The world premiere of Stephen Ward, the latest musical from legendary composer Andrew Lloyd Webber, has set a closing date of March 29 in London’s West End.

The production stars Alexander Hanson as Ward, with Charlotte Spencer as Christine Keeler, Charlotte Blackledge as Mandy Rice-Davies, Anthony Calf as Lord Astor, Daniel Flynn as John Profumo, Joanna Riding as Valerie Hobson, Ian Conningham as Ivanov, Chris Howell as Murray, Ricardo Coke Thomas as Lucky Gordon and Wayne Robinson as Johnny Edgecomp.
