Which West End shows are planning their comebacks and when?
Unlike Broadway, which has taken tickets off sale since the Coronavirus pandemic began because of the uncertainty of when theatre will be able to return, London’s West End has taken a much more hopeful approach, keeping tickets on sale for when they think shows may be able to reopen and then pushing back when necessary.
Here is a look at which West End shows are planning their comebacks and when…
