Following an incident on Wednesday night, Piccadilly Theatre has been closed over the weekend. The Theatre has stated that it intends to reopen today and resume performances of Death Of A Salesman, but ask that ticketholders check their website after 4pm for full confirmation.

They released the below statement:

“Westminster City Council, having conducted an investigation into the incident that occurred on Wednesday night at the Piccadilly theatre, confirmed today that the incident was caused by a localised water leak.  It has deemed the venue safe for use and granted permission to reopen the theatre to the public, provided the affected area is covered and off-limits until repairs are completed.

“It’s our intention to resume performances from Mon 11 November.

“All our venues are inspected annually, in compliance with safety regulations and the Piccadilly Theatre last underwent a stringent annual safety check in February 2019. The Piccadilly Theatre is also currently undergoing a multi-million pound modernisation and improvement programme.

“We are sorry that the incident on Wednesday night has caused concern and disappointment to theatre-goers. We want to thank our audiences, cast, staff, the emergency services, the theatre community and the authorities for their support following the incident.”
