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.
20 May to 25 Sep 2021

Times are hard for dreamers but Amélie is someone to believe in.
Following a critically acclaimed and sell-out tour in 2019, a Grammy nomination and 3 Olivier Award nominations, Amélie The Musical arrives in the heart of the West End.
The much loved five - time Oscar®-nominated film is brought to life by a cast of astonishingly talented actor-musicians and set to a critically acclaimed re-orchestrated score.
Amélie, played by the delightful, Olivier Award nominated Audrey Brisson (The Elephantom, Pinocchio and Pericles (National Theatre), The Grinning Man (Bristol Old Vic), secretly improvises small, but extraordinary acts of kindness discovering the possibilities around every corner and bringing happiness to those she encounters.
When a chance at love comes her way, Amélie realises that to find her own contentment she'll have to risk everything and say what's in her heart.
Experience this beautiful story and be inspired by this imaginative dreamer who discovers her voice, uncovers the power of human connection and sees possibility around every corner.
