Joshua Jackson to Co-Star with Patrick Stewart in London A Life in the Theatre
By James Inverne
Joshua Jackson, the Canadian heartthrob best known for his role as Pacey in TV’s “Dawson’s Creek,” is set to make his West End stage debut.
Jackson, on the other hand, told the Daily Mail that he has not acted on a stage since he was eight when he played Charlie in an adaptation of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. “Consider me slightly nerve-wrecked,” he told the newspaper, “but that’s part of the fun, isn’t it?”
Lindsay Posner will direct, in what will constitute a follow-up to his equally starry London production of Mamet’s Sexual Perversity in Chicago. That show, which featured Matthew Perry, Minnie Driver, Hank Azaria and Kelly Reilly, drew mixed notices but full houses.
Opening night at the Apollo is set for Feb. 2.
