    After months of silence on stages across the country, the curtain has risen on the first indoor musical since the coronavirus lockdown. Sleepless is an adaptation of the classic romcom Sleepless in Seattle. The musical has opened at Wembley’s Troubadour Theatre, which can hold more than 1,000 people but only around 400 are now allowed in to enable social distancing. However it is very different as everyone must wear a mask, but there’s applause for a return to a new normal. Cast and crew are tested for Covid-19 every day, it takes an hour to get the results back and adds £70,000 to production costs. Former pop-star Jay McGuinness told ITV News: “The first week we had two positive results and that meant every time you took your test you thought is today my day. And since then it’s been consistently negative across the board.” • Subscribe to ITV News on YouTube: http://bit.ly/2lOHmNj • Get breaking news and more stories at http://www.itv.com/news Follow ITV News on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/itvnews/ Follow ITV News on Twitter: https://twitter.com/itvnews Follow ITV News on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/itvnews/
