It’s been announced that the UK premiere of AMOUR, currently running at London’s Charing Cross Theatre, is to close early.
Michel Legrand’s musical, which opened at the Embankment theatre last month, is to now close on 8th June, after originally being scheduled to run at the venue to 20th July.
Producer Danielle Tarento said: ‘I want to thank and applaud the brilliant company and creative team who created a beautiful production that received critical acclaim, nightly standing ovations and received 8 Off-West End Award nominations. I am so incredibly proud of this gorgeous show and I hope London will give it the rousing send-off it deserves in its final two weeks.’
