Having announced yesterday the opening of new play All New People starring Zach Braff at the Duke of Yorks Theatre from 22nd February, the producers for Beatles biopic Backbeat have announced that the last show in it's West End run will take place on 18th February.

Backbeat previewed from 24th September and has been enjoying good success in the West End after transferring from it's world premiere at Glasgow Citizens Theatre.  Next up for the production is a move over the pond to Toronto, Canada during the summer of 2012.

In a press statement the show's producer Karl Sydow said: "I am enormously proud to have brought Backbeat to London and look forward to working with David Mirvish to take this great production to Canada next year."

Andrew Knott, Daniel Healy, William Payne and Oliver Bennett portray the four lads from Liverpool in their early days in Hamburg prior to finding worldwide fame alongside Nick Blood as the Beatles’ original bassist Stuart Sutcliffe and Ruta Gedmintas who plays photographer Astrid Kirchherr.
