Start the Week | Nicholas Hytner

Based on The History Boys by Alan Bennett

Hytner made his name and fortune in the 1990s with the musical Miss Saigon. Further successes came with theatre and film productions of The Madness of King George and The History Boys, and the sell-out One Man, Two Guvnors. During the year of the pandemic Hytner has sought to keep the theatre afloat with performances of Alan Bennett's Talking Heads.
