Update for Jez Butterworth's Jerusalem at the Apollo Theatre
Sonia Friedman Productions and the Royal Court Theatre are excited to reveal the long-awaited return of Ian Rickson's production of Jez Butterworth's Jerusalem. It's in town, in London's West End, for a strictly limited 16 week run from 16th April 2022. The full cast will be announced at a later date. Like the producers, we're delighted to be able to confirm that this brilliant piece of theatrical drama is back on stage.

About the Apollo Theatre
The Apollo Theatre is one of several on Shaftesbury Avenue in the City of Westminster. The venue was specially designed to host musical theatre, aptly named after the Greek god of the arts and the leader of the muses. And the third tier balcony is probably London's steepest, adding to the drama of the experience. Past shows at the Apollo Theatre include Peter Pan Goes Wrong, Travesties, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof and Everybody’s Talking About Jamie.
