For the very first time, the Dickens classic GREAT EXPECTATIONS will be staged in London's West End, and audiences around the world will be able to share the historic opening night experience at their local theater.

Although GREAT EXPECTATIONS has been adapted for film on two separate occasions, once by David Lean in 1946 and most recently by Mike Newell, it has never been produced for The West End or Broadway, widely believed to be too difficult to translate to stage. However, this Jo Clifford adaptation has been universally acclaimed as a triumph on its sellout tour of the UK head of its West End debut.

The event will form part of the global celebrations surrounding the 200th Anniversary of the Dickens' birth.

2015 is shaping up to be a triumphal parade of my own childhood.  Unearthing milestones like my junior-high screening of Road Warrior, my family visit as a tiny kid to Disneyland, the comics I stayed up reading with a flashlight under the covers long after lights out, the first movie I ever saw in a theater: Star Wars.
