Theatre closures due to coronavirus outbreak
From Saturday 15 August 2020, indoor performances at London theatres are allowed (with social distancing).
Outdoor performances (where possible) can also go ahead.
However, most theatres remain closed as they either do not have outside spaces or regard the need for social distancing as uneconomic.
The show below is due to open after the reopening date given above so it is possible it will go ahead, but you are advised to check the booking link to confirm.
Playing until 10 Oct 2020
