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.
From 21 Jul 2021
Her Majesty's Theatre

Far beneath the majesty and splendour of the Paris Opera House, hides the Phantom in a shadowy existence.
Shamed by his physical appearance and feared by all, the love he holds for his beautiful protégée Christine Daaé is so strong that even her heart cannot resist.
Andrew Lloyd Webber's mesmerising score along with jaw-dropping scenery and breathtaking special effects, magically combine to bring this tragic love story to life each night.

The musical first opened at Her Majesty's Theatre on Thursday 9 October 1986 with Michael Crawford and Sarah Brightman in the leading roles.
Since then The Phantom of the Opera has gone on to become one of the highest-grossing musicals of all time, winning 70 major theatre awards and been seen by over 140 million people worldwide.
The show closed in March 2020 due to the coronavirus outbreak.
It is currently scheduled to recommence in June 2021, assuming that government audience restrictions are lifted.
