The MouseTrap - Review - Reopening the Westend May 17th 2021 

It's been a long time coming but the Westend is well on its way to reopening now and hopefully for good. 

Last night was incredibly special firstly to be there to see The Mousetrap in it's first show back since the Theatre closure in March 2020 but also to be back doing that feels so normal again. 

For those that have any worries about going out to see shows again let me put your mind at rest. All tickets at the moment are sold with social distancing measures in place. On the day of the show you are emailed a link to the QR codes for your tickets. You can also fill in your details for track and trace so you don't have to worry about it on arrival. 

Also with this link is a place for you to order your pre show/interval drinks along with your merchandise which in turn in then delivered to your seats so you don't have to worry about any crowds or queues at the bar. You do need to wear your mask during the show (unless exempt) and whilst moving around in the theatre but it is ok to remove for any food or drink. When the link to the tickets is sent it also gives you the time to arrive for entry and which door you need to go to. After the show all the staff safely helped everyone with exiting. There was no rush and no stress at all for anyone. 

Every member of staff at the theatre last night were amazing and you could see how relaxed everyone was during the show.

Before the show started Adam Spiegel the producer came out to make a speech to welcome everyone back. He was met with a very loud applause before and after his speech which set the atmosphere for how happy everyone was to be back. 

As the lights went up for the show the cast gave it 100% from the start. Every single person on stage did their roles so well it left you completely in the story trying to work out who had committed the crime. As the story went on we came up with many theories for how we thought the story would end but you have to see it to make your own ones up. 

The first rule of seeing the show is you keep it to yourself and having now finally see the show I can see why as it keeps the mysterious legacy of the show on going.

It was a perfect way for the Westend to reopen and leads the way for more shows to follow.

If you have seen it let me know below without giving clues away what your thoughts were.
