London's Apollo Theatre is set to reopen in March (14) to house hit horror play Let The Right One In three months after the venue's ceiling collapsed.

The West End theatre was forced to close in December (13) after plaster from the venue's ornate ceiling caved in and injured nearly 80 members of the audience during a performance of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time.

The venue's owners had hoped to reopen the Apollo as early as January (14), but now aim to stage the first play since the collapse on 26 March (14) with Let The Right One In, the hit play adapted from the Swedish horror film and novel of the same name.

The horror adaptation opened at the British capital's Royal Court Theatre at the end of 2013 ahead of its planned West End transfer.
