Summer listings for Lowry Theatre

It's celebrating its tenth birthday this year with a big party in June and big name shows throughout the summer

Published on May 5th 2010.


Summer listings for Lowry Theatre

As of 28 April, the Lowry was ten years-old. It celebrated the big day by getting its kit off and wandering around naked in public (read more here) but the jollities don't end there.

There's a Big Family Tenth Birthday Party coming up in early June which features ticketed and free events aimed at a multi-generational crowd (no nudity here, thank you). Highlights include The Little Mermaid by Teatro Kismet, one of Italy’s leading theatre companies, plus a circus, theatre and film crossover performance from LaLaLuna, and Suzie Templeton’s animation of Peter and the Wolf with a live accompaniment from the Manchester Camerata.

Notable events of the coming months include a talk by US writer and thought-leader Malcolm Gladwell, author of bestsellers The Tipping Point and Blink. He'll be appearing at the Lowry on 11 May to mark the publication of his new book, What the Dog Saw which brings together some of his best essays from the New Yorker.

There are loads of big name comedians coming up, including catty character-assassin Katy Brand (16 May) and master of the absurd improvisation Paul Merton (31 May). Music comes from influential acts including Suzanne Vega (14 June), Rickie Lee Jones (8 July) and Mercury-nominated The Unthanks (28 May).

Other highlights include Kolectiv Theatre UK's rethinking of of Chekhov's The Cherry Orchard (5-8 May), the Birmingham Royal Ballet's Romeo and Juliet (30 June-3 July) and the return of sparkly-eyed mentalist Derren Brown (9-12 June) with his show Enigma.
