Producers of the Broadway transfer of the critically acclaimed Royal Shakespeare Company’s theatrical event Wolf Hall: Parts 1 & 2 are happy to announce that tickets will go on sale to the general public at 10:00 a.m. on October 31, 2014.

Based on the best selling novels by Dame Hilary Mantel (Wolf Hall and Bring Up the Bodies), Wolf Hall: Parts 1 & 2 will invite theatergoers to be part of a unique theatrical experience, similar to the Royal Shakespeare Company’s award winning production of The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby. Both parts of the production can either be seen in one day with a dinner break of approximately two-and-a-half hours, or can be seen on two different days.

For purchases through December 31, 2014, ticket packages for both plays will be available at an exclusive price and those who choose the Saturday or Sunday marathon performances will have the ability to keep their same seats for both plays.

In addition, a limited number of student tickets will be available from the box office for $27 (per part) on the day of the performance.
