Making its Broadway debut in 1988, “ The Phantom of the Opera” is the longest running musical on the Broad2ay stage, but on London’s West End there is a play that has been running for generations!
“The Mousetrap” by Agatha Christie made its debut on the London stage in 1952 and has been a part of the English theatrical scene ever since…until a virus named Corona brought the world to a halt in March.
Looking at an October 23 opening, “The Mousetrap” is set to be one of the first theatrical productions on the West End to re-open.
The design of the St. Martin’s Theatre will allow them to practice the proper safety protocols including social distancing – something many theatres cannot accommodate.
The re-opening of “The Mousetrap” is part of the stage re-opening process as the United Kingdom continues to recover in the wake of theCovid-19 pandemic.
