Madness Musical, Our House, to End London Run in August

News   Madness Musical, Our House, to End London Run in August The Madness musical Our House is to finish its run at the Cambridge Theatre Aug. 16.

The show, which looks at two possible directions a young man's life can take when he's faced with a major moral decision, has been hugely popular with largely young audiences, indicating that Madness's songs — like "Our House" and "Baggy Trousers" — are as effective now as when written some 20 years ago.

The show's success is also due to Tim Firth's book, Matthew Warchus' direction and a young and enthusiastic cast, many of them making their West End debut. The August closure isn't the end of the show, however, as a tour is expected in 2004.

Industry rumor has it that Our House will be replaced by Jerry Springer —The Opera when it transfers into the West End this autumn.
