Odds & Ends: Romola Garai Tapped for Young Vic & More

first_imgHere’s a quick roundup of stories you may have missed today. Romola Garai & Simon Stephens Tapped for Young Vic London’s buzzy Young Vic theatre has announced its new season. The lineup includes Shakespeare’s Measure For Measure this fall, headlined by recent off-Broadway alum and screen star Romola Garai, and the U.K. premiere of Song From Far Away. The latter is a new play by Simon Stephens, who is currently represented on Broadway by the acclaimed Curious Incident and will be directed by Ivo van Hove. Since the venue’s most recent hits have included A View from the Bridge and Streetcar, we’re definitely hoping to cross the pond to catch these new productions. Larry Kramer & Gay Men’s Health Crisis Make Peace The real-life rift featured in the Tony-winning The Normal Heart (and recent HBO screen adaptation starring Mark Ruffalo and Julia Roberts) is healing. According to The New York Times, playwright Larry Kramer will be honored by Gay Men’s Health Crisis at its annual spring gala on March 23 by establishing a lifetime achievement award in his name. Kramer was instrumental in founding the volunteer AIDS organization in 1981, but he was later ejected for his methods of highlighting the epidemic.
