Lodon - It's curtains for Andrew Lloyd Webber's latest musical in London's West End.
Producers say Stephen Ward, a tale of sex and scandal based on a real Cold War episode, will close on 29 March after a run of less than four months.
The play opened in December to mixed reviews. It stars Alexander Hanson as a well-connected osteopath caught up in a scandal involving a young model, a British Cabinet minister and a Soviet attache.
It was the composer's first new show since Phantom of the Opera sequel Love Never Dies in 2010, and featured book and lyrics by Christopher Hampton and Don Black.
Producer Robert Fox said Monday he is saddened the show is closing, "but firmly believe this piece will be seen by many audiences in the future."
