Let Us Be Clear

The London production of the “Phantom Of The Opera” by Andrew Lloyd Webber, which was said to close permanently after 34 years at the Her Majesty Theater on London’s West End, is not closing, the Really Useful Group, owned by ALW, and under the “Phantom’s” London production website, made it very clear today that the curtain of the U.K. “Phantom Of The Opera” is only closed due to COVID19, and for Her Majesty Theatre repairs.

Even though ALW and production partner, Cameron Mackintosh, cannot put an exact date on when “Phantom” will be back, they can assure you that it will be back when conditions are clear, and of course when repairs are done at Her Majesty Theatre.

One thing that seems definite is the West End is unlikely to resume theatre performances before November, right around the holiday season, as Cultural Secretary, Oliver Dowden, talked with BBC Radio 4’s “Today” programme saying they don’t know when exactly the West End will fully function again.
