The West End is allowing audiences to see world-class entertainment before their very eyes. There are plenty of opportunities to catch celebrities in person — still from a safe distance — as well as virtually. From high-energy musical, classic dramas and new stories, having a celebrity in a show can introduce a new audience to the theatre, which can only be a good thing .
