British Timothée Chalamet stans were thrilled when the actor recently announced London stage debut. He'll star in a production of Amy Herzog's Pulitzer-nominated play 4,000 Miles at London's Old Vic Theater. The play follows 21-year-old Leo who, after experiencing a tragedy on a cross-country cycling tour, moves in with his 91-year-old grandmother Vera in Manhattan.
Now comes the hard part. Ticketing for 4,000 miles opened today, and based on Twitter, Timmy devotees are having a rough time getting their hands on spots. Thousands of teen girls plus Derek (the leader of Timothée Chalamet Twitter) spent this morning in a long virtual queue, waiting as much as five hours to pay their £20-150 for their tickets.
And after 5 bloody hours of queue - I got the ticket! 😍😍😍
@RealChalamet at the @oldvictheatre I will be there!
The frenzy — rare for a stage play, but very similar to those that occur when major pop tours open — has unshockingly revealed that Timothée Chalamet and Harry Styles's fanbases have significant overlap.
it's official next year im gonna see timothée chalamet, harry styles and taylor swift
Happy stanning y'all. 4,000 miles opens April 16. To stem your Timmy appetite until then (or if, like us, you sadly don't live in England or have spare cash for a plane ticket), The King is streaming and Little Women opens December 25.
