Theatre closures due to coronavirus outbreak
England is cautiously moving out of national lockdown due to the coronavirus epidemic, but London theatres remain closed to audiences.
The government has not announced firm dates for theatres to open in England, though a suggested date for indoor performances to restart has been given as 17 May 2021, with capacity restrictions.
Larger theatres may be back with full capacity audiences from 21 June.
London theatres are beginning to announce new show dates and we are updating our listings.
However, we advise checking theatre websites to confirm which shows will be playing in the future.

No one lies about rape.
You either consent or you don't, that's absolutely clear.
But what about when memories aren't as clear?
When Sean is accused of rape by Anna, his arrest throws his world into turmoil.
His mother Felicity, a lifelong feminist, knows women don't lie about rape just as surely as she knows her son is innocent.
As the story of that drunken night swings between Anna's credible account and Sean's own recollection, the line between verbal and non-verbal consent becomes increasingly blurred.
'Innocent until proved guilty' is ripped up as Sean is exposed in the press, publicly abused and barred from his university, his course and his future.
The interminable wait for prosecution finally drives Felicity from grief to a dark obsession.
Written by Carolyn Lloyd-Davies and directed by David Trevaskis, #Penetration is inspired by seven true stories between 2014 and 2019.
This controversial play explores sexual boundaries, the pervasive damage of social media and exposes the hidden snares of a 'hook up' culture.
