When will West End shows return to the stage?
Undoubtedly a sector to take the biggest hit throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, theatre ground to a halt in March 2020.
Given a glimmer of hope towards the end of 2020, West End shows relaunched with a smattering of performances for those lucky enough to swipe-up a ticket to see a socially distanced production.
Now emerging into the new year, hurrah, the end of the pandemic is in sight – if a little way off.
The vaccines give us some much-needed hope that our lives will be largely back to normal by Easter. By which time, 30 million of those most at risk should be vaccinated. Who knows what might happen next but, based on current assumptions, you should once again be able to see your favourite shows and must-see productions with confidence.
Thus, now is the time to play your part, plan and pre-book a ticket to see a show. Whether you’re looking for a musical that’ll sweep you off your feet or a comedy to watch with your bubble, there’s plenty for you to choose from in our roundup of upcoming shows in 2021.
