Theatre Royal Haymarket

Happy Retirement Brian!

Tuesday, April 3rd, 2018

After 33 years, our wonderful, reliable Stage Door Keeper Brian Russell is returning the keys to the theatre to enjoy a well-deserved retirement.

At a farewell lunch in his honour, Brian shared many amusing and heart-warming anecdotes about his time in the industry, including dinner with Walter Matthau, Jack Lemon, Cary Grant and Gregory Peck.

“Brian has been a true bastion of the Haymarket’s character and charm,” said the Theatre’s Chairman Arnold Crook. “Having welcomed many of our renowned actors and production teams across his 33 year tenure, Brian will be sorely missed and we all wish him the best.”

Ralph Otto and Alex Richards will be picking up the mantle alongside our current keeper Anthony Fisher.
