Ambassador Theatre Group Productions today announce that the Emmy and Tony Award-winning, and 2024 Golden Globe nominee, Billy Crudup (The Morning Show) is reprising his role to make his West End debut in the UK premiere of David Cale’s critically acclaimed one man play Harry Clarke, which transfers to the West End following two hit runs in the US. The production, directed by Tony Award nominee Leigh Silverman, opens at the Ambassadors Theatre on Wednesday 13 March, with previews from Saturday 9 March, and runs until Saturday 11 May 2024.
Billy Crudup said today, “I love London and I have loved seeing theater in London for decades. West End theater-goers are some of the most discerning, intelligent and hungry audiences in the world. I’m grateful to be given the opportunity to share the work Leigh, David, myself and all our producers have created on the London stage.”
“Billy Crudup… appears to be having the time of his life in a sly role terrifically suited to his gifts.”

Tony and Emmy Award-winning actor Billy Crudup (The Morning Show, Coast of Utopia, No Man’s Land, Almost Famous) delivers an acting “masterclass” (New York Theatre Guide) in David Cale’s wickedly funny thriller HARRY CLARKE, transferring to London’s West End from March direct from sell-out runs in New York and Los Angeles.
Harry Clarke has a secret. Well, Philip Brugglestein has a secret – but people only have eyes for seductive Londoner Harry…
Conjuring comparisons to The Talented Mr. Ripley and Saltburn with a touch of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, HARRY CLARKE keeps audiences guessing – charting the exploits of an awkward Midwestern man who moves to New York City to charm his way into a wealthy family.
Reprising his acclaimed performance for nine weeks only, Crudup has “the time of his life in a sly role terrifically suited to his gifts” (New York Times). Directed by Leigh Silverman (Suffs, Violet, Soft Power, In the Wake), do not miss this intoxicating performance about one man’s thrilling double life. Book tickets now.
