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.

Synopsis


Meet Jenna, a waitress and expert pie-maker who dreams of some happiness in her life.


When a hot new doctor arrives in town, life gets complicated.


With the support of her workmates Becky and Dawn, Jenna overcomes the challenges she faces and finds that laughter, love and friendship can provide the perfect recipe for happiness.


Brought to life by a ground-breaking, female-led creative team, this 'warm, witty, wise and hilarious' (EXPRESS) hit features 'one of the best scores in years' (THE STAGE) by the Grammy award-winning Sara Bareilles (Love Song, Brave) a book by acclaimed screenwriter Jessie Nelson (I Am Sam) and direction by Tony® Award-winner Diane Paulus (Pippin, Finding Neverland).


Receiving standing ovations night after night in London's West End and on Broadway, WAITRESS is 'the real deal' (INDEPENDENT) musical comedy 'made from the finest ingredients' (TIME OUT).
