Stephen Ward Musical to close on 29th March

The new Andrew Lloyd Webber musical Stephen Ward based on the Profumo scandal is to shutter early on 29th March after running for less than four months.  It was booking until May.

In a press statement co-producer Robert Fox said: "I am very proud of the show and our wonderful company. Andrew has never been afraid to embrace difficult and challenging subject matters and Ward’s strong and compelling story highlights a serious miscarriage of justice. The piece set out to explore his  fascinating life as a piece of serious theatre which has now been told to a new generation. The strong critical reviews commend what I think is possibly Andrew's best score in years, paired with some of the finest writing and lyrics Don and Christopher have ever delivered. I am very sad to see the show close in London but firmly believe this piece will be seen by many audiences in the future."
