Co-produced by Stage Entertainment and Syco Entertainment, the musical is is co-written by Harry Hill and composer Steve Brown and features Nigel Harman as "X Factor" supremo Simon and Cynthia Erivo and Alan Morrisey as lovestruck contestants Chenice and Max, respectively.
In a press statement, Rebecca Quigley, CEO of Stage Entertainment UK, has commented, "We are sad to be bringing I Can’t Sing! to a close but are immensely proud to have co-produced the show. The West End can be an unpredictable place as the closure of a number of high profile productions recently has shown. I Can’t Sing! has had audiences on their feet night after night, four and five star reviews from the critics and an amazing company and creative team, but it seems that isn’t always enough."
She continued, "To open any big musical, and particularly a brand new British musical comedy at the London Palladium, is no mean feat and hundreds of dedicated people have played a part in bringing this unique and wonderful show to the stage. I thank every one of those people and the audiences who have come to see the production."
Nigel Hall of Syco Entertainment added, “From the moment Harry Hill and Steve Brown told us their idea for I Can't Sing! we knew this was going to be a fun project. Alongside Stage Entertainment we’d like to thank the cast and crew who have worked so hard on this show. To everyone at Really Useful Theatres and the ever supportive staff at the London Palladium, and everyone involved in I Can’t Sing! I’d like to say a huge thanks and the very best of luck with their next venture."
