Friday 29 July 2011
If you are wondering what is the best show in London, then the best thing to do, is to begin by searching theatre reviews and guides. These can be found in newspapers, and industry magazines.
There are so many excellent musicals and plays in the West End, so it can be hard to determine what is the best show. This really is built on the individual’s preference. It really depends what you are looking for, if you are looking for light-hearted musicals then you can choose from something well known like We Will Rock You, Wicked, Lion King, Mamma Mia! Or Legally Blonde. These leading musicals are very well known with hen parties, groups of tourists, and regular musical fans! They are some of the best selling shows at the moment, which would indicate they are some of the best to visit!
If this is all a bit new to you, and you just want to visit London and see the best show, then why not search for those shows that have been some of the longest running. For example Les Miserables opened in the West End in 1985 and has been on stage for over 25 years, so this definitely proves to be one of the best shows! Blood Brothers opened in 1983, and is still a sell out show after all these years.
If it is a play you would like to see, then The Mousetrap is one of the best and most popular. It is also undoubtedly the longest running! It opened in 1952 at the Ambassadors theatre and was shown for 21 years. It then transferred to The St Martins Theatre in 1974 and is still running there after more than 30 years.
If you wondering what the best show at the moment is, then many of the plays only run for a short time, so its good to keep reading the guides to see what the word on the street is, so you don’t miss your chance to visit.
If you are a member of a social network service, you can always search for shows and read comments by members of the public. You will really get some honest opinions!
Hopefully these tips have given you some help in finding out which is the best show in London
