The Second Foray
The production has arrived at Broadway for a very limited run. It previewed at the Belasco Theater on February 8, 2007 and opened on February 22, 2007. It is scheduled to close on July 1, 2007. Written by R.C. Sheriff, and directed by David Grindley, Journey’s End is a story of a group of British soldiers in the trenches in St. Quentin, France during the World War I. Contemplating an impending attack, a young Captain Denis Stanhope, promoted beyond his years, prepares his men for the raid across no-man’s land.
The story is as powerful and timely today with its heroism, humanity and humor, as it was then during the World War I.
The show first performed in 1928, and gave a glimpse of how the officers of a British Army infantry company performed in World War I. The First Foray
This, however, is not the first foray of Journey’s End into Broadway. The play opened in 1928 at Apollo Theatre, West End, London, and ran for over a year. Sir Lawrence Olivier – then an unknown 21 year old actor – was offered the role of Captain Dennis Stanhope in the Apollo Theatre production.
The play’s then unknown director, James Whale, accompanied its transfer to Broadway in 1929 – 78 years ago! The three-act play opened at Henry Miller’s Theater on March 22, 1929, and after 485 performances, closed in May 1930. Back then, Colin Keith-Johnston portrayed the role of Captain Stanhope.
Journey’s End, however, had its first performance in the United States a day earlier on March 21, 1929 at the Great Neck Playhouse in Great Neck, Long Island, New York. The Belasco Theater
The current production at Belasco Theater is R.C. Sheriff’s Journey’s End, and it has Hugh Dancy in the role of Captain Dennis Stanhope.
Belasco Theater was built by architect George Keister, in 1907, to the specifications by David Belasco – the impresario. It was designed with Tiffany lighting, ceiling panels, rich woodwork, and has 18 murals by the renowned artist Everett Shinn. It was fitted with the most advanced tools of the times, such as extensive lighting rigs, a hydraulic system, and a vast wing and fly space. The Belasco Theater features a colonial revival exterior and a neo-Georgian auditorium.
Inspired by the need to have small and intimate venues for entertainment, David Belasco built smaller theaters. Belasco Theater, currently with 1016 seats, opened on October 16, 1907, and remained with David Belasco until his death in 1931. It was then leased to different people, until it was bought by the Shuberts in 1948. Tickets For Journey’s End
