RADIO TIMES – which was due to follow the critically acclaimed Titanic as the second offering in director Thom Southerland and producer Danielle Tarento’s season of musicals at Charing Cross Theatre – has been postponed. RADIO TIMES, directed by Ben Woolf, had been scheduled to run from 20 August to 1 October (press night: 26 August). Theatregoers who had already booked for Radio Times can arrange refunds through their ticket supplier.
In a statement given to My Theatre Mates, the producers said:
“Sadly, due to artist non-availability, we are unable to present the production on the dates originally planned. We hope to present the production at a later date.”
Further ahead, the season continues as scheduled with the revival of Ragtime (8 October-26 November) and the European premiere of Death Takes a Holiday (3 December-21 January).
RADIO TIMES is set in the heart of London’s Blitz-torn West End, where the cast of BBC’s light-entertainment radio show, Variety Bandwagon are doing their bit for the war effort. But with the bombs falling outside, can star of the show, Sammy Shaw, hang on to his leading lady and broadcast live to America for the very first time?
Chock-full of quick-fire gags, side-splitting routines and classic songs from one of our ‘best of British’ musical talents, Noel Gay, the composer of Me and My Girl, RADIO TIMES features 40’s favourites such as Run Rabbit Run, Hey Little Hen, My Thanks To You and There’s Something About a Soldier.
