Meeting audiences outside the Cort Theatre, some questions regularly recur.

"How much longer will the plays be on Broadway?"

Now we have added extra performances of Waiting for Godot and No Man's Land, we'll be at the Cort Theatre until 30 March - and that's it. I've heard rumours that the Pinter might be revived in London but they are only rumours as for the rest of 2014 I am busy with Bill Condon's film A Slight Trick of the Mind about the 90-year-old Sherlock Holmes and then with the second series of our sitcom Vicious, with Derek Jacobi.

If I were you, I'd get a ticket for either play (preferably both!) on the day of performance - $30 gets you on the very front row.

We are also adding a free extra: talk backs with the cast after Thursday 7pm performances of No Man's Land, when you can ask us anything you want about the play or the season at the Cort Theatre - January 23, monitored by director Sean Mathias: February 6, 13, 20 & 27. This sort of interaction between audience and cast is well-established at the National Theatre and other theatres in London but the first time, I think, to feature on Broadway.
