The first ever stage adaptation of Dan Brown’s best-selling thriller The Da Vinci Code opens this week.
The production, which is endorsed by Dan Brown, stars former EastEnder Nigel Harman as Robert Langdon - played by Tom Hanks in the 2006 Hollywood blockbuster - and Red Dwarf's Danny John-Jules as Sir Leigh Teabing.
The world premiere of the play opens at the Churchill Theatre, Bromley on Monday, January 10, and runs until Saturday, January 15.
The author said: "I am thrilled that The Da Vinci Code is being adapted for the stage, and excited to see the unique potential of live theatre enhance this story. The team making the production has been faithful to the book, but will also bring something new for the audience, in what is certain to be a gripping, fast-paced stage thriller and a thoroughly entertaining show.”
Directed by Luke Sheppard, who has also directed the hit West End show & Juliet, it also stars Hannah Rose Caton as Sophie Neveu and Joshua Lacy as Silas.
Producer Simon Friend said: “We have a truly stellar cast and creative team bringing The Da Vinci Code to life on stage for the first time, and with Dan Brown’s full endorsement of the show and the talented director Luke Sheppard at the helm, we’re confident that we’ll please devoted fans as well as newcomers to this magnificent story.”
“The epic thriller has been read by millions worldwide, and seen by millions worldwide on the big screen, and we are all looking forward to taking our brand new stage version to audiences all over the UK."
