The theatre impresario Cameron Mackintosh gave the gloomiest prognosis to the singer Michael Ball on BBC Radio 2 today.
He went on to say: ‘I think from the moment social distancing doesn’t exist anymore, it will take us four to five months to actually get the actors back together. I think the truth it we won’t be able to come back until early next year.’
He added: ‘An audience going together spaced out would be a horrible experience. It’s the experience that makes it so unique.’
