With less than a few weeks to go, industry insiders are claiming the £55 premium price advance ticket sales for the Bill Kenwright season at the troubled Peterborough Broadway Theatre are "not going that well," and that some shows could well be pulled or matinee performances reduced.
Many thousands of Peterborough residents and social clubs lost huge amounts of money when the previous short term operator pulled out, refused to refund ticket money, also failed to pay suppliers and performers including comedian Jimmy Carr.
Many of the worthless tickets were purchased for social clubs, community centres and Council day centres using public funding (community leaders funding in particular was hit), theatre owner Rinaldo Fasulo has repeatedly refused to accept any liability, claiming the departed operator alone was responsible.
Despite the loss of public money, arts trust Vivacity, recently told to "pull its socks up" by Peterborough City Council is selling Kenwright tickets at its information booth and theatre box offices.
The PBROTRIB says only way to protect your cash is to purchase over £100 worth of tickets on a personal credit card account, (not a debit card) the credit card company is then legally in the frame, if the theatre/production company does not deliver.
