Performances Cancelled Through January 11 for THE CURIOUS INCIDENT OF THE DOG IN THE NIGHT TIME Due to Apollo Theatre Collapse
As BroadwayWorld previously reported, the ceiling of the West End's Apollo Theatre collapsed last Thursday, December 19th during the performance of The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night Time. Ten audience members were injured as a result. According to the report, the owner of the building claimed last year that the theatre had 'suffered years of benign neglect'.
Nica Burns, co-owner and chief executive of Nimax Theatres, said in an interview last year that it had a budget of a mere £2.45 million to restore its five West End playhouses. Speaking to Theatres Magazine, Ms Burns commented, "Before we could start on the improvements, we had to address the damp. Water attacks the building from above and below."
Now according to the show's official Facebook page, the production has cancelled performances through January 11 because of the damage. Those who already purchased tickets for those performances should contact the original point of purchase.
