The Mentor is coming to the West End, starring Murray Abraham

The Mentor transfers to London’s Vaudeville Theatre.

Laurence Boswell’s critically acclaimed production of Daniel Kehlmann’s The Mentor is coming to the Vaudeville Theatre from the 24 June to the 2 September 2017.

The production stars Academy Award-winner F. Murray Abraham as Benjamin Rubin, Daniel Weyman as Martin Wegner, Naomi Frederick as Gina Wegner and Jonathan Cullen as Erwin Rudicek.

In a dilapidated art nouveau villa, somewhere in the German countryside, two massive egos are set on a collision course in this perceptive and compelling comedy about art and artists and the legacy of fame.

Abraham won the Academy Award for Best Actor for his role as Salieri in Miloš Forman’s masterpiece Amadeus. He has also starred in Homeland, Mighty Aphrodite, Scarface, Finding Forrester, Star Trek: Insurrection, and many more. His stage credits include It’s Only A Play, Othello, Richard III and Uncle Vanya.

Laurence Boswell is an Olivier Award-winner, having recently worked on the likes of A Midsummer Night’s Dream in the Theatre Royal’s Main House, and Trouble in the Mind, The Mother, Intimate Apparel and The Spanish Golden Age Season in the Ustinov Studio.
