American Buffalo at Wyndham's Theatre
Damian Lewis returns to the West End stage to star in a revival of David Mamet's gripping 1975 play American Buffalo.
Starring alongside Lewis are Golden Globe and Emmy Award winner John Goodman and the Tony nominated actor Tom Sturridge.
Directed by Daniel Evans at Wyndham’s Theatre, American Buffalo is an explosive drama examining the fickle nature of honour among thieves.
As three small-time crooks, Walter "Teach" Cole (Lewis), Don Dubrow (Goodman) and Bobby (Sturridge) plan one big-time heist, a tragedy of errors spins this razor-sharp and darkly funny play into a blistering account of divided loyalties, insatiable greed and a coveted Buffalo nickel
Director: Daniel Evans

English National Ballet: Modern Masters at Sadler's Wells
Relive some of the most dazzling examples of dance from the last century as English National Balletperforms Modern Masters at Sadler’s Wells.
This spectacular dance experience pays tribute to three of the great choreographers of recent times:Jiří Kylián, John Neumeier and William Forsythe. Inspired by – and heavily referencing their unique artistry - this show displays the brilliance of their invention and the pure energy that was driven by the music.
Kylián’s Petite Mort features six men and six women armed with fencing foils who go through their paces to Mozart’s music, with their foils gradually becoming their partners in dance.
Neumeier’s Spring and Fall is a compelling work with two couples and corps de ballet, brilliantly exploiting the tensions to be found in Dvořák’s Serenade for Strings in E Major.
In the Middle, Somewhat Elevated is William Forsythe’s innovative and influential piece that arguably started a whole new form of choreography. It manages to deconstruct the form of classical ballet through its performance on a bare stage, with just nine dancers building slowly to a climax of sheer technical brilliance and physical feats.
