Lucas' London Play Shuts Early

Producers of West End play PRICK UP YOUR EARS have brought the curtain down three weeks early after MATT LUCAS quit to mourn the death of his ex-husband.
The Little Britain funnyman was devastated by the shock suicide of his former partner Kevin MCGee, who was found hanged at his apartment in Edinburgh, Scotland last month (Oct09).
Devastated Lucas pulled out of his lead role as he continued to grieve, and producers replaced him with actor Con O'Neill - but the show is to end three weeks early after a slump in ticket sales.
The producers said in a statement, "Despite very good feedback and notices for Con O'Neill's performance, the box office sales have not been sufficient to keep the show going."
The last show will be performed on 15 November (09).
