Back Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre
Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre confirms their 2022 summer season, the venue’s 90th anniversary. The musical Legally Blonde (13 May – 2 July) is directed by Lucy Moss, co-writer and co-director of Six. Lucy became the youngest woman ever to direct a musical on Broadway when Six opened last month. Previously postponed due to the pandemic, the new musical 101 Dalmatians (12 July – 28 August), directed by Timothy Sheader, will premiere at the outdoor venue in July. Based on the story by Dodie Smith set in Regent’s Park, the musical is written by Douglas Hodge (music and lyrics) and Johnny McKnight (book), from a stage adaptation by Zinnie Harris. In a second commission from the theatre in 2022, Antigone (3 – 24 September) is written by Barber Shop Chronicles writer Inua Ellams, and directed by Max Webster.
