CHATTER AWAY: Overnight Open Thread

Playbill reports:

The Society of London Theatre and UK Theatre Association have announced that all SOLT theatres (which includes all of the West End) and all UK Theatre venues (a large number of Off-West End theatres and houses across the country) will temporarily close their doors beginning March 16.

The announcement comes shortly after British Prime Minister Boris Johnson encouraged people to avoid the theatre, among other venues, during the coronavirus pandemic.

The sweeping move comes four days after Broadway houses and New York City’s theatres made the move to temporarily cease performances in response to new restrictions from Governor Andrew Cuomo on March 12. “They will remain closed until further notice and will re-open when possible, following government regulations,” reads the statement.
