Postponed: Rent the Concert

Leicester’s Curve has made the “difficult” decision to postpone its concert production of Jonathan Larson's Rent after the government announced it was delaying the easing of restrictions on theatres.

A Curve spokesman said, “although we hope to be able to operate at full capacity by August, with such uncertainty we do not feel it is in the best interests for the theatre to take the risk of committing finances and resources predicated on a date that may change.

“We realise this news will disappoint our audiences, but rest assured we will do everything we can to bring this incredible musical to Curve in the future.

“We promise your visit to Curve will be as safe as possible and we have invested in a number of measures across the building to ensure everyone visiting and working in our theatre is safe.”

Curve has confirmed that performances of Peter James’s Looking Good Dead from Thursday 1 until Saturday 3 July and Anton and Giovanni: Him and Me on Sunday 4 July will go ahead with social distancing measures in place. Mischief Theatre’s Magic Goes Wrong will now run from Tuesday 20 until Saturday 24 July.
