Daddy Cool UK Tour starring Sheila Ferguson and Jane McDonald cancelled

A UK tour of the Boney M musical Daddy Cool starring Jane McDonald  and Sheila Ferguson has been cancelled.  It was due to start in Northampton in October and tour until 8th December when it closed at Sunderland Empire.

This is second time a planned touring production of the show has been axed (the first in 2007) and also the production which opened in Mallorca in June which was set to run until later this month closed after just a few performances.

The production was being produced by Robert Mackintosh for Robert Mackintosh International and MEG, as well as Albert Verlinde Entertainment, in association with the Booking Office.The producers are currently unavailable for comment.

The show’s official website states: “the first two weeks of the planned season showed clearly that we will not achieve the amount of visitors needed to cover the running costs for the show and its top cast”.
