The UK premiere of musical Amour is to close early, it has been announced.

The show, which opened at the Charing Cross Theatre in early May, is directed by Hannah Chissick and stars Gary Tushaw, Anna O'Byrne, Alasdair Harvey, Elissa Churchill, Claire Machin, Keith Ramsay, Jack Reitman, Steven Serlin, Alistair So and Laura Barnard.

Michel Legrand's musical follows a civil servant, Dusoleil, who lives in 1950s Paris and writes letters to his mother while attempting to woo Isabella, who is locked away by her husband. Dusoleil then gains the ability to walk through walls.

The show will now close on 8 June, after originally being scheduled to run until 20 July. Choreography for the show is from Matt Cole, production design is from Adrian Gee, lighting design is by Rob Halliday, sound design is from Andrew Johnson and musical direction is from Jordan Li-Smith.

Producer Danielle Tarento said: "I want to thank and applaud the brilliant company and creative team who created a beautiful production that received critical acclaim, nightly standing ovations and received 8 Off-West End Award nominations.

"I am so incredibly proud of this gorgeous show and I hope London will give it the rousing send-off it deserves in its final two weeks."

The show received a four star review from WhatsOnStage with reviewer James FitzGerald saying it was 'an absolute baked camembert of a show'.
