London Theatre News Today: Tuesday 16 February

Published 16 February 2021

Sister Act The Musical at London’s Eventim Apollo postponed until July 2022

Due to the current and ongoing pandemic restrictions and the knock-on effect this has had to the international production’s schedule, Jamie Wilson and Whoopi Goldberg, the producers of Sister Act The Musical, have sadly come to the decision that it is impossible to open the show in London this summer and have postponed performances at the Eventim Apollo until 2022. The new dates for the production in London are 19 July 2022 – 28 August 2022.

This necessary change of date now means that Whoopi Goldberg will no longer be able to appear in the role of Deloris Van Cartier.

Goldberg says, “SISTER ACT is near and dear to my heart and I’m disappointed that I will be unable to perform in this production under the circumstances.  However, my producing partners and I will continue to work towards mounting a fantastic production, with an amazing new cast and we look forward to presenting it when it can be done safely for everyone onstage, behind the scenes and in the audience.”

Producer Jamie Wilson says “This new version of Sister Act The Musical has been in development for several years now and both Whoopi and I are committed to launching this celebratory, joyous and life affirming production with audiences in the UK. We can’t wait for everyone involved in the show to get back to doing what they love. We are now in the process of putting together a star-studded cast and will be able to share this news with you soon. We look forward to us all supporting and celebrating theatre when we return to the stage. It will be worth the wait”.

Casting for the role of Deloris Van Cartier and all other roles for the London performances of Sister Act in 2022, together with an announcement in regards to the UK tour of the show along with casting for the UK tour, will be made soon.

All patrons who have booked for Sister Act at London’s Eventim Apollo will be contacted directly by their point of sale/ticket provider shortly and do not need to contact the Box Office directly themselves. All existing ticket holders have been moved in to the same seats for equivalent performances by day of week for the 2022 run, with the option for a refund for patrons who would prefer this.

Due to the ongoing Covid-19 restrictions, the producers have taken the difficult decision to postpone the forthcoming run of Good, starring David Tennant, which was due to play from 21 April – 17 July 2021.

The production will be rescheduled to run at the Harold Pinter Theatre and will still star David Tennant, Fenella Woolgar and Elliot Levey.

Current ticket holders do not have to do anything right now.  Their point of purchase will be in touch directly regarding the booking and existing patrons will be given priority access to the new dates before they are made available publicly.

The producers thank you for your continued commitment to the theatre community at this challenging time and look forward to sharing the production once it is safe to do so.

 

We know it all seems a little doom and gloom while we wait for theatres to reopen, but please don’t let that dishearten you. There is lots of amazing theatre to enjoy online and you can always join us for Theatre Chat Live tonight at 6pm on our Instagram channel to talk about all things theatre with like-minded fans! If there’s anything that’ll cheer us up, it’s the magic of theatre.

Due to the current pandemic various venues and productions are making announcements for their individual shows. Please bear with us as we try to keep this page as up to date as possible. If you find a mistake, please let us know by emailing enquiries@soltukt.co.uk. If you click through to seat selection (where you'll see either best available or a seating plan), you will be seeing the most up-to-date prices. If this differs from what we've written on the calendar, please bear with us, as those prices will update soon.

We now sell our famous TKTS Booth discounts online here at Official London Theatre.

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.

While theatres are currently closed, various venues and productions are making announcements for their individual shows, including cancellations and rescheduled performances. Please check with the individual shows for details.
