The producers of Beautiful Thing have announced the early closure of the touring production. The last date will at the Leicester Curve on Saturday 30 May 2015.
Executive producer Tom O’Connell said, “It is with great regret that we have made the difficult decision to close Beautiful Thing early, but we are all immensely proud to have produced the show, led by a fantastic company and cast. After we staged an acclaimed West End season of the production in 2013, I hoped that this new tour would prove to be as successful, but unfortunately the touring market can be an unpredictable place, as the closure of a number of high profile productions recently has shown.
“Jonathan Harvey’s Beautiful Thing remains a landmark and deeply relevant piece of theatre, and I thank every audience member who has come to see the show and who booked to see it elsewhere.”
Beautiful Thing will play at Royal and Derngate Northampton 18-23 May and then Leicester Curve from 25-30 May 2015. Dates in Cardiff, Brighton and at London¹s Art Theatre, where it was due to run from 3 June to 11 July. Ticket holders are advised to contact their point of sale. http://www.beautthing.com/
