A new production of Pippin is revealing the scale of pent-up demand for theatre after weeks of show cancellations and postponements, and audiences having to stay home for their entertainment.
Lambco Productions' 6-player version of Pippin sold out its original schedule in just 72 hours and then added another 8 performances from Tuesday 22 to Sunday 27 September.
But that doesn't seem to have satiated the clamour for tickets, so the show has now added a further two weeks to its run at The Garden Theatre until 11 October.
London's new outdoor theatre venue launched with the sold-out, critically acclaimed musical 'Fanny and Stella' - which also extended its run twice due to considerable public demand.
Show listing information
'Pippin' features an infectiously unforgettable score, including 'Magic to Do' and 'Corner of the Sky', from four-time Grammy winner, three-time Oscar winner and musical theatre giant Stephen Schwartz, who has given his blessing to perform the show for the first time ever with an ensemble cast of six.
