Cameron Mackintosh’s West End transfer of Half A Sixpence will close in September.
Following two extensions, West End musical Half a Sixpence will play its final performance on 2 September 2017.
Lauded as a dazzling reinvention by Julian Fellowes, George Stiles and Anthony Drew, the musical revival first ran at Chichester Festival before transferring to the Noël Coward Theatre in October 2016.
Half a Sixpence will be Chichester Festival longest running West End transfer since Singin’ in the Rain and joins the growing list of transfers which include Sweeney Todd, Guys and Dolls, and Gypsy.
Producer Cameron Mackintosh says: “It is most gratifying that this long neglected David Heneker and Beverley Cross musical, brilliantly re-written by Julian Fellowes, George Stiles and Anthony Drewe, now has a new lease of life with interest for several other productions in discussion.”
The production stars Charlie Stemp as Arthur Kipps and Devon-Elise Johnson as Ann – alongside Ian Bartholomew, Emma Williams and Vivien Parry.
Half a Sixpence runs until 2 September 2017 at the Noël Coward Theatre.
