CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and there is currently no planned re-opening time though it will not be before 1st June 2020 and is most likely to be September (according to some West End producers). Some shows have been cancelled, or closed early, but many are being rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with the changes - assume that anything posted for April and May is actually postponed or cancelled. Pantomimes are possible but a few venues and shows may not return and larger venues and tours are unlikely to re-appear before 2021.


The Cradle Will Rock archive'Why don't you write a piece about all kinds of prostitution - the press, the church, the courts, the arts, the whole system?' - Bertolt Brecht to Marc Blitzstein This play with music, set in 'Steeltown, USA', The Cradle Will Rock tells the story of Larry Foreman and his attempts to unionise and battle the villainous businessman Mr. Mister. Originally directed and conceived by the legendary Orson Welles and produced by John Houseman, The Cradle Will Rock has gone down in theatrical history as the musical that defied an attempted ban by USA Federal Authorities with what may have been the most rousing and poignant opening night ever.

Author Marc Blitzstein.
