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.”
