Good news, Yanks! Tom Hiddleston is now in New York, and he will be here for several months. Tom barely uses his social media at this point, but a few days after he was seen at the Wimbledon men’s final on Sunday, Tom arrived in New York and posted this selfie on Instagram. The Jacobs Theatre is where the revival of Harold Pinter’s Betrayal is being staged, after the play’s successful revival in London. Tom Hiddleston is coming for ALL THE TONYS. No, I have no idea if he’s coming for the Tonys, honestly. I would think that this revival would be eligible for next year’s Tony Awards, but no guarantees.

Betrayal has a 17-week run at the Jacobs Theatre, starting August 14th, and tickets went on sale this week. I would imagine that Tom had some time off, got to enjoy some tennis, and now he’ll be in rehearsals for several weeks, then maybe some preview performances, then the big opening on August 14th. Is Hiddleston going to have a Hot Girl Summer in the City? Perhaps. No joke, I genuinely hope we get some fun New York gossip from TWHiddles this summer. He’s figured out how to be really undercover in London, so I need him to go to some New York hot-spots ASAP. New York Dragonflies, prepare yourselves.

    I’m buying my ticket this week I think. I bought tickets to see Hugh Jackman and Daniel Craig on Broadway years ago as well. I would love to get to see Hiddlesbae in person as well. And I love theater and NYC so it’s a win all around!

    The veranda is open through the duration.

    The other actors didn’t travel over with him so rehearsals probably don’t start for another week. He was doing promo stuff with the producer and director.

    Some guy filmed a video of him and Emily Vaughan-Barratt, the producer, walking in Central Park. Lots of cameras will probably be following him around.

    LEGO Loki posted a replica of the selfie almost immediately and the producers reached out and asked about an enactment of the play. LEGO Loki is obliging. That promises to be hilarious.

    MCU is at SDCC Saturday so I wouldn’t be surprised if he makes an appearance, especially as there is now a Thor 4 in the works.

      Lego Loki did a complete LEGO version of the Betrayal play programme for the London production. He gave copies to the cast. I’m guessing the New York production wants there to be something more officially sanctioned. Don’t know how to do links here, but: The LEGO Betrayal Book

      Lego Loki also has the entirety of Hamlet online and LEGOHamlet, and much of Coriolanus as well. Must confess that my following of Hiddleston is pretty much via Lego Loki, which is a feed amusing and nerdy enough to stand on its own.

      • Lightpurple says:

        LEGO Loki is pure genius and a brilliant use of Twitter. I saw the Betrayal program before. They were asking for a LEGO recreation of the set. I’m hoping they put it on display here in theater. Official LEGO has actually done some recreations of some historic theater venues here in Boston and they are displayed in the buildings.

        Of course, there is the masterpiece that is LEGO Loki High-Rise, based more closely on the book than the movie, so, a lot more dogs.

        And the fabulous short film: Only Loki Left Alive.

        Thank-you for the link, I had no idea that such a thing existed. You have just made a very long day much better!

    OH MY GOD. This just somehow made my day so much better lol SOMEONE BRING HIM TO THE JOHN MAYER CONCERT AT MSG AND SIT HIM NEXT TO ME.

    Sunshine in a crappy week!!

    Break a leg Tom!

    He was also apartment hunting – someone was working out in the gym of the apartment complex that his/her grandfather is the SI for – the person looked up and saw Tom come in (Tom said “Hi”). I wonder if Bobby will come with him eventually. I doubt if he is in the city for good quite yet. He had a large and apparently heavy bag with him (it actually had a “heavy” sticker on it when he was pictured – with Emily Vaughan-Barratt, the producer) at JFK. SDCC would certainly be a possibility!

    I got my ticket for October!

    Also if you can’t afford see the play (or don’t want to), you can always stalk/I mean stake out the stage door where they come out if you want your Hiddles-fix (I didn’t know you could do this and then I did it when I saw Rock of Ages and it was AWESOME!) I also saw Alison Janney when she came out and she stopped to talk to people and sign autographs, etc. Because I didn’t see the play, I stood off to the side and it was still super cool to see her!

    I hope Tom has a Hot Girl Summer in New York 🙂
