Can there be anything quite as exciting as going to a live theatre production. It doesn’t matter if you love musicals,  thrillers or comedy there is something for everyone and live theatre caters for all.  We might begin our foray into the world of greasepaint and costume with pantomime but there is a whole world of entertainment out there and watching it live ( Or performing!) is a unique experience.

But we are in the dreadful world of a pandemic and  these are unprecedented times both for society and the theatre industry. In March theatres across the nation went dark and since then lights have been flickering on, then off, and who knows when or how they will burst into full life again or if they will remain extinguished,a casualty of the times. 

Even with the government’s support package, many  theatres and their huge array of staff will struggle to make ends meet over the coming months ,most theatres, especially smaller venues, do not have the reserves to remain closed for long and It is predicted that many smaller venues will be forced to shut their doors for good. The best-case scenario is that London Theatreland and UK theatres will recover eventually but the worst-case scenario is that we may never see a full recovery .

However there is a little something we can do to help and enjoy the  ‘ live’ shows ,indeed the  show MUST go on and theatres have risen to the challenge with many shows being shown with very limited audiences if at all possible but filmed and tickets available to buy and livestream into your homes! 

There are so many benefits to this, those of us that live a very long way from London can now watch a huge array of shows with  a one showing  ticket costing a fraction of a live performance , we can watch in our Pjs with crisps and popcorn or get dressed up on a date night and share champagne and canapes but all without having to travel, or arrange babysitters! All in the comfort of your own home for now , we can share the excitement and magic until it is possible to return to the theatres.
