Bad news for those of you looking forward to seeing this at Milton Keynes Theatre. The theatre has issued this statement from the production company:
The Radio Theatre Company deeply regret to announce the immediate cancellation of The Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy Radio Show 2013 Tour. Tonight’s performance at The Hawth, Crawley and tomorrow’s at the Watford Colosseum will not take place, nor will any of the remaining scheduled shows in October and November.
Ticket holders will be contacted directly by Milton Keynes Theatre and tickets will be refunded in full.
Despite its huge popularity with audiences, Hitchhiker’s Live has been subject to the same extreme economic pressures as many shows touring the UK this autumn. Ticket sales across the board have been lower than average and we have not escaped this trend. A difficult financial environment for such a large and technical show mean that covering operating costs has become impossible. As a result we have been forced to the extremely hard and painful decision to stop the tour.
We sincerely apologise and share the extreme disappointment and frustration which will be felt by fans who were looking forward to seeing the show and it is our hope that we can bring the show back in the future.
