The London premiere Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike has been postponed.

The show, which was due to open at the Charing Cross Theatre on 21 March, will now open later this year, with dates to be announced.

Producer Steven M Levy said: "We have been closely monitoring the developing situation surrounding coroniovirus. The safety of our cast, staff and our patrons is paramount and so we have taken the very difficult decision to postpone the production to later in the year. Obviously events are fast moving and changing day by day but when the crisis is passed we will announce a new opening date. Patrons should consult their point of purchase for refunds."

Janie Dee, Rebecca Lacey, Michelle Asante, Vincent Franklin, Charlie Maher and Lukwesa Mwamba were to star in Christopher Durang's comedy. Walter Bobbie will direct the show, with set design by David Korins, costume design by Emily Rebholz, sound design and original music by Mark Bennett and casting by Gilly Poole.

Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike centres around Vanya and his sister Sonia, who live a quiet life in the Pennsylvania farmhouse where they grew up until sister Masha returns unannounced with her boyfriend Spike.

Patrons should consult their point of purchase for refunds.
