Peter Pan, the opening production at the Troubadour White City Theatre in west London, will close nearly two months earlier than planned, producers have announced.
Sally Cookson’s devised adaptation of the JM Barrie novel began performances at the theatre on July 20 and will have played for just six of the scheduled 14 weeks when it closes on September 1.
It had been due to continue until October 27.
A statement from the producers said: “The production received acclaim from critics and a hugely positive reaction from audiences, however due to ticket sales we have reluctantly taken the decision to close in September. We’d like to thank our wonderfully talented cast and creative team for all of their hard work, as well as the audiences who have enjoyed the production.”
The production is the first show to play at Troubadour White City, one of two new theatres that were launched last month by the team behind the King’s Cross Theatre.
The White City venue is situated on part of the former BBC Media Village, while the second theatre, Troubadour Wembley Park, is located in the former Fountain television studios.
Peter Pan is produced by the National Theatre – where it originally ran – BOS Productions and Runaway Entertainment.
The theatre said any customers holding tickets for scheduled performances after September 1 should contact their ticket provider for a refund or credit.
