McQueen cancels first previews at the Theatre Royal Haymarket

The Stage has announced that McQueen has delayed the start of previews at the Theatre Royal Haymarket.

Following its premiere at the St James Theatre, the play was scheduled to begin performances in the West End on 13th August 2015; however, Georgia Snow reports that McQueen will now play its first performance on 22nd August 2015 as the show's rehearsal period has "overrun". Press night will still take place on 27th August 2015. 

Producers said: "With all the changes that were being made to the production for the transfer to the Theatre Royal Haymarket, we needed a longer technical rehearsal period than we’d originally allowed in the schedule and, in order to be totally ready to present the production in front of an audience, we took the difficult decision to cancel the first few previews."

Written by James Phillips and directed by John Caird, the production stars Stephen Wight, Tracy-Ann Oberman and Laura Rees reprising their performances as Alexander McQueen, Isabella Blow and Arabella. Joining the cast are Carly Bawden as Dahlia and Michael Bertenshaw as Mr Hitchcock.

Ticket holders for cancelled performances should contact their point of purchase.
