Shows starting at London theatres


On this page we list shows that are starting their runs at London theatres in the coming weeks.


Under normal circumstances, there would be 50 or more shows opening each week across London's West End, Fringe and Off West End theatres.


In the current situation with the coronavirus outbreak, London theatres are closed.


However, the shows listed below are (at least for the time being) scheduled to begin performances, though their opening dates might change, depending on advice from the UK government.


Note that you can load below shows for many weeks ahead - so you may end up with a long list some 6 months into the future.


If you're looking for the opening date for a specific show you want to see, try our show search on this page.
