Extensions for The Railway Children, In The Heights and The Woman In Black
It’s that time again when some well known shows that have been successful at entertaining the capital’s audiences announce their latest booking extensions. This time two of the shows gracing the stage of the King’s Cross Theatre – The Railway Children and In The Heights – are the culprits alongside the Fortune Theatre’s The Woman in Black.
The first of these shows – The Railway Children – has been seen in the capital on multiple occasions and is the reason that the specially built venue at King’s Cross was constructed. It is based on the beloved E Nesbit novel of the same name and follows the characters of Bobby, Peter and Phyllis as they are moved to the countryside following the loss of their father. They must readjust to life away from London and amongst the green surrounding of Yorkshire, where they befriend a local railway porter and a new adventure begins.
The popular show has previously been staged at the York National Railway Museum and at a venue at Waterloo Station prior to arriving in King’s Cross, with a railway carriage from the mentioned museum presented as part of the show. It has introduced an array of theatregoers to the story and has ensured a lasting legacy.
The show continues at the King’s Cross Theatre and is now booking for performances up to Sunday 30th October 2016.
Meanwhile, another show opened at the same venue just before Christmas in the form of In The Heights. This is a successful Broadway musical that previously played at the Southwark Playhouse and now takes audiences on Euston Road to the Washington Heights community of New York City, where the stories of its inhabitants emerge.
It too has managed to attract a lot of attention and its own booking extension takes up to the same date as above as performances continue to Sunday 30th October 2016.
Finally, we turn our attentions to the West End, where The Woman In Black continues to scare audiences at the Fortune Theatre. The well known show has been running since 1989 and is known around the country thanks to the original novel by Susan Hill and because of the 2012 film with Daniel Radcliffe.
