The Crucible Back Onstage Tonight!

After an unexpected cancellation of last night’s performance of The Crucible starring Richard Armitage at The Old Vic Theatre in London, due to an unforeseen electrical issue…we are happy to report the cast is back on tonight!

The theatre apologised profusely for this unfortunate event and even Armitage…whose soul-shattering performance as John Proctor is what has been luring fans to the theatre on a nightly basis…took it upon himself to meet disappointed audience members and personally apologise to them in person. What a class act! I don’t know about you…but that must have been worth the price of admission alone!

The theatre has promised to issue refunds to all affected ticket holders. Hopefully those theatre-goers can try their luck at the ‘returns’ line as the show is pretty much sold out through the end of its run on September 13th.

In the meantime here’s little something that is sure to put a smile on your faces.  It’s my favorite picture from The Crucible showing Armitage as Proctor in one of the most powerful moment’s I’ve ever witnessed on stage. If this performance doesn’t win an Olivier…I’m handing in my Equity card!


Richard Armitage…a tour de force in The Crucible.

And, for the two of you that haven’t yet heard….Richard Armitage has joined TwitterLand! You can follow him at @RCArmitage. Pop him a Tweet and help him unwind after four hours of soul-wrenching emoting!

For more information on how to return your tickets for a refund, contact the Theatre Box Office at: 0844 871 7628

Lady Anglophile…standing in the returns line, as we speak….

    Yes, Richard keeps proving over and over what a gentleman he is. No one would have blamed him for not coming out when the play was cancelled but that just wouldn’t have been Richard’s style. Fans support him and therefore he supports and respects them as well so he had to come out and talk with them even in the rain. One of many reasons we love him.

  5. Stunning portraits of Richard Armitage as John Proctor in The Crucible! They took my breath away–I literally forgot to breathe. So glad my rescue inhaler was nearby. Sighhh! And kudos to Jay Brooks, the photographer!

    Hi Marlise! Great Job.. Thank you for posting Richard Armitage!! One hot dude!! I have one question.. when I click the “like” button, it wants me to log into WordPress. I know I have an acct. there, but it won’t accept my info. I tried to reset my password, but it still won’t let me do that either. What do I do?

      Ditto here, Katherine – living down here in Adelaide, South Australia, we miss out on all the fun stuff. Still, it’s nice that Marlise and Ali of RichardArmitageNet work hard to keep us updated on everything we’re missing out on. 😉
