Andrew Lloyd Webber's Cinderella to open at the Gillian Lynne Theatre in April 2021
Updated: Jan 12, 2021
Producers The Really Useful Group announced today that Andrew Lloyd Webber’s new musical Cinderella will now world premiere at the Gillian Lynne Theatre in London on Wednesday 7 April 2021, with previews from Friday 19 March 2021.
Andrew Lloyd Webber said, “Whilst I continue to impress on the government that theatres can reopen safely based on The London Palladium model, it has become clear that we need to move the opening of Cinderella to next Spring. My teams have been working throughout lockdown to prepare the show and are raring to go, but there are key elements, not least casting and the building of sets and costumes, that take months of forward planning and can only start as we get further down the road to normal. So the show will absolutely go on, just a little later than I’d hoped.”
The LW Theatres team said:
If you are a ticketholder you do not need to do anything. We’ll be in contact with you very soon to confirm the new date for your booking.
We’re contacting all our guests in order of performance date, so please bear with us. As you can imagine we’re dealing with a high volume of queries at the moment, but be assured we’re working tirelessly to get back to everybody as soon as we possibly can.
