West End production of COME FROM AWAY won’t be beaten by Coronavirus

We are starting to see West End shows announce they will not reopen in London after the Coronavirus pandemic is over with productions like Waitress saying they are unlikely to reopen before the scheduled end of run in July.

The production of Evita, due to play this summer at the Barbican has also just announced it will not go ahead.

This is totally understandable because right now, no one knows when we are going to be let out of our houses again, let alone when theatres will be able to reopen.

There is talk of this becoming the way of life for months and months and even the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, which takes place throughout the month of August, has just announced it will not go ahead this year.

So whilst the future is very uncertain, there are a few beacons of hope around, with shows like Come From Away, Book of Mormon and Lion King all announcing they are extending their ticket booking periods, showing they will not let their shows close due to current conditions and will come through the other side.

Come From Away is now booking until 13 February 2021, Book of Mormon until 19 September 2020 and The Lion King until 14 February 2021.

As the poster for Come From Away says, “This is the show we all need right now” and that is sure to be the case more than ever when this is all over.
