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.

Rediscover the music of Cole Porter with Olivier Award-winning, cult cabaret band The Tiger Lillies.
The Grammy nominees uncover the dark, despair and delirium that lies beneath the surface of Porter's more romantic and mysterious works in Love For Sale.
Martyn Jacques and Adrian Stout return with a twisted, grimy cabaret that re-imagines some of Porter's best loved classics including 'My Heart Belongs to Daddy', 'Love For Sale' and 'Miss Otis Regrets' as well as hits from his most famous musicals.
Martyn Jacques describes the project as 'dragging Cole Porter down to our level'.
But he also acknowledges that his own writing has more in common with Porter's than might be expected.
'The classic song as far as this collaboration goes is Miss Otis Regrets.
As I've been recording the songs the engineer said to me that it is a Tiger Lillies song… it is very much in that dark gothic type world which is part of what we do.'
The world The Tiger Lillies creates on-stage is dark, peculiar and varied, with moments of deep sadness, cruel black humour and immense beauty.
The Tiger Lillies' music is a mixture of pre-war Berlin cabaret, anarchic opera and gypsy music, echoing the voices of Bertolt Brecht and Jacques Brel, never ceasing to shock, surprise and entertain.
