Andrew Lloyd Webber’s show shuts earlymain
It was always a tacky thing to make a musical out of the human miseries of the Profumo scandal, but the fallen Lord of the West End complains that he hasn’t had a hit in 20 years so he wasn’t going to be put off by such niceties. Stephen Ward opened before Christmas amid great media razzamatazz.
It has now been announced that the show will close in March, after a four-month run. You may wish to catch the last performances at discounted prices. Or not.
