4000 Miles London Tickets
For family comedy drama, catch 4000 Miles London
4000 Miles in London is an Amy Herzog play set in a Manhattan apartment, where a young man and his 91-year-old grandmother confront their personal griefs together. It's a poignant play, full of pathos, but with a wickedly humorous side to it as well, thanks to the feisty nature of the grandmother's character. It was very well received when it debuted off-Broadway, and went on to earn a finalist spot for the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 2013. This is a wonderfully observed slice of human nature, treated with equal parts emotional gravity and comedic levity, so it's well worth buying or selling 4000 Miles London tickets on StubHub.
A very talented cast for its West End debut
The debut production of 4000 Miles in London took place at the Old Vic right at the turn of the 2020s and marked the first West End appearance for Timothée Chalamet. The young actor first came to attention with his role in the TV series "Homeland", and then went on to earn multiple acting award nominations for his performance in the Oscar-nominated movie, "Beautiful Boy". Playing opposite him in the production was Eileen Atkins, fresh off another major theatre role in The Height of the Storm, which played in the West End and on Broadway in 2019. She's one of the grand old dames of British theatre, having made her West End debut way back in 1961, the start of a career that has included three Olivier Awards. She's an incredibly accomplished actress with renowned stage stamina, who will always be remembered for her triple-bill performance in "Cymbeline", "Mountain Language" and "The Winter's Tale". She's also performed in plenty of other Shakespearian productions, including "Twelfth Night", "The Tempest" and "Richard III". These are two substantial roles that require intensely talented actors – an enticing prospect when you have 4000 Miles London tickets.
A character based on Herzog's own grandmother
At the helm of the same 4000 Miles in London production was director Matthew Warchus, another accomplished member of the production team who has directed a lot of musical theatre as well as the more introspective type of plays – a combination that made him the perfect choice for this play. He's directed both Matilda The Musical and "Ghost The Musical", and has also turned his hand to works like David Mamet's Speed-the-Plow. Playwright Amy Herzog based the grandmother's character in large parts on her own grandmother, Leepee, the second time she has done so: a previous play, "After the Revolution", had featured a prototype of this character too.
