West End’s ‘Spring’ to shutter

Producers cite poor ticket sales for closure

The West End production of “Spring Awakening” will shutter at the end of the month, with producers citing insufficient ticket sales despite the production’s strong reviews.

Duncan Sheik and Steven Sater’s Tony-winning tuner began its London engagement in January at the Lyric Hammersmith, where the show was well-received enough to prompt a West End transfer that began in March.

Tuner was originally on sale through October at the Novello Theater, but now closes May 30.
