Chicago’s Royal George Theatre will present The Woman in Black this fall, according to the Chicago Tribune.
The Susan Hill drama, adapted by Stephen Mallatratt, will open November 18 at the venue, which has faced a period of inactivity until now. Bradley Armacost and Adam Wesley Brown will star.
The Victorian ghost story, which has played the West End for over three decades, was also adapted into a 2012 film starring Daniel Radcliffe. The commercial, open-ended Chicago staging will feature the work of London director Robert Herford.
The Woman in Black will be produced by PW Productions and Pemberly Productions; the latter will also produce Michael Morpurgo’s Private Peaceful in collaboration with Verdant Productions.
Peaceful, from the creator of War Horse, will play a limited engagement at the Greenhouse Theater Center beginning October 17.
