The London production of ENRON today enters the last six weeks of its limited run at the Noel Coward Theatre, before its final performance at 7.30pm on 14th August.
Since it opened in the West End in January 2010, ENRON has broken box office and attendance records at the venue. As well as winning several major awards, the production was driven by popular demand to extend its West End run, having already enjoyed sell-out runs at Chichester Festival Theatre and London's Royal Court Theatre. The Broadway production of ENRON was nominated for four Tony Awards.
Inspired by real-life events and using music, dance and video, ENRON explores one of the most infamous scandals in financial history, reviewing the tumultuous 1990s and casting a new light on the financial turmoil in which the world currently finds itself. The cast includes Corey Johnson as Enron's CEO Jeffrey Skilling, with Paul Chahidi, Clive Francis and Sara Stewart.
ENRON won Rupert Goold an Olivier Award, an Evening Standard Award and a Critics Circle Award for Best Director.
The Headlong production, directed by Rupert Goold, will embark on a UK tour later this year, and will also visit several international festivals.
