Upcoming shows at the Apollo Theatre:
Brodsky / Baryshnikov is a one-man show based on the poems of Nobel laureate Joseph Brodsky, performed by Mikhail Baryshnikov. Conceived and directed by Alvis Hermanis, noted Latvian director of The New Riga Theatre, Brodsky / Baryshnikov is an emotional journey deep into the poet's visceral and complex compositions. Performed in Russian, Brodsky's mother tongue, Baryshnikov recites a selection of his long-time friend’s poignant and eloquent works. His subtle physicality transports the audience into Hermanis' reverent imagining of Brodsky's interior world.
Performed in Russian with English surtitles.
English translation by Jamey Gambrell.

The Grade 2 listed splendour of the Apollo theatre is hard to beat, a popular venue since it first opened its doors in 1901 on London’s splendid Shaftesbury Avenue. The Apollo has a stellar reputation for inspirational theatreland entertainment, in line with its namesake the Greek God of the Arts, Apollo. This is a relatively intimate venue with 755 seats split across four levels. There’s a smart, cosy Stalls bar across two levels and a smaller Upper Circle bar too. Owned by Nimax theatres since 2005, it has hosted smash hit shows like Summer and Smoke and The Glass Menagerie as well as the extremely popular Rain Man and Three Days of Rain. Recently showcasing the wonderful actor David Suchet in Long Day’s Journey into Night, it’s a great place to experience the finest Shakespeare plays with a portfolio that includes Twelfth Night and Richard III. You’ll find an excellent selection of Apollo theatre tickets here on site, to suit every pocket.
