The Commitments closing in West End but National Tour ahead

The CommitmentsThe Commitments is to end its run at the Palace Theatre in London after more than two years. The production had previews from 21st September 2013 and opened on October 8th 2013. The show has played more than 1,000 performances and will close on 1st November 2015.

Producer Phil McIntyre has confirmed the musical would embark on a national tour in 2017.

It started with a best-selling novel, and then an international hit movie that bred a chart-topping band. Now Roddy Doyle’s classic story about an assorted bunch of Irish kids who find salvation through soul music comes to the stage for the very first time.

More than two years to make, this energetic new musical take on The Commitments has been adapted from the novel by Booker Prize-winning author Doyle and is set to stimulate and inspire like it has never done before. Directed by Jamie Lloyd, whose recent success was the Trafalgar Studios production of Macbeth starring James McAvoy.

Book tickets now to experience the sparkling, energy-packed musical featuring a super-hot young cast!
