Andrew Lloyd Webber's new musical Cinderella has been postponed until next March owing to the cornovirus crisis and theatre closures.

The show will get its world premiere at the West End's Gillian Lynne Theatre on Wednesday 7 April, with previews from Friday 19 March 2021.

Andrew Lloyd Webber said ...

"Whilst I continue to impress on the government that theatres can reopen safely based on The London Palladium model, it has become clear that we need to move the opening of Cinderella to next Spring.

My teams have been working throughout lockdown to prepare the show and are raring to go, but there are key elements, not least casting and the building of sets and costumes, that take months of forward planning and can only start as we get further down the road to normal.

So the show will absolutely go on, just a little later than I'd hoped."
