London’s Zipp! to Close

News   London’s Zipp! to Close Zipp!, the acclaimed London musical, is closing early.

There’s just a week left to catch Gyles Brandreth and his merry men (and women) in Zipp!, the show that covers 100 musicals in 90 minutes. Zipp! opened at the Duchess Theatre on Feb. 4 and earned rave reviews, but it is ending its run April 5, two weeks earlier than previously announced.

It will be replaced by Through The Leaves, which transfers from the Southwark Playhouse and opens at the Duchess on April 28. Through the Leaves stars Simon Callow, whose West End profile is rising at the moment; he is director of Jus’ Like That, the Tommy Cooper comedy that opens at the Garrick Theatre on April 8.
