The major difference is that people are only on trains for a few minutes, and can easily move if they are confronted with an uncomfortable situation. Science tells us that time is a critical factor in these infections, and sitting in a theatre with 100s of others for a couple of hours is much worse than being on the tube or subway etc.
"

Well not always just a few minutes no. I've had to travel over an hour at times depending on where I am working. Also you're a lot closer to others than you will be if they are removing rows and 5 seats separating people. Six is only 75 minutes and the other shows will probably be shorter also. The Bridge shows are all around an hour I believe. Plus you aren't going to be face to face with other people outside of your bubble, so there is little chance of transmission I'd have thought.

I had to get the tube a few weeks back for the first time since March and half the people in my carriage did not even have masks on. I was mortified. But you could tell every one of them was just itching for someone to say something to them so they could explode at you, so you just had to ignore it.

I'd have thought so, but I haven't seen it so I'm not sure.

Superstar definitely is, but it's open air.

Not according to the article. And on the Nimax website you can start booking Jamie for performances beginning November 8th.

Nica Burns continues:

“Also returning in due course, when the conditions make it possible, are Everybody’s Talking About Jamie (Apollo theatre), Magic Goes Wrong (Vaudeville theatre) and The Play That Goes Wrong (Duchess theatre).

A lot of shows are selling from November as I think that was the time everyone was hoping to re-open.
