Cinderella in London

The great Andrew Lloyd Webber's new musical Cinderella in the West End is closing, although just under a year has passed since its premiere. A farewell performance will take place on 12 June, reports The Guardian.

According to the statement released by Lloyd Webber's Really Useful Group (RUG), the composer, thanking everyone involved in the project, said that "creating a new show in the midst of a COVID-19 pandemic was an unthinkable challenge" and that a new production of Cinderella will open on New York's Broadway in 2023.

Lead actress Carrie Hope Fletcher also spoke out on her Twitter account about the situation.

Also, Daisy Twells noted that she was also due to join rehearsals next month for her involvement in Cinderella was to make her West End debut.

The Equity union called the closure a cruel attack on the company's dignity and said staff should be compensated. Lloyd Webber previously said he was "incredibly proud" of the show.

The musical did not premiere until August 2021, having been repeatedly postponed due to coronavirus isolation protocols.

In late December, Webber, who has repeatedly accused the government of not supporting the theatre industry enough during the COVID-19 pandemic, said he was "absolutely devastated" by the disruption to theatres caused by the Omicron strain.

Andrew L. Webber is a composer from England and his first success came at the age of 19, when he and Timothy Miles Bindon Rice wrote the opera Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.
