    Agatha Christie's The Mousetrap changes its producer

    The world's longest-running play in history, which first opened on London's West End in 1952 and has enjoyed a remarkably long run ever since, has just appointed its first new producer since 1994.

    Sir Stephen Waley-Cohen will be stepping down as producer for The Mousetrap after 24 years and is passing the baton to Adam Spiegel, who currently produces the Broadway transfer of Motown: The Musical. The show's general manager and production supervisor positions will continue to be filled by Andrew Mills and Denise Silvey respectively.

    Adam Spiegel had previously collaborated with Waley-Cohen on The Mousetrap's 60th-anniversary tour, which was a huge success. The show is currently in the 66th year of its initial run, originally opening at the Ambassadors Theatre in 1952 before moving to its next-door neighbor, the St Martin's Theatre, in 1973 where it has since remained.

    Waley-Cohen expressed his delight in the matter, handing over the show in "great confidence" with hopes of a "very long-term future." Spiegel further commented on The Mousetrap's longevity, stating that "any changes [to the show] will be evolutionary rather than revolutionary, and [I] look forward to playing my part in the record-breaking history of The Mousetrap." 

    This whodunnit has been on stage throughout the entire reign of Queen Elizabeth II with over 27,000 performances and 297 actors and actresses, and it holds a number of incredible records. Taking place in a rural guest house where the guests become snowed in, the story quickly transforms into a full-fledged murder mystery with a surprise twist ending that theatregoers are still asked to keep secret.

    Tickets to see The Mousetrap at the St Martins Theatre are booking until 5 January 2019. It still remains as one of the most popular shows in London and some of the West End's most sought-after tickets.
