Extensions for Close To You, The Railway Children and In The Heights
It’s that time again when we report on booking changes to various shows running in the capital. The West End’s Close To You: Bacharach Reimagined has added new dates, whilst the King’s Cross Theatre’s The Railway Children and In The Heights also extend, giving audiences more options when it comes to deciding on performances.
Close To You: Bacharach Reimagined is the hit transfer from the Menier Chocolate Factory that has been running at the Criterion Theatre since October. A celebration of the work of the acclaimed singer songwriter Burt Bacharach, it features reinterpreted versions of his well known songs, including Close To You, Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head, What’s New Pussycat and Magic Moments, amongst others.
It’s the brainchild of Kyle Riabko and he also performs alongside a wealth of others under the direction of Steven Hoggett.
It continues at its home of the Criterion Theatre and is now taking bookings at the West End venue to Sunday 14th February 2016.
Meanwhile, both The Railway Children and In The Heights run at the King’s Cross Theatre, next to the famous rail hub in central London. The venue is a purpose-built one that is shaped like a station with platforms (and The Audience) either side of the tracks.
The Railway Children is the classic story by E Nesbit that tells the tale of a family who move to the countryside following the disappearance of their father. Amongst the family members are Bobbie, Peter and Phyllis, who must get used to life outside of the city and form a friendship with the local railway porter.
In The Heights also plays at the location, having moved into the Railway Children’s home in October, and was initially due to close four weeks later, but has since been extended. The current extension is its second it gives audiences plenty of opportunities to see the story set in the Washington Heights community of Manhattan.
So both continue at the King’s Cross Theatre and they are now booking at the venue for performances up to Sunday 10th April 2016.
