Extensions for Jersey Boys and Curious Incident as Two Shows Announce Closures
Man Of Steal and Let It Be Reveal End-Dates in the West End
Some of the capital’s shows have announced changes to their booking periods for the months ahead, with two of the most popular productions in town adding new dates and another two announcing their closures. Both Jersey Boys and The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time will continue to entertain audiences to February 2016, whilst Let It Be and Man Of Steal will close this year.
Jersey Boys is the long-running musical at the Piccadilly Theatre, which tells the story of the rise of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, from their humble origins to their meteoric climb to the top, which saw them release songs like December, 1963 (Oh What A Night) and others. Such hits can be heard as part of the score.
The production opened in the West End at the Prince Edward Theatre in 2008 and is now booking at the Piccadilly Theatre for dates up to Sunday 14th February 2016.
The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time, on the other hand, is a more recent addition to the West End. It opened at the National Theatre in 2012 before transferring to the Apollo Theatre the following year – a run that was short-lived due to the venue’s ceiling collapse. It subsequently reopened at the Gielgud Theatre and continues to pull in the crowds.
The story of Christopher and his attempts to discover the mystery of his neighbour’s dead dog is now booking at the Gielgud Theatre for dates up to Saturday 13th February 2016.
Another popular show in the West End is Let It Be, but its success has not stopped it from announcing an early closure as it brings its run at the Garrick Theatre to an end this September. It was due to bow out towards the end of the month but has now announced it will end on Saturday 5th September 2015 instead.
Another closure-announcement comes from Man Of Steal, the magic show from James Freedman, which was due to continue to July but will now bow out at Trafalgar Studios 1 on Saturday 20th June 2015.
