Tickets are now on sale for The Michael Grandage Season, due to start at Wyndham's Theatre from 4 May 2018.
Two plays are on offer: John Logan's Red about artist Mark Rothko and Martin McDonagh's critically acclaimed, satire on terrorism, The Lieutenant of Inishmore.
First up, from 4 May to 28 July at Wyndham's Theatre, will see award-winning stage and screen actor Alfred Molina reprise his critically acclaimed performance as the American abstract expressionist painter Mark Rothko.
He will be joined by rising star Alfred Enoch of US television drama series How to Get Away With Murder as his assistant Ken.
This is the first UK revival since Michael Grandage directed the world première at the Donmar Warehouse in 2009.
The production went on to win six Tony Awards including Best Play.
Red reunites John Logan and Michael Grandage following Peter and Alice with Judi Dench and Ben Whishaw which formed part of MGC's inaugural season in the West End in 2013, and their feature film Genius.
Under the watchful gaze of his young assistant, and the threatening presence of a new generation of artists, Mark Rothko takes on his greatest challenge yet: to create a definitive work for an extraordinary setting.

The Lieutenant of Inishmore
Then, from 23 June to 8 September 2018 at the Noël Coward Theatre, Aidan Turner, best known for playing the title role in the BBC hit series Poldark, returns to the West End to play Padraic in a rare revival of Martin McDonagh's critically acclaimed, brilliant satire on terrorism, The Lieutenant of Inishmore.
This production follows Michael Grandage's award-winning production of McDonagh's The Cripple of Inishmaan in 2013.
Who knocked Mad Padraic's cat over on a lonely road on the island of Inishmore and was it an accident?
He'll want to know when he gets back from a stint of torture and chip-shop bombing in Northern Ireland: he loves that cat more than life itself.
