The Oscar winning actor will appear in Neil Koenigsberg’s exciting debut play as an Los Angeles Psychiatrist through an e-appearance at the Jermyn Street Theatre from the 1st to the 25th June.
Neil Koenigsberg’s debut play comes to London after runs in New York and Los Angeles, and is directed by Alan Cohen.
After his wife’s recent passing, retired American businessman Matt Browne takes a week’s respite in his favourite city, London. Checking into a small hotel, his stay unexpectedly turns into a voyage of self-discovery: life, death and the whole damn thing!
Playwright Neil Koenigsberg comments: “I’ve known Jeff Bridges both professionally and personally for many years now and when it was suggested by Michael Brandon and director Alan Cohen that we approach him to do an e-appearance as a crucial character in my play, I thought who better but it was a long shot. Now that it’s happened, I couldn’t be happier. Audiences will get to see Jeff on stage (so to speak) in a funny-sad, rich and endearing performance that enhances all four other actors and the whole production.”
The production stars Michael Brandon (Episodes, Jerry Springer The Opera, Captain America) and Cherie Lunghi (Excalibur, The Manageress, Strictly Come Dancing) with Luke Pitman and Diana Dimitrovici completing the cast.
Meanwhile the production also features set and costume designs by Claire Lyth.
