Yes, but if it finishes early it wont have done that.  They clearly had plans for longer, and IF it finishe in March (or even in January is one rumour ive heard) then it will be cut short

My guess is March as there are more venues to be added yet which is a fact.  I am sure I read that the cast were on a 12 month contracts so I am not sure how that constitutes an early closing?

cast contracts dont mean the tour wasnt planned for longer. canterbury was announced, then withdrawn, therefore its cut short

"The Marlowe Theatre has just been informed by the producers of the musical Ghost that they will no longer be touring this show beyond March of next year.
Unfortunately, this means that Ghost will now not be appearing at our theatre as planned between Tuesday 17 – Saturday 28 June.
We are very sorry for any disappointment that this may cause our patrons and we will be contacting everyone shortly who had booked tickets to arrange a refund.
We will also be announcing another production to replace Ghost in the next few weeks."

I don't see what the arguing is about, it has been cut short! It's there in black and white!

Cut short only means, in this case, one venue has been cut, which was over a year from now anyway! Due to the cost of producing the tour I have to think they'll try and find a more permanent home for it, or already have international touring plans for it. Probably the latter.

Well I saw it yesterday in Leeds and it was brilliant. Loved the illusions, especially in the subway. We saw it in Manchester prior to the west end and this tour, in my opinion is much slicker and more polished.
