Tom Holland’s West End return sells out in two hours

Hollywood star Tom Holland’s West End return sold out in just two hours as fans scrambled to see him in Romeo & Juliet.

Holland – who has played Spiderman in Marvel movies since 2016 – will play Shakespeare’s Romeo at the Duke Of York Theatre this summer.

Tickets sold out via ATG Tickets in just over two hours as 60,000 fans scrambled to get tickets on general sale for Jamie Lloyd’s production. There was an earlier rush as a pre-sale attracted more than 50,000 eager theatregoers.

Holland’s 12-week run at the Duke of York commences on May 11 and finishes on August 3. The theatre, which is operated by Ambassador Theatre Group, has a capacity of 640.

Holland began his career with a role in Billy Elliot the Musical at the West End’s Victoria Palace Theatre when he was 12 years old in 2008. He ascended to the title role in the show the following year.

Some fans took to social media to share their joy at getting their hands on Romeo & Juliet tickets…

Others were not quite so happy, likening the virtual queues to those experienced for Taylor Swift on-sales…


US stars Sarah Jessica Parker, Matthew Broderick and Woody Harrelson have appeared in West End productions in recent months. Cara Delevingne and Felicity Huffman are set to make their London debuts this year.
