All the Stage’s a World: 2020 Theatre

So I managed a few theatre trips before lockdown — when I with the rest of the world switched to YouTube and National Theatre Live (some of which are chronicled here). The audiences at A Number and The Visit were notably thin, although bad reviews for the latter perhaps didn’t help. I also narrowly missed seeing the reworked A Dolls House, which was pulled as I arrived at Waterloo Station about two hours before curtain up.

I don’t think I can come to a top ten, but Leopoldstadt was likely the highlight — but it’s an over-wordy play redeemed by its sadly inevitable kick in the teeth at the end.

I have a faint feeling I’ve missed something — but maybe they were 2019.
