London Theatre Breaks What’s On West End

September 26, 2010
Included here on the London Theatre breaks posterous is a hand post from the Usefulwiki theatre blog which lists in a nice clean box the current West End Shows. Only the musicals are listed, and the big west end ones at that so if you are looking for a serious play without music, or a comedy, or a fringe theater musical then you would need to look up one of our other posts such as the one about Theatre Breaks to see Plays on the magazine. After the What’s On Now guide, there’s a short list of musicals that are coming soon, and that’s the exciting pat to watch if you have already seen quite a few London musicals. Ghost is teh one that Linda is keeping an eye on, and it still seems like an age before we get to see Danielle Hope in Dorothy, but coming soon is Love Story which Michael Ball has had a hand in so that could well be worth an autumnal evening in Theatreland.

It’s interesting to see which musicals are ending isn’t it? Farewell to Oliver then, after what seems like a short run but was in fact at least average for the West End I think. Sweet Charity was great, and it’s a shame the Whoopi Goldberg run in Sister Act couldn’t have been extended but I suppose they need the theatre to start all the changes to the stage in time for Wizard of Oz. As for Avenue Q, well I don’t realy have an opinion worth sharing on that one. Enjoy your London Theatre Breaks!
