Andrew Lloyd Webber said he’ll risk arrest to reopen his theatres – 9 on-song takedowns

As you’ll no doubt be aware, the government’s plan to fully relax all Covid restrictions on 21 June may not happen because of fears over variants and the rising number of cases.

And theatre impresario Andrew Lloyd Webber is not happy at the prospect of having to keep his theatres shut any longer just because, you know, experts say it might save lives and stuff.

He’s so not happy, in fact, that he said he’d rather risk being arrested than not go ahead with his new production of Cinderella (previews begin on 25 June folks!) He’s what he told the Telegraph.

“We are going to open, come hell or high water … We will say: ‘come to the theatre and arrest us.’

“If the government ignore their own science, we have the mother of all legal cases against them. If Cinderella couldn’t open, we’d go, ‘Look, either we go to law about it or you’ll have to compensate us.”’

And these 9 takedowns all hit the right note.
