Dan Brown’s The Da Vinci Code is to become a stage play, making its world premiere with a UK tour in 2021.
It will open at the Churchill Theatre, Bromley on April 3, 2021, and tour throughout the year.
The Da Vinci Code is adapted for the stage by Rachel Wagstaff and Duncan Abel, and will be directed by Luke Sheppard, who helmed the West End musical & Juliet.
Sheppard said: “Cracking The Da Vinci Code open for the stage reveals an epic thriller steeped in theatrical potential, rich in suspense and surprising at every turn. Rachel Wagstaff and Duncan Abel’s brilliant adaptation leaps off the page and demands us to push the limits of our imagination, creating a production that champions dynamic theatrical storytelling and places the audience up close in the heat of this gripping mystery.”
Brown said he was “excited to see the unique potential of live theatre enhance this story”.
The Da Vinci Code is produced by Simon Friend, who produced The Girl On The Train on stage.
