Theatres and the coronavirus outbreak
London theatres are permitted to open again to live audiences from Monday 17 May 2021.
Some smaller theatres have already made plans to reopen, though this does not apply yet to all venues.
Many of the big, popular shows in the West End have delayed reopening until later in the summer or Autumn.
We advise checking theatre websites for details about their particular reopening schedule and what you can expect when visiting.

Twelfth Night, often described as one of Shakespeare's greatest comedies and revolves around Sebastian and his twin sister, Viola - each of whom, when separated after a shipwreck - believes the other to be dead.
Cast ashore in a strange land of Illyria, Viola protects herself by adopting a male disguise - a ruse that leads to hilarious confusion when she enters the service of the lovesick Duke Orsino, acting as go-between in his hopeless suit to the Countess Olivia.
The play features some of Shakespeare's greatest comic creations including Sir Toby Belch and Feste.
Twelfth Night is a masterpiece of unrequited love, gender reversal and mistaken identity and this production is not to be missed.
