The New York Times reported March 1 that Simon Callow's acclaimed one-man show about Charles Dickens, written by London expert and novelist Peter Ackroyd, may land at the Belasco Theatre in April as a late entry in the 2001-02 Broadway season. No official announcement has been made about the show. The Mystery of Charles Dickens recently returned to the Albery Theatre in London, where it enjoyed a run in 2000 after opening at the Comedy. Callow also scored a hit with an earlier one-man show, at the Savoy Theatre, on Oscar Wilde.

Callow is also a director and biographer of note. His bravura style lends itself perfectly to a representation of Charles Dickens, an author who in real life made an art form - and a fortune - out of highly dramatic readings from his novels: his account of the brutal death of Nancy in Oliver regularly led to fainting fits among women in the audience.
