We hear that the musical Bat Out of Hell which was meant to be playing at the Coliseum throughout this summer has been cancelled.
English National Opera is keen to stress that it won’t be out of pocket as these things get covered usually by insurance.
But it throws the schedule into chaos, and probably the budgets as well.
The company just cannot climb out of crisis.
We also hear that the musical Chess, which is due to start rehearsing at ENO next month, has yet to find a cast.
It’s getting tense out there.
