The performing arts company responsible for ‘The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy Radio Show Live!’ has entered liquidation, cancelling the show midway through its 2013 tour.
The Radio Theatre Company Ltd had produced the smash hit UK tour in 2012 but had “been subject to extreme economic pressures” this year.
Myles Jacobson from Streets SPW Plc, was appointed liquidator to the company on 2 December 2013.
Featuring a different guest star playing the narrator role at each performance, an ensemble cast would bring the radio scripts to life on stage.
Jacobson said: “Hitchhiker’s Live has been subject to the same extreme economic pressures as many productions touring the UK this autumn. Ticket sales across the board have been lower than average and have not escaped this trend.”
“A difficult financial environment for such a large and technical show means that covering operating costs has become impossible. As a result the decision was taken in October to cancel the remaining dates of the tour.”
