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.

This is nice, init? I like it.
Good little set-up to tell you the story of my name.
The story of my true name.
When a woman receives an unexpected letter from the British Passport Office, she is forced to confront an old mystery: why does her South African passport not carry her first name?
Armed with the soundtrack to your favourite 90s TV shows, she sets out on a journey that will take her back to the turmoil of Mobutu's Congo, growing up in post-Apartheid South Africa, moving to Ireland and finding love in a hostile England .
As her journey becomes inextricably linked with the tides of global history, how far will she go to unravel the truth?
By turns wickedly funny and strikingly lyrical, Benedict Lombe's Lava is an explosive debut that will turn the way you see the world on its axis.
