Soho Theatre today officially announces its reopening season featuring live theatre, live comedy and live cabaret. From Monday 17 May, the reopening live programme will include rescheduled shows from its 2020 programme alongside new and existing shows, with yet more to be announced. Following a year of strengthening its Soho Theatre On Demand digital offering and partnerships as well as its creative engagement and new Walthamstow venue work, Soho Theatre is excited to reopen its Dean Street doors to live performance, in accordance with the government’s current ‘Roadmap out of lockdown’, starting with its Cabaret and Main Theatre venues. Soho Theatre Bar will also reopen from 10am, Monday 17 May.


David Luff, Soho Theatre’s Creative Director said:
“All of us at Soho Theatre are thrilled to welcome back audiences, artists and creatives to our venues and to reopen our much-missed bar in our home on Dean Street.

As London’s most exciting festival venue, we’ve curated a vibrant mix of the best new theatre, comedy and cabaret, including Sindhu Vee, Pecs, Tim Key, and Nina Conti along with Nouveau Riche’s highly acclaimed Queens of Sheba and the world premiere of Amanda Wilkin’s Verity Bargate Award-winning play Shedding A Skin.

Alongside all the live shows, our digital work continues to thrive with the announcement of Jessie Cave’s Sunrise on Soho Theatre On Demand and a unique transatlantic live-streamed revival of Lucinda Coxon’s devastatingly brilliant play Herding Cats.”
