News   Simon Russell Beale Opens in Mr Foote's Other Leg Tonight
 
Simon Russell Beale istars Georgian celebrity Samuel Foote in Ian Kelly's Mr Foote's Other Leg, opening Sept. 21 (following previews that began Sept. 14), for a run through Oct. 17.

The play, which is directed by former National Theatre artistic director Richard Eyre, is based on Kelly's own award-winning biography of Samuel Foote, who was one of the great lost figures of Georgian London: a satirist, impressionist and dangerous comedian who had the ear of the King. In an age obsessed with fame, his colleagues from the worlds of science and the stage – from Benjamin Franklin to David Garrick – begin to wonder: does fame make you mad?

Also in the cast are Micah Balfour, Sophie Bleasdale, Joshua Elliott, Jenny Galloway, Ian Kelly, Dervla Kirwan, Forbes Masson, Joseph Millson  and Colin Stinton.
