Weekend Theatre Breaks in London

December 22, 2009

Between Christmas and New Year, in January, February and at spring time are all good times for going on weekend theatre breaks in London. All the top shows are there in the West End waiting, the hotels are not too busy and the city nightlife is just the thing to keep you going during the long winter.

Weekend Theatre Breaks in London

The best thing about weekend theatre breaks in London is that you don’t have to take any time off of work to get the short break in. Zip down the country on a Friday afternoon instead of going home early and you can be taking your seat in one of London’s grand old theatres ready to take in one of the bog musicals just as your colleagues are sitting down at home to an evening meal.

So that gives you the whole of Saturday to mooch about in the capital, take in a museum or gallery, stroll by the river  or whatever takes your fancy to do in London. Make your way home leisurely on Saturday afternoon, early evening or else book in for a two nighter and have a second great night out in the West End.

Sister Act Theatre Breaks in London

November 21, 2008

I know it’s early days yet, but I just have a feeling that Sister Act
Theatre Breaks in London are going to become one of the staples in 2009/2010. What is it about singing Nuns?

Sister Act The Musical

Sister Act The Musical

Sister Act the musical isn’t going to have Whoopi Goldeberg in it acting as Deloris though, she’ll be taking a producing role, so the stage version of Sister Act The Musical will be adapted quite a bit from the famous film and its sequel Sister Act II. The music is going to be less Motown and more musical theatre with an original score by by 8 time Oscar winner Alan Menken whose credits include Little Shop of Horrors, Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid and most recently the hit movie Enchanted.
