BETTY BLUE EYES to Return for West End Tour, Spring 2014?
According to a recent tweet by Stiles and Drewe, there may be a UK tour of BETTY BLUE EYES set for the Spring of 2014.
The tweet said: "Almost finished tidying up the script of Betty Blue Eyes ready for a new UK production in Spring 2014."
Cameron Mackintosh's musical comedy BETTY BLUE EYES, based on the Alan Bennett and Malcolm Mowbray film 'A Private Function', closed at the Novello Theatre on Saturday 24 September 2011 after a run of six months.
After receiving some of the best reviews seen for a brand new musical in the past 20 years and despite an enormously enthusiastic reaction from audiences each night, the new musical had failed to attract an audience in sufficient numbers to remain economically viable. It seemed that the prevailing economic uncertainties nationally are leading audiences to take less risks on spending their money on new and unknown work and to seek refuge in safe and familiar titles and material. It is, perhaps, significant that 'LES MISERABLES' and 'The Phantom of the Opera' continue to play to packed houses every night.
