Sorry Mark S, Elton John’s musical based on Anne Rice’s Vampire Chronicles is to close. Lestat will not be transferring to London, and after the critical drubbing it got this will go along with other great horror musical flops such as Dracula and Carrie. My mum didn’t like Sweeney Todd either and while The Phantom Of The Opera has been a tiny success, it is a two song snorefest.

Actually writing musicals about vampires is a daft idea. You will want a song with a key bit of biting going on: but it would be rude to sign with your mouth full.
