LONDON, Sept. 12 (UPI) -- A London stage version of the musical based on the 1985 film romance "Desperately Seeking Susan" is getting a later start than planned.

The Hollywood movie about love and mistaken identity in 1980s New York and New Jersey starred Madonna, Aidan Quinn and Rosanna Arquette.

The new show based on the film features classic tunes by rocker Blondie, a.k.a. Deborah Harry, and is to begin West End previews Oct. 16, Playbill.com reported Wednesday.

"Due to the technical requirements of the show, the producers have canceled the first two previews on Oct. 12 and 13, but added a new performance on Oct. 16, to allow additional time for technical rehearsals on stage," the show's producers said in a statement.

Performances will take place at Novello Theatre, the recent home of "The Drowsy Chaperone."
