Theatres and coronavirus

From Monday 19 July, theatres in London are allowed to operate without capacity limits.

And all legal restrictions imposed by the government will be removed.

However, most theatres will still be following procedures such as electronic ticketing etc and may require masks to be worn.

Note that some performances have been cancelled where cast or staff have tested positive and need to isolate.

We advise checking theatre websites for the latest information and what you can expect when visiting.

Show details


It's Bon Voyage on the S.S America but it's not all smooth sailing as they head to sea; etiquette is cast-off through the portholes as two unlikely pairs set off on the course to find true love.

Their journey proves that sometimes destiny needs a little help from a crew of singing and dancing sailors, a comical disguise, farcical blackmail, and some timeless good fun!

Making her West End debut is renowned actress Megan Mullally (Will & Grace) as Reno Sweeney who will be joined by star of stage and screen Robert Lindsay (My Family), as Moonface Martin.

Kathleen Marshall's previous Tony-Award winning staging of Anything Goes hit the high seas on Broadway, and this stunning production features a joyful score of theatre's most memorable song, including 'I Get A Kick Out of You' and 'You're the Top' is set to be the musical of 2021.
