Exclusive: Ghosts gets its notice
Not a massive surprise following the rather scathing tone of its reviews, but I've been told the cast and crew of Ghosts have just had their three weeks notice. The Ibsen play, which was originally due to run until May at the Duchess Theatre, and which stars Iain Glen and Harry Treadaway amongst others, has been plagued by relentless negativity on theatre boards like Whatsonstage and a swathe of negative reviews. It hasn't managed to pull in the crowds - and with its dark tone, perhaps theatregoers are just looking for something a little more chirpy. I thought about going, but like many others, I think I would have preferred a night out at Legally Blonde!
