The Theatre’s trading performance was given a boost following easing of Covid-19 restrictions
the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre in Dublin’s south docklands recorded an increase in revenue and reduced losses last year as Covid-19 restrictions were eased and the venue was able to return to hosting full-capacity shows.
turnover rose to just under €3.1 million, up from almost €2.8 million in 2020. The company made a pretax loss of €1.2 million during the 12-month period, compared with a deficit of €2.1 million a year earlier.
The theatre was closed for the first eight months of 2021 due to Covid-19 . It was open with reduced capacity thereafter before moving to full capacity in November for hit musical The Book of Mormon written by Trey Parker and Matt Stone.
the family investment company owned by husband-and-wife team John and Bernie Gallagher. It acquired the theatre in 2014 and purchased the freehold on the property from the Dublin City Council in 2017.
The future looks bright for the large fixed seater venue. As the world of showbuisiness returns to the norm, the only venue in this country with a stage capable of producing high west-end London shows is sure to benefit even further into next year and the foreseeable.
