In these uncertain times and awaiting news from the Government on the new tiering system and specifically which tier London will fall into, the good news for SIX fans is that even if there is another delay, there will be 11 additional weeks to catch Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss’s smash hit at London’s Lyric Theatre before it returns to its original home at the Arts Theatre.
If the musical opens on Saturday 5 December as currently scheduled, SIX will become the first musical to resume performances in the West End since theatres were closed down in March due to the coronavirus pandemic.
It is also hoped that the UK Touring cast will resume their delayed performances at the Lowry in Salford from Friday December 4, 2020 for the Christmas season if Salford avoids being designated a Tier 3 borough of Greater Manchester.
SIX will perform 9 shows a week at the Lyric Theatre in London where capacity has been reduced to 50% to comply with the latest COVID-19 Secure guidelines for social distancing plus robust risk mitigation. In addition to hand sanitation, face coverings and track and trace, other measures will include contactless tickets, temperature testing and the deep clean and sanitation of the theatre.
