Money To Burn, closes after devastating reviews in the national papers.

The new musical comedy thriller Money To Burn, by Daniel Abineri, closed on Sat 11 Oct 03 at The Venue.

The production had been previewing from Monday 29th September 03 and its Press Night was on Thursday 9th October.

MTB Productions Ltd stated the closure of the production was "due to the devastating reviews in the national papers and the immediate impact that these reviews had on our future box office. A decision was made to close the show following the 6.30pm performance on Saturday 11th October and the cast and crew were told at a company meeting immediately after the end of the matinee performance. We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who had helped to make this production happen".

What the critics said: FIONA MOUNTFORD for THE EVENING STANDARD says, "Terrible musical." MICHAEL BILLINGTON for THE GUARDIAN says, "Woefully misbegotten enterprise."

The cast included Peter Blake, Tony Kemp, Sarah-Louise Young, Perry Benson, Gabrielle Noble, Camilla, Rachel Lynes, Graham Martin.

The show was directed by Daniel Abineri, designed by David Shields, lighting by Nick Richings and choreography by Michele Thorne.

And now his incredibly wealthy wife, Tiggy, has had enough and refused to give him another penny. What's a good, or even a bad man to do! There is only one way out... he must enlist some help... and his wife... must die!

Looking for the best seats...
