Jerusalem opens at the Apollo Theatre

17th April, 2022

Hear ye, hear ye: Johnny “Rooster” Byron is back in town.

Jez Butterworth’s legendary classic has exploded once again into the West End with its original creative team, led by director Ian Rickson, a decade after its last record-breaking, sell-out run. Mark Rylance revives ‘one of the greatest stage performances ever witnessed’ (Telegraph) as “Rooster” Byron, alongside the “superb” (Time Out) Mackenzie Crook as his loyal sidekick Ginger, in this extraordinary lament for a lost England.

Widely heralded as ‘the 21st Century’s best play,’ (Guardian) and regarded as one of the most influential plays in modern theatre, Jerusalem received critical acclaim during its London runs and Broadway transfer.

Last night’s sold-out performance was met with a standing ovation and rave responses from audience members.

Jerusalem will play for a strictly limited 16 week run at the Apollo Theatre until 7 August 2022.
