London's West End Attendance Unaffected by Apollo Theater Ceiling Collapse

By Classicalite Newsdesk on Jan 10, 2014 04:19 AM EST

Some relief, yes, after the horrible ceiling collapse at the Apollo Theater in London's Shaftesbury Avenue.

According to The Stage, West End audience numbers have not generally been affected by the widely-reported catastrophe.

Even the theaters next door, the Gielgud and the Queen's which took in the injured on that awful night, have not seen a drop-off in audience figures.

There were inevitable worries that the Apollo incident would create a wider scare effect.

That hasn't happened.

The resident show at the Apollo, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, has already announced that it will be leaving the venue.

It will instead reopen at the Gielgud on July 8, previewing from June 24.

A reopening date for the Apollo, owned by Nimax Theaters, has yet to be determined.
