Beautiful Thing cuts short UK tour & cancels London run

It has been announced that Beautiful Thing's UK tour will close early at the Leicester Curve Theatre on Saturday 30th May. The show's upcoming London run at the Arts Theatre has also been cancelled. 

Tom O'Connell (producer) 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."

The full cast of Nikolai Foster's production includes Gerard McCarthy (Hollyoaks), Vanessa Babirye (Our Girl), Charlie Brooks (EastEnders), Thomas Law (EastEnders) and Sam Jackson (Skins).

Ticket holders should contact their point of purchase.

West End Frame sends their best wishes to everyone working on the production
