There’s more magic to do… critically acclaimed ‘Pippin’ announces a final week’s extension at London’s exciting new outdoor theatre venue, The Garden Theatre.
‘Pippin’, which has received 4 Off West End Award nominations – Best Musical Production (Steven Dexter), Best Ensemble, Choreography (Nick Winston) and Musical Director (MIchael Bradley) – will now end its run on Saturday 17 October.]
Producer Peter Bull, Lambco Productions and The Garden Theatre at The Eagle in Vauxhall have also received the first OneOFF Award from the Off West End Awards, celebrating the creation of a new venue against the odds and launching with the first Off West End production since lockdown began in March 2020.
“Producer Peter Bull said: “Lyn Gardner asked in her review of ‘Pippin’ ‘what kind of mad optimist and dreamer opens a theatre venue during a pandemic?’. Well, we did and the success of The Garden Theatre has exceeded all our expectations. We have now installed outdoor heating and a new sound system and created 3 dressing rooms within the venue as we prepare to announce a slew of productions taking us into 2021.”
Eagle owner Mark Oakley said: “Wow! 4 Offie nominations and the OneOFF award – I am absolutely chuffed for our theatre production company and all involved who have created something totally unique and a lifeline to my business. If The Garden Theatre had not happened The Eagle would not have survived. But as we celebrated this incredible new attraction for all to enjoy, we received the bitter 10pm curfew blow. However, the show will go on…”
