'I Can't Sing!' will close on May 10 after just two months on the West End, despite the 'X Factor' musical receiving glowing reviews during its run at the London Palladium

The 'X Factor' musical 'I Can't Sing!' will close after just two months.

Despite only opening on the West End in March, Harry Hill's stage show - which is based on Simon Cowell's TV talent contest - faces its curtain call in May.

Rebecca Quigley, the chief executive of Stage Entertainment UK, told the BBC: "The West End can be an unpredictable place as the closure of a number of high profile productions recently has shown.

"'I Can't Sing!' has had audiences on their feet night after night, four and five star reviews from the critics and an amazing company and creative team, but it seems that isn't always enough."

The show garnered glowing reviews during its run at the London Palladium, but it will end its run on May 10.

Nigel Hall, from production company Syco Entertainment, added: "Alongside Stage Entertainment we'd like to thank the cast and crew who have worked so hard on this show.

"To everyone at Really Useful Theatres and the ever supportive staff at the London Palladium, and everyone involved in 'I Can't Sing!' I'd like to say a huge thanks and the very best of luck with their next venture."

Comedian and writer Harry Hill and composer Steve Brown poke merciless fun at the reality TV talent search in this brand new musical, featuring 19 newly penned songs (hopefully sung by people who aren't actually tone-deaf).
