Due to London's current predicament, with transport around the capital severely affected by heavy snow storms, it is thought that some shows may have to cancel performances on Monday 2 February. Theatregoers are being advised to contact theatres before starting out on their journey.

With travel around London disrupted and, in many cases, brought to a standstill by weather conditions unrivalled for nearly two decades, it is currently unknown whether tonight’s performances will go ahead as planned. Theatres are working hard to ensure performers and staff make it safely into the West End, but performance cancellations may be necessary, especially with further snow flurries predicted for later in the day.
