Dans der Vampieren postponed (updated)

Dans der Vampieren, the the Belgian production of Tanz der Vampire scheduled for a December 2009 run in Antwerp and a February 2010 run in Ghent, has (for now) been postponed until September 2010.

Musical van Vlaanderen vzw, the producer of the musical, blames the delay on Studio100 and Stimuhl, two competing musical production companies, who appealed a yearly € 2.5 million goverment grant. Studio100 and Stimuhl say that this postponement cannot be blamed on their appeal, as they claim that Dans der Vampieren wasn’t covered in the grant.

The Belgian Council of State has yet to rule on the appeal, and Tanz Belgium remains in limbo until then. It has been confirmed that tickets already bought will be refunded, and that groupreservations will be cancelled.
