In addition to being adapted into a miniseries by BBC 2 — starring none other than Sergeant Nicholas Brody — Hilary Mantel’s award-winning epics Wolf Hall and Bring Up the Bodies, about the court of Henry VII, are now headed to Broadway. According to the New York Times, the Royal Shakespeare Company adaptations of Wolf Hall: Parts 1 & 2, which received rave reviews during their run in the U.K., will begin Broadway previews on March 20, 2015, and open on April 9, 2015. The double bill lasts for over five and a half hours and can be seen separately or together with a dinner break in between.
