Go­ing to the theatre is good for your heart! A new study by Uni­ver­sity Col­lege Lon­don, Uni­ver­sity of Lan­caster and En­core Tick­ets found that a theatre show can boost your car­dio­vas­cu­lar sys­tem to the same ex­tent as do­ing 28 min­utes of car­dio ex­er­cise. ‘By the end of the first act, heart rates nearly dou­bled from their rest­ing state at the be­gin­ning, while in the sec­ond act, it tripled,’ says Dr Joseph Devlin who led the study, with par­tic­i­pants re­spond­ing to a live per­for­mance of Dream­girls. A work­out from the comfort of your theatre seat? We’ll give it a go!
