Mischief Theatre’s latest show has barely been officially open at the Criterion Theatre for a week, but has already announced that it will be extending its run at the Criterion Theatre until 2017.
The show which sees a bunch of crooks attempt to steal a diamond, is now booking at the Criterion Theatre until the the 23rd April 2017.
It officially opened at the theatre on the 21st April and has received a number of excellent reviews. Love London Love Culture loved the show saying: “Not only do they make comedy that looks easy to replicate, but it is also the way in which they create characters that people can identify with and like with ease.”
Since opening, The Comedy About a Bank Robbery has reportedly taken in over £1 million at the box office.
With this new extension being announced, it will mean that soon Mischief Theatre will have three shows running in the West End at the same time. With The Play That Goes Wrong still going strong at the Duchess Theatre, Peter Pan Goes Wrong will return to the Apollo Theatre from the 20th October until the 29th January 2017 and now The Comedy About a Bank Robbery.
The new production (which unlike the other shows in the Mischief Theatre repertoire didn’t open for a smaller run before the West End), was written by Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer and Henry Shields who also star in the production alongside Jeremy Lloyd , Charlie Russell, Greg Tannahill , Nancy Wallinger and Chris Leask.
The Comedy About a Bank Robbery is directed by Mark Bell and also features design by David Farley, costume by Roberto Surace, lighting by David Howe, additional lighting by Matt Leventhall and sound by Jon Fiber.
The Comedy About a Bank Robbery is now booking at the Criterion Theatre until the 23rd April 2017. To book tickets visit: Ticketmaster.co.uk, Discount Theatre.com, Last Minute.com, Theatre Tickets Direct.co.uk, Love Theatre.com, Theatre People.com and UK Tickets.co.uk.
