Jeff Bridges will appear in a new London stage production, via video.
The Oscar-winning actor will be making an “e-appearance” in new production Off The King’s Road at the Jermyn Street Theatre.
Bridges will play a Los Angles psychiatrist alongside the rest of the cast which also includes Michael Brandon, Cherie Lunghi, Luke Pitman and Diana Dimitrovici.
Directed by Alan Cohen, Neil Koenigsberg’s debut play comes to London after runs in New York and Los Angeles. “I’ve known Jeff Bridges both professionally and personally for many years now,” said Koenigsberg.
“When it was suggested by Michael Brandon and Alan Cohen that we approach him to do an e-appearance as a crucial character in my play, I thought who better but it was a long shot. Now that it’s happened, I couldn’t be happier. Audiences will get to see Jeff on stage (so to speak) in a funny-sad, rich and endearing performance that enhances all four other actors and the whole production.”
The story follows American Matt Browne as he takes a week’s respite in a small hotel, off the King’s Road in London after his wife’s death.
Off The King’s Road runs at the Jermyn Street Theatre from 3 to 25 June.
