Start the New Year as you mean to go on – with tickets to some great London theatre! You can catch a fantastic new show, grab a bargain Rush ticket or try your luck with our Front Row Lotteries. Here are some top theatre shows to see in London in January 2017.

The Glass Menagerie


Duke of York’s Theatre, 26th January – 29th April

Director John Tiffany (Harry Potter and the Cursed Child) brings Tennessee Williams‘ classic play, The Glass Menagerie, to London. Cherry Jones leads the cast as Amanda Wingfield, a matriarch who’s desperate to marry off her reclusive daughter, Laura. To help her Laura meet a match, Amanda enlists her son, Tom, to bring suitors home, hoping that sparks will fly.

Sam Wanamaker Playhouse, 26th January – 16th June

Loosely based on bizarre real-life events from Renaissance Italy, The White Devil is the compelling tale of villains, victims and conspirators, moving through reality and the world of nightmares. The Duke of Brachiano murders his wife in order to possess another woman, triggering a cycle of violence, deceit and madness that shatters family bonds and moral values. If you’ve never seen a play in the flickering candlelight of the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse, this would make a great first show!

The Girls
