The theatre impresario Sir Cameron Mackintosh yesterday announced the postponement of his latest West End musical, Martin Guerre, writes John McKie.

Sir Cameron has decided that the pounds 3.5m show, scheduled to start previews on 1 June, will not now commence until 21 June, because of choreography difficulties. The world premiere will now be on 10 July instead of 18 June.

Sir Cameron was said to want a four-week workshop prior to the rehearsals to develop the choreography.

Around 6,000 people who had booked tickets for the show at London's Prince Edward Theatre between 1-20 June were yesterday sent alternative booking arrangements.
