We Will Rock You, the musical based on the songs of Queen at the Dominion Theatre, have announced that beginning May 24, 2002 (inclusive) there will be no Friday matinee (5 PM) performances. In addition from May 31, 2002 (inclusive), the starting time of the Friday evening performance will be brought forward by one hour to 7:30 PM, to tie in with the evening performance time during the rest of the week.
The musical, which opened last week, will now be playing a performance schedule of seven performances a week, rather than the originally planned, and more usual, eight.
Perhaps it has something to do with the Dominion Theatre, but the previous resident musical at that theatre, Notre Dame de Paris also canceled their mid-week matinee performances shortly after opening.
