Enron Adding 14 Weeks To West End Run
Enron, the world premiere London production not the energy company, is extending its run at the Noel Coward Theatre on London’s West End. The musical was supposed to close May 8. It will now close 14 weeks later on August 14.
The show is still scheduled to begin previews on Broadway at the Broadhurst Theatre beginning April 8; the show premieres April 27.
Enron debuted in the summer of 2009 at the Minerva Theatre Chichester and then moved to the Royal Court Theatre in November. It finally reached the West End in January of 2010.
For the 14-week extension, produces will replace the opening night cast. Currently, Samuel West is playing Enron CEO Jeffery Skilling.
Enron uses music, dance, and video to tell the story of one of the biggest scandals in the history of American business. It was written by English playwright Lucy Prebble (The Sugar Syndrome).
