The planned West End run of The Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre production of Evita has been cancelled due to the Barbican closing their venue until the end of June.
Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre made the following statement:
“In light of the ongoing situation relating to Covid-19, the Barbican will now be closed until the end June. We are therefore sad to confirm that the forthcoming production of Evita has been cancelled.
All ticket holders will be contacted with regards to refunds, however, as there are a large number of events affected by the venue’s closure, we appreciate your patience.
We are sorry to disappoint our audiences but Regent’s Park Theatre, the producers of the show, are working hard to find a way for the production to return to London soon.”
The musical was seen by over 75,000 people in Regent’s Park last year and became the theatre’s highest grossing production ever.
