thing in Stratford-upon-Avon and was reunited with his own iconic costume from the 2008 run of Hamlet. David also had a go at trying on the costume with the help of one of the exhibition's many interactive features and checked out a collection of skulls from various versions of Hamlet.



The major new family attraction is located in the Swan Wing of the RSC's theatres, marking the culmination of the restoration of the oldest part of the building, which dates from 1879. The Play's The Thing will be the RSC's first ever permanent exhibition devoted to the staging of Shakespeare’s plays.



Many famous faces have performed at the RSC and besides David the exhibition includes costumes worn by Dame Judi Dench, Sir Ian McKellen, Dame Helen Mirren, Sir Laurence Olivier, Paul Robeson and Vivien Leigh. The immersive exhibition also highlights some of the RSC’s most iconic theatre productions with treasures from the archive, including rarely-seen props, exquisite costumes and original set designs. There are plenty of opportunities to get involved too, with a magic costume mirror for visitors to try on virtual costumes, the Quick Change Challenge, changing a costume against the clock with Velcro, buttons and magnets, or the chance to stand on the RSC stage through state of the art technology.  Visitors will also be able to explore how set design, lighting, sound, special effects and music all help to create the world on stage.

Also on display will be the Chandos portrait of Shakespeare, on loan for a limited time from the National Portrait Gallery, and a rare first folio of Shakespeare’s plays dating from 1623.

The Play’s The Thing is open daily from 10am at The Swan Theatre, Stratford-upon-Avon.

Tickets cost £8.50. Children aged 5-17 are half price when purchased with a full priced adult admission and under 5s go free. For groups and schools admissions, please contact the RSC Box Office.

David Tennant To Return To West End for Don Juan In Soho Next Spring



David Tennant is to return to the West End next spring.  David will star in a new production of Patrick Marber's Don Juan In Soho at Wyndham’s theatre in London, directed by Marber himself.
Marber’s contemporary take on the classic Molière comedy Dom Juan, premiered at the Donmar Warehouse in December 2006, directed by Michael Grandage.

About Don Juan In Soho:
The infamous, amoral hedonist in a society entranced by sensation. Moliere's farcical, tragic, anarchic Don Juan (1665) is the inspiration for Patrick Marber's play in which the action of the original is relocated to present day Soho, London.
Whereas Moliere condemned his anti-hero to a literal Hell, Marber condemns him to a hell of his own making.
