[MANILA, 12 SEPTEMBER 2019]: The producers of UK-based Shakespeare’s Rose Theatre have today announced that they will not be proceeding with their productions of Macbeth and A Midsummer Night’s Dream, due to be staged at the Theatre at Solaire from 17 to 22 September 2019.
James Cundall, CEO of producer Lunchbox Theatrical Productions and founder of Shakespeare’s Rose Theatre said “The publicity we have achieved from the media in Manila is unbelievable and we are immensely grateful for that, but sadly this has not translated into ticket sales, and despite an intense and costly marketing campaign, we have not been able to sell anywhere near the number needed to make the project financially viable.
“It is with great sadness that we have made the decision to cancel the season. The team at Shakespeare’s Rose Theatre was incredibly excited about bringing these superb productions to Manila audiences, so this is not a decision we have taken lightly.”
