Simon Cowell’s West End Musical “I Can’t Sing” will Close May 10

I Can’t Sing, the West End musical based on Simon Cowell’s X Factor, will close on May 10, less than 2 months after it opened, reports the Mirror.

Rebecca Quigley, CEO of Stage Entertainment UK, said in a statement released Friday night:

I Can’t Sing! has had audiences on their feet night after night, four and five star reviews from the critics and an amazing company and creative team, but it seems that isn’t always enough.

To open any big musical, and particularly a brand new British musical comedy at the London Palladium, is no mean feat and hundreds of dedicated people have played a part in bringing this unique and wonderful show to the stage.

I thank every one of those people and the audiences who have come to see the production.

Nigel Hall, Syco Entertainment, added:

From the moment Harry Hill and Steve Brown told us their idea for I Can’t Sing we knew this was going to be a fun project.

Alongside Stage Entertainment we’d like to thank the cast and crew who have worked so hard on this show.

To everyone at Really Useful Theatres and the ever supportive staff at the London Palladium, and everyone involved in I Can’t Sing! I’d like to say a huge thanks and the very best of luck with their next venture.

A source told the Mirror, “It is very disappointing for everyone involved, but not a reflection on the quality of the show.

Written by comic Harry Hill, the show features Nigel Harman in the role of Simon Cowell while Victoria Elliott plays a Geordie judge called Jordy (Obviously, Cheryl Cole).

The plot followed the budding romance of singers Chenice, played by Cynthia Erivo and Max played by Alan Morrissey.The show opened late last month
