Further touring dates in Bradford, Cardiff, Dublin, Edinburgh, Bristol, Manchester, Southampton and Birmingham have also been announced.

The final West End performance will be a specially staged version, featuring the entire roster of children stars and ensembles. Director Stephen Daldry has told the Daily Mail newspaper, that because “there are four Billys, four Michaels — four of everything concerning the children [who usually alternate performances in their roles] — we thought everyone should be in the last show. All the boys and girls will share the roles on the last night.”
