CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 but restrictions were lifted on 19th July 2021 with venues free to run shows to full capacity audiences after that though there are still issues with company members being forced to self-isolate on being 'pinged'. In September it is possible that a COVID vaccination certificate (or exemption) may be mandated for entry. Please note that iUKTDb archive listings between March 2020 and July 2021 may not be accurate as we did not receive details of all rescheduled and cancelled shows.
Based on the 1927 Fritz Lang silent film, METROPOLIS opened at the Piccadilly Theatre in 1989 with a cast that included Brian Blessed, Judy Kuhn and Graham Bickely. Set in 2026 METROPOLIS is the last city in the world where all natural resources have been extinguished. The city relies on slave workers labour to keep running. The workers are locked up in an Underground city where they are forced to work at machines and not even allowed to see the sun whilst the wealthy industrialists reign in high rise buildings above. City ruler John Freeman is unsatisfied with his workers lack of effectiveness and plans to replace them with robots. His plans prove to be difficult to accomplish due to the efforts of his son, Steven, who does everything he can to improve the workers conditions and Maria, the teacher of the workers children who Steven has fallen in love with.Performers Rob Heron (Steven), Miiya Alexandra (Maria/Futura), Gareth James (Freeman), Kitty Whitelaw (Warner), Michael Levi (George), Alex Ely (Jeremiah), Mare Mackinnon (Groat), Annabel Edwards (Ensemble), Kieran Wynne (Ensemble), Tami Stone (Ensemble), Michael Larcombe (Ensemble), Laura Hyde (Ensemble), Mikey Wooster (Ensemble), Tom Blackmore (Ensemble), Freya Tilly (Ensemble), Shannon Kavanagh (Ensemble).
