Theatre-goers who suffered personal injury during an award-winning play will soon see the performance at another venue.
A ceiling collapsed at London’s Apollo Theatre during the award-winning The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time last month.
The production will continue its West End run at the Gielgud Theatre, just up the road on Shaftesbury Avenue, from June 24.
Tickets are available from Friday, January 17.

National Theatre executive director Nick Starr said: “It will be a real wrench to leave that beautiful theatre, but sadly the closure of the gallery to enable its restoration means that the show no longer works economically there.”
Nica Burns, chief executive of Nimax Theatres which owns the Apollo, said: “We are sorry to lose such a wonderful production and wish it well.”
Accident-hit London play moves venue
The Apollo has been shut since December 19 when around 10 square yards of plaster plunged on to the stalls underneath, leaving 80 people with personal injury.
Over 700 people were inside the venue when audience members began screaming as it seemed parts of the ceiling caved in 45 minutes into the play.
Some of the injured were transported to hospital aboard London buses as emergency services tackled with the incident.
The majority were discharged soon afterwards, having been primarily treated for cuts and bruises.
