The West End runs end Aug. 31 for four high-profile productions: A Chorus Line, The Cripple of Inishmaan, Sweet Bird of Youth and Relatively Speaking.

A Chorus Line was originally booking through Jan. 2, 2014, but is closing after a six-month run, with the producers stating that they are finalizing European and U.K. touring plans. In a press statement at the time the early close was announced, Mark Goucher commented, "We are extremely proud of this production of A Chorus Line and would like to thank the cast and creative team for their exceptional work. It has been a huge privilege bringing this extraordinary show back to life on the London stage. We will be very sad to see it close."

Leigh Zimmerman, who plays Sheila, won Best Performance in a Supporting Role in a Musical at this year's Laurence Olivier Awards, and the production was also nominated for Best Musical Revival.
