Poppy was performed twice at the Half Moon once in August running from the 25th of August to the 24th of September 1988 and the second performance was from the 28th of December to the 28th of January 1989.

Poppy opened at the Barbican Theatre in 1892 and transferred to the West End where it was voted Best Musical by the Society of the West End Theatres (S.W.E.T). Peter Nichols and Monty Norman rewrote and re-scored it into a rougher, tougher, shorter, sharper show for its new production at the Half Moon.
