Goold to co-direct ‘Lion’

New version to launch in London

Broadway and London legit vet Rupert Goold (“Macbeth”) will co-direct a new stage production of “The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe” launching in London this summer.

Show is the latest multimedia production from Threesixty, the company whose 2009 version of “Peter Pan” proved a hit in Blighty and went on to a U.S. tour, which most recently stopped in Boston. Goold, the a.d. of the U.K.’s Headlong Theater and an associate director at the Royal Shakespeare Company, pens the adaptation and co-directs with Michael Fentiman.

Like “Peter Pan,” the new production will be staged in a 1200-seat tent surrounded by a circular screen on which 360-degree CGI images are projected. Live thesps and puppets also will be incorporated into the new version of the C.S. Lewis tale.

Show will begin perfs May 8 in Kensington Gardens, a part of one of the Royal Parks of London.
