Theatres and the coronavirus outbreak

London theatres are permitted to open again to live audiences from Monday 17 May 2021.

Some smaller theatres have already made plans to reopen, though this does not apply yet to all venues.

Many of the big, popular shows in the West End have delayed reopening until later in the summer or Autumn.

We advise checking theatre websites for details about their particular reopening schedule and what you can expect when visiting.

Be More Chill

30 Jun to 5 Sep 2021

Shaftesbury Theatre

Just your atypical love story - a guy (he wants to fit in), a girl (she wants to be noticed), and the supercomputer inside the guy's head that tells him what to do (it wants to take over the world!).

Show details


With a score full of addictive earworms and a universal, sci-fi tinged story about the competing voices in all of our heads, this "fantastically funny" (The Guardian) musical "fizzes with feel-good energy" (The Stage) and features "an absolutely terrific young British cast" (The Telegraph).

It's just your atypical love story - a guy (he wants to fit in), a girl (she wants to be noticed), and the supercomputer inside the guy's head that tells him what to do (it wants to take over the world!).

We ask that patrons consider the individual needs of younger theatergoers before bringing them to the show.
