Your Sunday morning best of Londonist weekly round-up, this week sponsored by the Royal Court Theatre.
Lights, camera, action for Hollywood play at Royal Court Theatre
Head to the Royal Court Theatre to see The Kid Stays in the Picture — a brand new play based on the true story of legendary film producer Robert Evans.
Don't know who Robert Evans was? Actually, you probably do — this is the guy who produced blockbusters like The Godfather, and even saved Paramount Pictures from collapse in the 60s. Directed by Simon McBurney, this play chronicles the life of one of the most powerful figures in Hollywood's history, in the midst of a changing America.
Check out this performance for a life you couldn't make up. The Kid Stays in the Picture runs at the Royal Court Theatre until 8 April. There is very limited availability, but £12 day seats will be released at 9am online every Monday of the run. Book your tickets here.
