Tony Award-winning actress Bernadette Peters‘ upcoming UK concerts have been cancelled.

Neil Eckersley Productions Ltd made the following statement: “We regret to announce that we are unable to present our planned UK tour with multi award-winning actress Bernadette Peters, as a result of Speckulation Entertainment Ltd’s unforeseen inability to fulfill our contractual obligation. We apologise for any inconvenience that this may cause. Online bookings will be refunded automatically.

Peters tweeted about the news saying: “I am so disappointed, sorry to my UK audience. So unfortunate I won’t get to see you”.

The Broadway legend was due to perform at the Lyceum Theatre in London, Usher Hall in Edinburgh, Symphony Hall in Birmingham, The Lowry in Salford and Milton Keynes Theatre.
