Local Hero Musical - London 2023
« on: February 18, 2022, 11:18:43 AM »
I don't know how reliable this is:

"This production has now been postponed until 2023 – with full dates to be announced."

https://www.westendtheatre.com/66017/shows/local-hero-tickets/

If this is true, this would be another hope gone for 2022.

It's the Old Vic site, so yes, I bet it is realiable.

We are having information on it very soon, before March, can't say more about this, sorry.
You might get lucky, now and then

Even if it is postponed for yet another year till 2023 it leaves room for speculation that it could go ahead at The Old Vic after all.
Which would be quite nice since it's a charming and intimate little theatre.
And they are constructing a stylish new "Annex".

Old Vic site annouces some plays until July 9th 2022 so I had hope that next on schedule was Local Hero, I hope there are, as I noticed that the link you sent is not really from the Old Vic (my fault) but refers to it.

Old Vic web doesn't mention anything about 2023, yet. If other tickets sites are talking about that, I fear they are right, and we'll have to wait another year, but the good news is they are coming back.

We will know in hopefully a week.

What can be read on the website of the production company NEAL STREET does also not exclude a run at The Old Vic:

"A transfer to the Old Vic, London, originally planned for summer of 2020 was postponed due to the Coronavirus pandemic. Future plans for the production will be announced in due course."

From what Guy was telling at his forum, I understood than they would be moving the musical to other theatre, specially since the Old Vic didn't postponed it, but cancelled, but it makes sense that it's the Old Vic who host it, as from the beguining it was a co-production of the Lyceum in Edinburgh and the Old Vic in London.

Also when the Old Vic called the people to return the money of the tickets, they said to many people, including me, that they wanted to have it back when the pandemic allows them to host a play with so many people on stage.

I sent an email to the Old Vic, refering to that site that says it will come back on 2023, and the Old Vic says that they cancelled the show, and it's not returning to their stage.

So it look likes it would finally be back on another theater!

Thanks for the info and for asking them.
That keeps up the suspense.
