It’s fair to say that we would have been lost without our various screens during the pandemic. Whatever your screen of choice – phone, tablet, laptop, computer, TV – we’ve all spent a great deal of time staring into them, searching for entertainment and connection.
But let’s face it: our eyes are hurting from screen saturation, our backs are aching from sitting on couches for too long, and our fingers are stiff from endless scrolling.
That’s right, it’s time to turn those screens off and enjoy live experiences once more – and the theatre is the perfect place to do just that!
“We’ve all turned to our home screens for entertainment in the past 18 months, and there’s been some fantastic streamed theatre on offer – but you just can’t beat the electric feeling of audience anticipation and the excited hush as the curtain rises in a full theatre,” says Emma de Souza, Head of Marketing and Communications at The Society of London Theatre. “No live performance is ever the same, and everyone in that room knows they’ve witnessed something unique and special.”
Whatever your fancy, you can find it on the stage. From musicals to murder mysteries, classics to comedies, tragedies to triumphs, there is a production that shouldn’t be missed. When you walk into a theatre, you’re getting ready to be moved to tears and to laughter and to see something truly spectacular. To see what’s on stage around London, head to OfficialLondonTheatre.com – you’re bound to find something that you’ll love!
One of the most special things about the theatre is that you get to experience all this with the rest of the audience too. It’s this shared feeling as you watch a story unfold on stage that makes a trip to the theatre such an incredible event.
“I love the atmosphere of the theatre!” says Shannon Mahanty, Grazia’s Entertainment Director. “After almost two years of intermittent lockdowns, being able to step away from screens and connect with communities in real life is so refreshing!”
