Another day passed, and we’ve once again rounded up the best London theatre news today fresh for you!

We got a look at the production photos of The Man In The White Suit, which has it’s world premiere tomorrow at Wyndham’s Theatre, and they look great!

Stephen Mangan stars in the titular role in a story about an inventor who creates a suit that never gets dirty and never wears out – a discovery that sends shockwaves through the business world. Soon, bosses and workers in the garment industry alight chase the man in the white suit who is destroying their livelihoods.

Sean Foley’s new adaptation also stars Kara Tointon (Twelfth Night, Absent Friends) and Sue Johnston (Coronation Street, The Royle Family).

The cast of Everybody’s Talking About Jamie changes on Monday, with Phil Nichol reprising the role of Hugo/ Loco Chanelle and Melissa Jaques joining the cast as Margaret New, the role she has been understudying for over a year. Check out this fab photo of the finale at the Apollo Theatre, complete with the new cast from Monday. And best of luck to the current company for their final performances over the weekend!

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.
