Here’s our guide to finding the right show for you during London Theatre Week – don’t forget to make the most of your experience with food and drinks before and after the show! 


There’s loads of great comedy available including The Book of Mormon, a hilarious musical from the creators of South Park; Company a musical about a 35-year-old woman being pressured to settle down; and the National Theatre’s transfer of Home, I’m Darling, a new comedy about one woman’s mission to be the perfect 1950’s housewife, starring IT Crowd’s Katherine Parkinson.



Check out musicals that everyone will love from Dolly Parton’s raucous 9 to 5, to the magical Wicked, the untold tale of Oz celebrating 12 years in the West End.

Family-friendly shows

For Disney fans, don’t miss Aladdin, one of the most spectacular productions in the West End – check it out ahead of the new film release this summer. For families with older kids, get great seats to Andrew Lloyd Webber’s School of Rock, based on the hit film, featuring an uber-talented cast of young musicians. 

Stories based on books

Based on Mark Haddon’s best-selling book, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, winner of seven Olivier Awards and five Tony Awards, is back on the West End. Or try Witness for the Prosecution, a unique take on Agatha Christie’s murder mystery set in London’s stunning County Hall.

Something outside-the-box

For something new, check out Showstopper! At The Other Palace, the world-class improvised comedy, or for something even more immersive, step into the exciting immersive adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby.

Where to grab a drink or bite to eat in the West End:

  • For food and drinks, try Joe Allen, an American restaurant that opened in 1977, a sister to the original in New York. It’s filled with theatre memorabilia, the perfect place for theatregoers!
  • For a theatrical vibe, head to Phoenix Arts Club in the heart of the West End. It’s a private members club but open to the public before 8pm, also winner of Time Out’s best Bar & Pub two years running.
  • For flexibility and quick service, try Vapiano’s, great handmade pasta and pizza cooked in front of you exactly as you want it.
  • Try Duck and Waffle Local, inspired by the famous Duck and Waffle restaurant and signature dish without the two-month wait period!
