Leicester Curve to remain shut through January

Leicester Curve put the following statement out today regarding upcoming productions:

“Given the continued uncertainty of when Leicester will leave Tier 3, we have made the difficult decision to remain closed to the public throughout January; we are sorry productions of Hair The Musical – In COncert and Memoirs Of An Asian Football Casual have now been cancelled. It goes against all of our instincts to temporarily close the theatre, but the unpredictability around the tier system is not compatible with producing theatre and we cannot continue to invest resources into projects that may not be able to happen.

“We remain optimistic our February programme will go ahead and we are determined Memoir will return to our stage in the future. Please be assured all customers who have purchased tickets for both cancelled shows will be contacted by our Box Office team shortly. Full refunds will be available.

“In the meantime, we hope audiences will join us online for our production of Sunset Boulevard In Concert – At Home which is available to stream between Tue 22 Dec – Sat 9 Jan. Household tickets cost just £20 and can be purchased by visiting curveonline.co.uk or by calling our Box Office team on 0116 242 3595.”

The Play That Goes Wrong returns on tour in 2021

The Play That Goes Wrong, the Olivier Award-winning box office hit, is back for its fourth UK Tour in the new year.

Alice In Streamingland: A Binge-Worthy Musical Panto, running until 3 January 2021

Well, it takes two lockdowns for us to realise how much we appreciate Lockdown Streaming TV! Alice in Streamingland is a pansexual musical pantomime celebrating Alice’s fall into the world of Streamingland – those streaming entertainment channels we couldn’t do without over the last nine months.

Alice in Streamingland

This LIVE, adult musical pantomime finds Alice following the White Rabbit down the rabbit hole into Interflixland, Disney C Minusland, and iPlayerland as she struggles to get home. Will the Evil Queen of Hearts take over as Vice President of Global TV, will The White Knight win through with his new “Made in Streamingland” reality show, or will Alice triumph against all odds as she records her journey for her TokTik channel?

Along the way, she’ll meet all the familiar Wonderland characters – but with a twist – who would have thought that the Queen of Hearts would be played by RuPaul, The White Rabbit by Joe Exotic, The Cheshire Cat by Moira Rose, or the Duchess by Dot Cotton?!

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

In order for us to serve our audiences the best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 31 May. Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider. Our producers continue to plan for all eventualities dependent on the individual needs of their shows and we will provide further updates on specific shows as and when they become available.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.

For more than 40 years, TKTS was our on-the-day theatre ticket box office in Leicester Square. Currently closed due to the current situation, we are now selling our great last minute seats and prices online. Click here to learn more.
