Theatre closures due to coronavirus outbreak

London theatres have been closed from 16 December 2020 as London is now in Tier 4 restrictions due to the coronavirus outbreak.

At present, the government has not announced a date when theatres and other entertainment venues can reopen.

We are updating our listings to reflect cancellations and postponements of shows, but we advise checking theatre websites to confirm which shows will be playing in the future.

Show details


With twelve years as an Edinburgh Festival must-see phenomenon, a critically acclaimed West End run and an Olivier Award to their name, The Showstoppers have blazed a trail in world class improvised comedy and delighted audiences across the globe.

Now, with well over 1000 performances under their belts, they're back in a new home at the Garrick Theatre for a limited run of singular, one-night-only musical extravaganzas.

The Showstoppers transform your suggestions - for setting, musical styles, show title and more - into an entirely different show every single night! Guaranteed to impress, they create shows packed with high drama, superb lyrics, dazzling dance routines and catchy melodies - it's just entirely made up on the spot!

One of the very last shows to be cancelled before lockdown, The Showstoppers responded with an impromptu livestream of their final performance on the Lyric stage back in March, which has now been viewed over 112,000 times.

Since then they have been keeping their audiences entertained with livestreams - some of the only new musicals to be created and broadcast during this time! - , online kids shows and bespoke songs written and recorded in 24 hours for celebrities including Elaine Paige, Ramin Karimloo and Derren Brown.
