Peter and Alice - Noel Coward Theatre

The third of five productions in the Michel Grandage season, and the only new one, John Logan’s drama stars Judi Dench and Bond alumni Ben Whishaw as the title characters, the inspiration for JM Barrie’s eternal boy Peter Pan and Lewis Carroll’s Alice (of Wonderland fame).

This could also, due to the star-wattage of the two leads, be one of the season’s best.

£10+, until Jun 1, 7.30pm;
Sat, 2.30pm WC2N 4AU  
Tube | Leicester Square

The Book of Mormon - Prince of Wales Theatre

Matt Stone and Trey Parker’s offensively hilarious musical satire stunned critics and audiences in New York and finally hits these shores. Best show of the year? You’d be a fool to bet against it.

£37.50+, Until Aug 24, 7.30pm
(Weds & Sat, also at 2.30pm) W1D 6AS

US actor Robert Sean Leonard (Dead Poet’s Society; House) plays Atticus Finch in this Open Air Theatre production kicking off the summer season including  Pride And Prejudice, The Winter’s Tale and The Sound Of Music.

Barking in Essex - Wyndham’s Theatre

Essex-based funnyman Lee Evans stars in this comedy from late screenwriter- turned-playwright Clive Exton.

Evans is Algie Parker, an Essex hardman out after seven years inside who’s post-jail life isn’t as rosy as the £3m-plus he’s stashed should make it.

A top British comedy with a top British cast to boot.

£22.50, Sep 6-Jan 4, 2014. Times
TBC WC2H 0DA  
Tube | Leicester Square

After The Rainfall - Arts Depot

This time-straddling, multimedia production flits between years, locations and media forms in its dissection of humankind. Challenging, Ed Fringe-winning work.

£14, Jun 14 & 15, 7.30pm N12 0GA  
Tube | West Finchley

Henry V - Noel Coward Theatre

The fifth and final production in the Grandage season sees London-lad-turned-Hollywood-mega-star Jude Law getting down to some stage thesping as he takes on the central role in this Bard adaptation.

A big celeb up close and intimate in this powerhouse production.

£10, Nov 3-Feb 15, 7.30pm; 
Wed/Sat, 2.30pm  WC2N 4AU

Sweet Bird of Youth - The Old Vic

The West End has always welcomed stars from Hollywood – Christian Slater took on One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest; Gwyneth Paltrow appeared in Proof; David Schwimmer starred in Neil LaBute’s Four Girls; Danny DeVito tickled plenty of ribs in last year’s The Sunshine Boys.

Sex And The City star Kim Cattrall becomes the latest US star to tread the UK boards when she stars as a fading Hollywood legend in this production of Tennessee Williams’ powerful drama about fading hope and the reality of failure. Bummer.

£29+, Jun 1-Aug 31,
times vary SE1 8NB  
Tube | Waterloo
