Timothée Chalamet makes his UK stage debut opposite Eileen Atkins at the Old Vic in 2020
‘4000 Miles’ was four weeks into its rehearsals when the coronavirus epidemic made continuing impossible. The production has been postponed to a non-specified date. There are no explicit promises on casting (how could there be) but as the Old Vic is saying all previously purchased tickets will be honoured, one might assume Timothée Chalamet will remain with the show, whenever it happens.
Holy heck! It’s only the UK stage debut for that there Timothée Chalamet, horrifyingly gifted young heartthrob young US star of – if you’ve been hiding under a rock or something – ‘Call Me By Your Name’, ‘The King’ et al. He’ll be paired with venerable Brit great Eileen Atkins to star in the Old Vic’s major revival of Amy Herzog’s ‘4000 Miles’, which follows 91-year-old grandmother Vera as she spends a month living with her hippyish grandson Leo in her West Village apartment. Warchus himself will direct.
