Andrew Lloyd Webber has revealed that he is pushing ahead with his new production of Cinderella, to open at The Gillian Lynne Theatre in Covent Garden from 14 July.
Lloyd Webber said: "I am buoyed by the government's roadmap announcement last week and am absolutely prepared to do my part to get theatre open again this summer.
I want to lead the way and give others confidence to follow suit by getting major musicals back open. They are the powerhouse of the West End and have been out of action for almost a year now.
So I have put the wheels in motion for a summer reopening. We start rehearsals for my new musical Cinderella at The Gillian Lynne Theatre today. The script is by multiple Golden Globe-nominated Emerald Fennell and isn't like any Cinderella you will have seen.
I cannot wait to welcome back audiences to live theatre and bring life, employment and joy back to our capital city after a harrowing past year."
