Some of the world’s most famous West End musicals have been hit by the recession, it has been announced.
Budget constraints mean that production values for several shows have been pared down. Consequently the productions have been renamed accordingly:
- The Duke and I
- Joseph and his Beige Coat
- The Starlight Shuttle-Bus Service
- We Won’t Rock You
- My Average-Looking Lady
- Singin’ in the Drizzle
Ticket prices will change in line with these cutbacks, with the average admission charge trebling in price.
