Nunn to helm ‘Chorus of Disapproval’

Ayckbourn comedy to play at Harold Pinter Theater

LONDON — Trevor Nunn will helm the first London revival of Alan Ayckbourn’s 1984 hit comedy with music “A Chorus of Disapproval” at the West End’s Harold Pinter Theater, opening Sept. 27.

A long-nurtured project from producer Sonia Friedman, the play examines the onstage/backstage affairs of an amateur opera company as they rehearse a production of the English classic “The Beggar’s Opera.” Friedman’s previous Ayckbourn productions include “Absent Friends” and “The Norman Conquests,” which won the Tony for Best Revival.

The revival is designed by Robert Jones and lit by Tim Mitchell. The acting company is led by actor/comic Rob Brydon, Olivier award-winner Nigel Harman (“Shrek — The Musical”) and Ashley Jensen (“Ugly Betty,” “Extras”).

Previews begin from Sept. 17 and more than 100 seats for every performance will be available at £10 ($15.50).
