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.
19 to 29 May 2021

Film Noir meets The Great American Songbook in this 40s inspired, streamlined re-telling of Hamlet.
Set in a would-be glamourous period nightclub and framed by performances of classic jazz numbers, The Bridge's production plays with the boundaries between art and life - as Hamlet, Claudius, Ophelia, Gertrude, Polonius and the rest struggle to convince the world of their own versions of reality.
Lust, betrayal and madness seen through the prism of Noir motifs:
the city and the night, the femme fatale, the bars of the cage.
