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.

“By the pricking of my thumbs, Something wicked this way comes.”
Sh!t-faced Shakespeare® is back for the 5th year at Leicester Square Theatre and it's going to be a bloodbath, with their all-new production of Macbeth.
Upon hearing the weird sisters' prediction, Macbeth and his wily wife take matters into their own hands and burn down everything in their wake.
Fair is foul and foul is fair in this tale of prophecy gone slightly off the rails.
Perhaps an inebriated actor will help the process along?
Featuring Shakespeare's most lovable witches, ghostly best friends, hell-hounds, unhinged wives, enough dead kings to give Game of Thrones a run for its money, and lots of plaid, Scotland storms London in 2020.
Settle in for a pint (or two!) and raise a glass with us.
Sh!t-faced Shakespeare® is the classic combination of a Tetris-ed together Shakespeare script, a six pack of professional actors and a luge of booze!
What could possibly go right?
Warning: Sh!t-faced Shakespeare® is perfect for those wishing to add to their repertoire of colourful language and not for those who blush easily at the mere mention of the “F” word…
Shit-faced Shakespeare®: Macbeth is playing exclusively at Leicester Square Theatre in 2020.
