Paul O'grady - Stars Lose Investments After Coronation Street Musical Flops

Paul O'grady, Kym Marsh and Julie Goodyear are among the British stars who have lost money following the collapse of a musical based on British soap opera Coronation Street.

The stage show was titled Street of Dreams and starred comedian O'Grady and former Coronation Street star Goodyear, but it was closed just two nights into its run in May, 2012.

One of the production companies behind the musical was placed into administration last November (12) and the firm, Reckless Entertainment, has since gone into liquidation.

Now it has emerged that a long list of creditors, including O'Grady and Goodyear, will not be paid back money they are owed.

O'Grady has lost around $124,000 (£80,000), according to Thestage.co.uk, while other stars who have reportedly lost money include current Coronation Street star Marsh and former castmembers Goodyear and Kevin Kennedy, who both had roles in the musical.
