At the forefront of the hit TV show, Stranger Things is the world-weary police chief Jim Hopper. The character has been a hit with audiences and is often considered a fan favourite. The First Shadow gives us a peek behind the curtain to see Hopper’s origin story, showing how the great legend came to be. Set in the 1950s, this thrilling adventure is a prequel to the events of Stranger Things, answering many fan theories once and for all. It has been said that not only will it take fans to the beginning of the saga, but it may even tell us a few things about the very end.
Stranger Things first burst onto our television screens in 2016, where it soon became a staple of pop culture. The show garnered record viewership, and it remains one of the most-watched original programmes on Netflix. It drew critical acclaim too, with praise for its originality, feelings of nostalgia, and characterisation. The TV series has acquired a major fanbase over these past few years, with the official Stranger Things Twitter account accumulating over 5 million followers. As a result, The First Shadow is likely to be a hot ticket!
At the helm of this production is director Stephen Daldry, who has previously been the recipient of both Olivier and Tony Awards for his work in the theatre. Daldry is perhaps most well-known for having directed Billy Elliot the Musical, which was one of the longest-running shows in West End history. He is one of Britain’s most talented directors, and many are eager to see his approach to the Stranger Things universe.
