Simon Cowell’s I Can't Sing musical axed

Monday April 28, 2014

Simon Cowell’s West End musical has been axed after less than two months.

The creation of TV personality Harry Hill, I Can't Sing was a satire of reality television programmes such as The X Factor.

Starring Nigel Harman as Simon Cowell, the unpredictable nature of the West End was blamed by Simon Cowell's company SyCo

In a statement Syco said: "I Can't Sing has had audiences on their feet night after night."

It went on to add: "To open any big musical, and particularly a brand new British musical comedy at the London Palladium, is no mean feat and hundreds of dedicated people have played a part in bringing this unique and wonderful show to the stage."

The show’s last performance will be on May 10.
