All four plays helmed by a.d. Michael Grandage

The Donmar Warehouse has announced that its yearlong West End season at the 750-seat Wyndham’s Theater played to 98% of capacity.

The season of four plays, all helmed by Donmar a.d. Michael Grandage, climaxed in August with “Hamlet” starring Jude Law. That production went on to play six performances at Elsinore and is now in previews at the Rialto’s Broadhurst Theater.

The season opened with Kenneth Branagh in Chekhov’s “Ivanov,” followed by Derek Jacobi in “Twelfth Night” and then Judi Dench in Yukio Mishima’s “Madame de Sade.” 

Almost 14% of the audience members were first-time bookers, according to Donmar reports, with 42,900 tickets sold at £10 ($16) over the course of the year. Top price throughout the season was $52. Sunday performances played to 97% of capacity across all four plays.
