Apollo Theatre Set To Reopen
19 Feb 2014After closing at the end of Decenber following part opf the ceiling collapsing during a performance of The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time, The Apollo Theatre will reopen iots doors on 26th March, owner Nica Burns has told the London Evening Standard newspaper.
Burns said in an inrterview with the Standard's Nick Curtis that the theatre would open for business next month with the National Theatre of Scotland’s acclaimed stage production of Let The Right One In, however contracts are yet to be signed on the transfer. The show was previousely staged at the Royal Court Theatre last year and is an adaptation of a hit movie and novel about a lonely boy and a teenage vampire.
The cause of the partial ceiling collapse that closed the theatre whilst showcasing the multi-award-winning stage adaptation of The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time, is still to be determined and at the reopening, the upper gallery will be roofed in so to allow for further investigation and for the remainder of the renovation to continue.
The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time will resume its West End run next door to the Apollo at the Gielgud Theatre from 24th June telling the story of a teenage boy who has difficulty interpreting everyday life but when he stumbles across a neighbour’s pet dog impaled on a garden fork, he embarks on a mission to uncover the perpetrator of the crime, but in doing so discovers far more than he could ever have expected
