Lucien Msamati as Salieri at the National Theatre
Lucien Msamati as Salieri at the National Theatre

As the young struggle to break through I urge you again to get down again from 22 January 2018 to the National Theatre . Lucien Msamati plays the lead as Salieri in Peter Schaffer play “Amadeus”. The last sell out run and cinematic shows were so successful the production is being brought back again.Not content with his recent brilliant performances at the Tricycle Theatre(A Wolf in Snake Skin shoes) and Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom at the National Theatre he is seriously storming the West End.Still you might still catch him on TV in Game of Thrones or the first series of Luther. You can also find him as the Garage owner in the TV production of  the No1 Lady’s Detective Agency. I was hugely honoured to work with him when he cam to Sheffield some years ago as part of Harare’s Over the Edge Theatre Company in a wonderful performance of Twelfth Night. So I am biased.
