| By Nicholas Ephram Ryan Daniels
After taking a brief hiatus in solidarity with recent events, LTD's [Lockdown] Theatre Direct is back in full force for a whole new week of theatrical goodies. We all have been starving for some West End musical action. Now with Andrew Lloyd Webber's ambitious plans to prove shows can get back up and running in a safe manner, perhaps the return of the stage is just around the corner! In the meantime, let's all think positive thoughts and celebrate the performing arts with Week 11 of [Lockdown] Theatre Direct. Here's the line-up we got in store for you this time around:
Lockdown Takeover with Olivia Moore - All Day Tuesday (23 June 2020) on Instagram Stories / Live
This time, [Lockdown] Theatre Direct gets super Waitress-y. Kicking off Week 11 tomorrow will be none other than Olivia Moore, who is perhaps best known for covering the roles of Dawn and Jenna, as well as ensemble roles in the West End transfer production of Waitress The Musical. Moore is also noted for appearing in Heathers: The Musical at The Other Palace alongside Cinderella star Carrie Hope Fletcher.
Moore will be taking over London Theatre Direct's Instagram profile for a day, showing you a day in the lockdown life of a London musical theatre actress. Get ready for an all-day insider look complete with entertaining IGTV videos and snapshots. Don't miss it!
