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.

A brand new cabaret about love, art, and a legacy, RashDash reclaim the story of Lizzie Siddal; a model, painter, poet and long suffering muse and partner to Dante Rossetti.
The most famous of the Pre-Raphaelite 'stunners', Lizzie played leading roles of Violet, Ophelia, Beatrice and Sabra, but off the stage endured torturous love affairs, chronic illness and unmarried shame before her untimely death.
This cabaret follows Lizzie, returned from death to an age where women are allowed to be artists to tell the true story of her life in art and love.
Invisible behind the women she played, immortalised not as she was but as her lover insisted she be, yet still agonisingly devoted to a deeply flawed man.
How can she honour both herself and her desire, is it possible? Is it worth it? Is it right?
Look At Me Don't Look At Me is a cabaret about an iconic woman from history, what happens when your politics evolves but your sexual desire doesn't and what gets forgiven and forgotten in the wake of Great Art.
