Theatres in London are currently closed. In the West End, the closure will continue at least until 26 April.
The show below is due to open after that date so (on current information) it is likely to go ahead as scheduled.

The antics of the Wicksteed home are a darkly satirical merry-go-round in Alan Bennett's Habeas Corpus.
Family, friends and the quest for sexual pleasures of the body ("corpus") are the ruling passions in this farcical comedy of ill-manners.
Through an escapade of mistaken identities and carnal encounters, one motto holds fast: "He whose lust lasts, lasts longest."
Multi-award-winning playwright Alan Bennett is also a screenwriter, actor and author.
His other works for the stage include The History Boys, The Habit of Art, The Lady in the Van, Talking Heads, The Madness of George III, Kafka's Dick, Enjoy, The Old County and A Cuckoo in the Nest.
As a director, Patrick Marber's work includes Travesties (Menier Chocolate Factory, Apollo Theatre, Roundabout Theatre Company's American Airlines Theatre) & Leopoldstadt (Wyndham's Theatre).
