Lambco Productions have announced a third, and final extension for their 6-player version of Pippin at The Garden Theatre.
The show, which has garnered 4 Off West End Award nominations, has already had two extensions to its run thanks to huge public demand and now adds further dates to take its closing up to Saturday 17 October.
The show's award nominations are for: Best Musical Production (Steven Dexter), Best Ensemble, Choreography (Nick Winston) and Musical Director (MIchael Bradley).
Producer Peter Bull said ...
"Lyn Gardner asked in her review of 'Pippin' 'what kind of mad optimist and dreamer opens a theatre venue during a pandemic?'.
Well, we did and the success of The Garden Theatre has exceeded all our expectations.
We have now installed outdoor heating and a new sound system and created 3 dressing rooms within the venue as we prepare to announce a slew of productions taking us into 2021."
Eagle owner Mark Oakley said ...
"Wow! 4 Offie nominations and the OneOFF award - I am absolutely chuffed for our theatre production company and all involved who have created something totally unique and a lifeline to my business.
If The Garden Theatre had not happened The Eagle would not have survived.
But as we celebrated this incredible new attraction for all to enjoy, we received the bitter 10pm curfew blow.
However, the show will go on..."
The Garden Theatre is also kicking-off its new Eagle Lates series with the international hit musical revue Naked Boys Singing! which runs until 11 October.
