This production transfers to London's West End following a run at the Manchester Opera House - previewed from 20 February 2020, opened on 11 March 2020, and closed 14 March 2020 - with the same same lead cast. The production was originally scheduled to run in Manchester up to 17 May 2020, but closed early due to the COVID-19 situation, with the planned transfer to London's West End delayed. It was then hoped that the production would be able to start public previews here at London's Adelphi Theatre from 14 May 2021, but this was also delayed due to the COVID-19 situation until 20 August 2021.
