Pilkington joins Daly in Master Class

First Published 22 December 2011, Last Updated 20 January 2012

Dianne Pilkington will star opposite Tyne Daly in the forthcoming West End transfer of Broadway’s recent hit Master Class.

The pair will be joined by young opera star Naomi O’Connell, Gerard Carey (The Invisible Man, Spamalot), opera singer Garrett Sorenson and Jeremy Cohen, who makes his West End debut reprising his role from the production’s Broadway run.

Terrence McNally’s award-winning play invites the audience to one of Callas’s famous master classes where, late in her career, she dares the next generation to make the same sacrifices and rise to the same heights that made her the most celebrated and the most controversial singer of her time.

Pilkington will play Sophie De Palma. The actress was most recently seen on the London stage in long-runner The 39 Steps but is arguably best known for her three year stint in musical Wicked. Her other stage credits include Chichester Festival Theatre’s She Loves Me and Cats and Beauty And The Beast on tour.

Master Class plays the Vaudeville theatre from 21 January (press night 7 February) until 28 April and is directed by Stephen Wadsworth.

We now sell our famous TKTS Booth discounts online here at Official London Theatre.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

In order for us to serve our audiences the best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 31 May. Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider. Our producers continue to plan for all eventualities dependent on the individual needs of their shows and we will provide further updates on specific shows as and when they become available.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.
