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 will not currently be playing and is scheduled to close by 15 August 2020 (when theatres can reopen for indoor performances).
Original performance dates are given below and reflect any changes we know about.
Closed 8 Feb 2020

When the King of England met the Queen of Hollywood.
It's 1936. Edward's about to abdicate. Marlene Dietrich wants to stop him.
She shows up at Fort Belvedere and they do an all nighter, during which she sings, dances, races a horse and plays the musical saw, all in an effort to seduce him.
With a deft charm and a wicked wit, Ron Elisha, author of the hit play 'The Soul of Wittgenstein' ('scintillating, subtle and intense' London Theatre 1), pits love against duty in the ultimate meeting of the minds.
Brought to the stage by a brilliant young director, Tama Matheson, this is an unmissable evening of sheer entertainment.
