The production, which had been booking until January 2014, will reportedly embark on a European tour before returning to the UK for a tour “beginning in autumn 2014”.
Producer Mark Goucher said today: “We are extremely proud of this production of A Chorus Line and would like to thank the cast and creative team for their exceptional work. It has been a huge privilege bringing this extraordinary show back to life on the London stage. We will be very sad to see it close.”
The show – which takes a behind-the-scenes look at 17 hopefuls auditioning for just eight places in a new Broadway musical – has a book by James Kirkwood and Nicholas Date, with music by Marvin Hamlisch and lyrics by Edward Kleban. Its famous score includes numbers such as “I Hope I Get It”, “Sing!” and, most memorably, “One (Singular Sensation)”.
The production is directed by Bob Avian, who also helmed the 2006 Tony-nominated Broadway production. Avian was Bennett’s long-term collaborator and his co-choreographer on the original 1975 production.
A Chorus Line is produced by Mark Goucher, Adam Kenwright, ACT Productions, Tim Lawson, Daniel Sparrow & Mike Walsh Productions by special arrangement with John Breglio and A Chorus Line Broadway.
No further shows have been announced for the 2,300-seat Palladium. X Factor musical I Can’t Sing! premieres at the venue in March next year.
