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.
