The first performance of I Can’t Sing, the X Factor musical, has been delayed until Wednesday.
Originally scheduled to begin on Thursday, the first two performances were cancelled, with the show due to open today. However, today’s performance has been cancelled, leaving the first preview to be the next scheduled performance this coming Wednesday.
The team has confirmed the delay is due to further technical problems with a key part of the set, which is not functioning properly.
Rebecca Quigley, Producer for Stage Entertainment, has said:
Our teams have been working extremely hard to correct a problem which has developed this week with a particularly intricate piece of technical equipment. Our show features a hugely ambitious set including a multi-truck system on track embedded in the stage to allow pieces to move constantly during the performance. This tracking system is not operating correctly and it’s imperative, for the safety of our actors and the quality of the production that we’re committed to delivering, that we take the time needed to resolve this issue.
I’d like to offer our sincere apologies to everyone who has bought a ticket for this week’s preview performances and can assure you that everyone at the Palladium is working night and day to guarantee that I Can’t Sing!, in all its hilarious, all-singing, all-dancing glory, will begin previews next week as scheduled.
For those with tickets for today’s performance, they should contact their point of purchase to arrange for alternative seats at another performance.
The schedule of previews , all at 7.30pm, are now as follows ahead of the launch and press night on 26th March:
Thursday 27th, Friday 28th February and Saturday 1st March – CANCELLED
Wednesday 5th, Thursday 6th, Friday 7th and Saturday 8th March
Wednesday 12th, Thursday 13th, Friday 14th and Saturday 15th March (plus matinee at 3pm)
Monday 17th, Tuesday 18th, Wednesday 19th, Thursday 20th (plus matinee at 3pm), Friday 21st and Saturday 22nd March (plus matinee at 3pm)
Monday 24th and Tuesday 25th March
