Cameron Mackintosh Believes Theatre Will Not Come Back Until 'Early Next Year'

Cameron Mackintosh Believes Theatre Will Not Come Back Until 'Early Next Year'

Producer Cameron Mackintosh chatted with Michael Ball this morning on his BBC Radio 2 show, where he provided his insight on what he thinks the future of re-opening theatres looks like.

"The truth is, until social distancing doesn't exist anymore, we can't even plan to reopen," he said. "And I think from the moment social distancing doesn't exist anymore, it will take us four to five months to actually get the actors back together. I think the truth is we won't be able to come back until early next year."

Mackintosh goes on to say that theatres re-opening with social distancing guidelines in place would be a "horrible experience."

"We want the audience to feel safe, and we want the actors to feel safe," he said. "An audience going together spaced out would be a horrible experience. It's the experience that makes it so unique."
