A few stage doors

Due to ongoing COVID-19 / Delta Variant cases rising, there are ongoing extreme safety protocols that still have to be dealt with. These last few weeks, some of the hottest tickets in London’s West End sadly will NOT be doing the popular post-show stage door. Some of these shows included….

and more.
In case anyone may not know, stage door following a performance of any show whether on Broadway, in London’s West End, or on tour. There, audience members / fans can wait outside to meet members of the cast. As they emerge, they’ll sign autographs and takes photos. In addition, super fans give gifts.
Usually with stage door, it gets very tight. With COVID-19 and Delta Variant still spreading, this is to make sure everyone is healthy, safe, and no one gets sick.
