Kenny Wax, Producer of Six the Musical urges government to provide further guidance for theatres

Published 2 November 2020

The UK Government’s decision for a second lockdown will mean theatre closures across the UK from 5 November until 2 December.

Kenny Wax, Producer of Six the Musical said: “We tested the entire SIX Company on Saturday ahead of rehearsals which were due to start this morning at 10am. All the tests were negative.

“At 11.30 am on Sunday morning we sent an email to the cast, musicians, creatives and technicians (including the press, marketing, ticketing and admin teams) to say that due to the announcement last night we would not be able to start rehearsal today. We followed that up with a Zoom call at 6.45pm last night so that they had an opportunity to hear it first hand from the Producers and answer any questions. There were company members who had booked and paid for accommodation in London in readiness for the restart. Ultimately, we felt there was no value in rehearsing for 3 days and then suspending for an indefinite number of weeks.

“The load into the theatre of the lighting and sound equipment was also planned to start today. We are continuing with that process. The set will arrive on Wednesday. We are hoping to receive confirmation from DCMS that in line with Stages 1 and 2 of the performing arts roadmap that we can continue the fit up through to its completion and restart rehearsals a fortnight before the lifting of the lockdown. The timing of that announcement is essential as would be a further extension to the lockdown which we also acknowledge is a possibility. When restrictions are lifted, we will be ready to go, providing employment, entertaining our loyal fans, giving hope for a brighter 2021, and lighting up Shaftesbury Avenue once again after its prolonged closure.”

Six the Musical is scheduled to reopen at the Lyric Theatre from 5 December, provided there are no further changes to the current lockdown dates. If you’d like to book tickets to see this epic show with your loved ones, please click the button below and rest assured that if further cancellations are made, you will have the option to rebook or claim a refund.

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.
