The production's sell-out run at the Menier Chocolate Factory closed March 5, 2016; it had previously been announced that it will then begin performances at the West End's Savoy Theatre April 9, prior to an official opening April 20. It was initially booking for a limited 12-week run only through July 12, but booking was subsequently extended through Sept. 10, and has now been extended again through Oct. 8.

The West End run is being produced by Sonia Friedman Productions, Scott Landis Productions, Chocolate Factory Productions and Finnemore & Co Inc.

The production is directed by Michael Mayer, with choreography by Lynne Page, set design by Michael Pavelka, costume design by Matthew Wright, lighting design by Mark Henderson and sound design by Richard Brooker. The musical supervisor is Alan Williams, and orchestrations are by Chris Walker. Harvey Fierstein has adapted the original book.

Tickets for the extension period go on sale Feb. 8.
