The producers of  Waitress announced today an extension until next summer, but then the smell of fresh baking pies will leave the Adelphi Theatre and head around the UK! The final performance at the Adelphi will take place on 4 July 2020 and Waitress will head off on a tour of the UK before returning to the West End.

You can grab tickets through the link below, and don’t forget that from 27 January until 7 March, the fantastic Sara Bareilles and Gavin Creel will join the London company to perform as Jenna and Dr Pomatter!

Sweet news today as it was announced that Sara Bareilles will reunite with Gavin Creel in the West End production of Waitress for a six-week run in January. 

The Royal Court today announced that Rebekah Murrell, Tanya Reynolds and Letty Thomas have been cast in the world premier of Scenes With Girls. 

Written by Miriam Battye and directed by Lucy Morrison, the play will be performed in the Royal Court Jerwood Theatre Upstairs from Wednesday 15 January 2020 to Saturday 22 February 2020, and does exactly what it says on the tin;

Tosh and Lou. 22 scenes.
Other friends have come, got boyfriends and gone.
So what? Tosh and Lou have each other. They’re not interested in becoming clichés. They’ll never be like other girls.

Shackelton And His Stowaway will be opening the Park90 2020 season at Park Theatre from 8 January to 1 February 2020. Following two sell-out runs at Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2018 and at London’s Cervantes Theatre, the special run will commemorate the 200th anniversary of the discovery of the Antarctic.

Based on real events, the thrilling two-hander offers an intimate portrayal of two men who braved the harsh elements and inhabitable environment of Antarctica – and found themselves fighting for their own survival.

Due to the current pandemic various venues and productions are making announcements for their individual shows. Please bear with us as we try to keep this page as up to date as possible. If you find a mistake, please let us know by emailing enquiries@soltukt.co.uk. If you click through to seat selection (where you'll see either best available or a seating plan), you will be seeing the most up-to-date prices. If this differs from what we've written on the calendar, please bear with us, as those prices will update soon.

We now sell our famous TKTS Booth discounts online here at Official London Theatre.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

In order for us to serve our audiences the best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 31 May. Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider. Our producers continue to plan for all eventualities dependent on the individual needs of their shows and we will provide further updates on specific shows as and when they become available.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.

For more than 40 years, TKTS was our on-the-day theatre ticket box office in Leicester Square. Currently closed due to the current situation, we are now selling our great last minute seats and prices online. Click here to learn more.

While theatres are currently closed, various venues and productions are making announcements for their individual shows, including cancellations and rescheduled performances. Please check with the individual shows for details.
