Actress Isis Hainsworth to Lead Hot London Production of Romeo and Juliet

Toheb Jimoh, who plays AFC Richmond’s goal-scoring Sam Obisanya on Ted Lasso. When he and Red Rose actress Isis Hainsworth play William Shakespeare’s star-crossed lovers in what is expected to be the sizzler of a Romeo and Juliet production in London. So let’s deal with rhyming couplets. Heat.

Acclaimed Revival of Ebb’s Cabaret

Scorching Heat comes from its director Rebecca Freaknoll, associate director of North London’s Alameda Theatre. He lights up the West End with an acclaimed revival of Kander and Ebb’s Cabaret in 2021 at the Playhouse Theatre, now converted to the Kit Kat Club. Those parts are now being played by John McCrea (Cruella) and Amy Lou Wood (Living, Sex Education).

It doesn’t end there

Freaknoll also staged an extraordinary reimagining of Tennessee Williams’ classic play A Streetcar Named Desire, starring Best Actor Oscar nominee Paul Meskal (Afterson), who was terrific as Stanley Kowalski.

It played a sold-out run at the Alameda and has now transferred to the Phoenix Theatre. Where the preview starts on Monday. It also stars Blanche Dubois as Stella and an incandescent Patty Ferran (Life After Life) as Anjana Vasan (We Are Lady Parts).

Saw Jimoh in Los Angeles

Romeo and Juliet will also play in the Alameda. Performances there run from 6 June to 29 July. When I saw Jimoh last week in Los Angeles. So at the AppleTV+ ace party held to celebrate Season 3 of Ted Lasso, he expressed his excitement about his next gig. However, he was forbidden from telling me what he was doing. Although I had a feeling about it.

So I heard Freaknol cast Jimoh a few months ago. The next task was to find an actress to play Juliet. Hainsworth was officially signed on Wednesday night. Scottish-born Hainsworth stars in the chilling BBC Three horror drama Red Rose. Which is now streaming on BBC iPlayer and Netflix. He also starred in the Netflix film Metal Lords.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream at the Bridge Theater in London

Her theater work includes Our Lady of Perpetual Success in the West End, and she played Hermia in a vibrant, immersive interpretation of A Midsummer Night’s Dream at the Bridge Theater in London. Breaking Baz has Almeida confirmed to both stars, and I’ve seen Almeida’s tagline for the drama.

“Verona is a powderkeg of blood-lustful rage, with the streets proudly treating death. As two families wage war, will a young couple become the next victim of this brutal feud?” The two warring families of Verona are Romeo’s kin, the House of Montague, and Juliet’s family, the House of Capulet.

i played stroppy Tybalt

But you knew that, didn’t you? Not sure how much Shakespeare is taught in regular schools these days. But Romeo and Juliet were the first Shakespeare I wrote an essay on. I played the strappy Tybalt. Not my finest moment on the boards.
