It has been announced that the production of Radio Times at Charing Cross Theatre, that was due to play from 20 August – 1 October, is being postponed.
The show is set in the heart of London’s Blitz-torn West End, the cast of BBC’s light-entertainment radio show, Variety Bandwagon are doing their bit for the war effort. But with the bombs falling outside, can star of the show, Sammy Shaw, hang on to his leading lady and broadcast live to America for the very first time? Chock-full of quick-fire gags, side-splitting routines and classic songs from one of our ‘best of British’ musical talents, Noel Gay, the composer of Me and My Girl, Radio Times features 40’s favourites such as Run Rabbit Run, Hey Little Hen, My Thanks To You and There’s Something About a Soldier.
The Producers said: “Sadly, due to artist non-availability, we are unable to present the production on the dates originally planned. We hope to present the production at a later date.”
People with tickets for Radio Times should contact their point of purchase for a full refund.
The next production at the venue, following the extension to Titanic’s record-breaking 10-week season, will now be Ragtime. Ragtime will start previews on Saturday 8 October. Press night is Monday 17 October. It will run to Saturday 26 November. The European premiere of Death Takes a Holiday will then run Saturday 3 December – Saturday 21 January.
