West End Contact to Close Early

News   West End Contact to Close Early The London production of the Tony Award-winning musical Contact will close earlier than expected.

The dance musical by Susan Stroman and John Weidman had originally posted a May 31 closing; the production will now end its run May 10. Contact opened at the Queens Theatre, Shaftesbury Avenue, Oct. 23, 2003. Contact is divided into three stories: the first set in eighteenth century France, the second in a 1950’s New York restaurant patronized by the Mafia, and the third in modern-day New York where a successful but lonely advertising executive makes contact with his emotions when he falls for a girl in a yellow dress at a dance club.

A huge hit in New York, Contact's London production stars Leigh Zimmerman, Michael Praed, Sarah Wildor and Craig Urbani.
