The first two previews of the new West End musical Charlie and the Chocolate Factory — due to begin performances at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane May 17 — have been canceled.
Those performances (May 17-18) will be replaced by an additional preview May 22, which will now become the show's first public preview, and another extra performance to be scheduled during a forthcoming holiday period, to be announced.
According to a press statement, "Unforeseen problems in the delivery of a piece of stage engineering by a contractor have caused delays to the schedule." Ryan Petersen, a spokesman for the production, commented, "The whole production team is frustrated by this unforeseen delay in what has otherwise been a very smooth and exciting rehearsal period."
You're invited to spend an evening filled with personal tales of difficult choices, bad breaks, worse men and some of the most glorious songs ever written. It's an intimate evening, up close with a legend.
So pull up a chair and order up a drink. Because she's got a life to sing. Tickets as low as $85!
