If your New Year’s resolution is to go to the theatre more, then London’s stages are making it pretty easy to keep that promise. The capital is kicking off 2019 with a bevy of tantalising shows that will have your new diary well and truly booked up with theatrical treats. From Hollywood stars treading the boards on this side of the pond, to new toe-tapping musicals, these are the theatre shows you need to see this January.

My Name is Lucy Barton
Four-time Tony and three-time Academy Award nominee Laura Linney will return to the Bridge Theatre for this tale of complex family relationships in New York and beyond. You’ll be able to catch Linney for just three weeks as she takes on the title role in My Name Is Lucy Barton again, a monologue adaptation of a best-selling short novel by Pulitzer Prize winner Elizabeth Strout.
January 23 – February 16, Bridge Theatre, bridgetheatre.co.uk

At first I feared I wouldn’t get along with Lucy Barton. This Lucy Barton, at least, as there is a danger inherent in opening up something small and perfectly formed, in this case Elizabeth Strout’s marvellous 2016 novel which is essentially a monologue, and exposing its intimacies in a big space, namely the almost bare stage of the 900-seat Bridge Theatre. Constant mitigation, however, is provided by that outstanding American actress, three-time Oscar nominee Laura Linney, who gives a compelling 90-minute solo performance full of her trademark nervous smiles.

Elizabeth Strout’s novel works outstandingly on stage, thanks to sole performer Linney’s nuanced command of the narrative. Read More here

Stories have a way of opening up on a stage. Elizabeth Strout’s bestselling novel “My Name Is Lucy Barton” looks, at first glance, like a curious choice for a theatrical adaptation. It’s ruminative, reflective, and all but becalmed: a bedbound writer’s hazy recollections looking back on her life. There’s little action, still less drama, scant theatricality. And yet, in Richard Eyre’s understated staging, exquisitely performed by Laura Linney, its stillness and slowness come to seem like strengths. Lucy Barton’s personal meditation blossoms into something bigger than itself – a portrait of America, perhaps even of history as a whole. Read More here
