Am I ready to return to the theatre?

I know I have been preaching support the arts and save our theatres, the truth is I am not sure if I am ready to go back.

I believe that it is from August that theatres can open? I am not so sure so don’t quote me on that but if and when they open I am unsure if I will be able to go back.

I really want to, don’t get me wrong I want to see a show, support venues and artists and review performances on this blog for you lovely lot. But I am unsure if I am ready to do that.

I am going outside more but I have not been in shops or on public transport yet so I don’t know how I feel about theatre. I would have to physically see videos or pictures of how the venues were going to have their spaces covid safe before I visited.

When I go, I know it won’t be the same, there will be masks, social distance chairs etc There will be lots of safety measures in place and I worry that I will be more concerned about that than the actual performance itself.

As I say, I really do want to go back but I am not quite ready yet, perhaps if it were outside I would feel better but for now, I can’t see myself going back yet.

So I am trying to write about theatres and trying to support them virtually in any way that I can.
