The West End’s Apollo Theatre is set to reopen March 26, potentially playing host to John Tiffany’s adaptation of Let the Right One In, according to London’s Evening Standard. The venue was forced to close after part of the ceiling collapsed on audience members on December 19.
Investigations and compensation claims are still ongoing into the accident, where 76 people were injured, seven seriously. The venue’s co-owner Nica Burns told the Standard: “I am so sorry to all those people that they had to go through something like that. Sorrow is the word that sums it up for me. No one should be put through that and I am so sorry.”
The National Theatre’s The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time had been playing at the Apollo when the incident occurred. It is now set to resume its West End run at the Gielgud Theatre beginning June 24, before making its Broadway bow at the Barrymore Theatre this fall.
