"UP FOR GRABS" cancels first three preview performances

The first three preview performances of Up For Grabs , starring Madonna has been cancelled.

The performances on 9th, 10th & 11th May have been cancelled because of technical problems. It is reported that "The production has developed into a complex synchronicity between moving set, sound, music and projection and realising it in an older style theatre like the Wyndhams has increased necessary technical time."

The cancelled shows are to be be replaced by matinee performances on 18th May , 6th July and 13th July. (Ticket holders will be offered either tickets for one of the extra shows or a refund. A special hotline has been set up to deal with the changes on 020 7369 1796.)

The play at the Wyndham's Theatre, will now start previews from 13th May, with an opening night on 23rd May 02 and taking bookings to 13th July 02. (Note this show is SOLD OUT).

Joining Madonna will be Michael Lerner, Megan Dodds, Sian Thomas, Debora Weston, Tom Irwin, Danny Pino and Sian Thomas

A comedy by Australian playwright David Williamson, it explores the extent to which an art dealer will go to get a sale, and the moral hurdles which she must overcome along the way. Simone(played by Madonna) is an art dealer who is trying to crack into a new, wealthier market. She is given the opportunity to sell a Brett Whitely painting, and has guaranteed the artist a minimum of 2 million Dollars for the sale. It is not worth that much, and her relationship and apartment are under threat if she fails to find a buyer. Simone conducts a private auction between three interested buyers, and has to pull strings along the way to get the bids rolling.

Up For Grabs , will be directed by Laurence Boswell.
