Peter Schaufuss’ "Midnight Express" at the London Coliseum
Peter Schaufuss’ "Midnight Express", which is to open at the London Coliseum on April 9, will now not feature Sergei Polunin.
A statement released today says, "Due to unforeseen circumstances, Sergei Polunin will no longer be performing in Midnight Express at the London Coliseum April 9-14. Johan Christensen from the Peter Schaufuss Ballet, who was in rehearsals with Polunin, will dance the title role of Billy Hayes in his place. The real Billy Hayes has arrived in the UK today to consult on the production."
This story takes on Hayes' six years in a Turkish Prison after being caught smuggling hashish across the border at just 23 years old.
The production will feature Igor Zelensky and Wayne Eagling as previously announced.
