Production to end May 12 after 55 perfs

LONDON — The West End world premiere stage production of “The King’s Speech” is to shutter early on May 12 after 55 perfs.

Produced by Playful Prods. and Michael Alden, Robert G. Bartner and Norman Tulchin, the critically lauded production of the play that inspired the Oscar-winning movie opened at Wyndham’s on March 27 following a successful six-week tour.

The producers said, “Two years ago, originating producer Michael Alden was ready to put the play on and the film came along and blocked its path. At the start of this year, we believed that enough time had passed between the film and our opening. This clearly was not the case. We are extremely proud of what we have accomplished.”
