Theatre in London this Autumn 2019
Posted on August 31st, 2019
At Little London Whispers we are all huge theatre fans from musical theatre to plays to dance, you name it and we usually have an opinion on it. This summer we have seen some great theatre; Fiddler on the Roof which was absolutely brilliant, and the charming and very funny musical Waitress. This Autumn we have some really good theatre pics for you.
Autumn 2019 choices.
Cyrano de Bergerac with James McAvoy. This opens November 27 at the Playhouse Theatre and is sure to be popular, booking opens this month! We’ve heard mixed reports on this so far..
Touching the Void, we hear this play will keep you on the edge of your seat! From November 9 at the Duke of York’s Theatre.
Ghost Stories, Boo, we are ready to be frightened at the Ambassador’s Theatre.
& Juliet, This looks to be great fun with fab music, at The Shaftesbury Theatre. It’s Romeo & Juliet the juke box musical. If you love 80/90’s’s music it will have you humming away. The leading lady gives an astonishing performance – she is fabulous. A heads up though, we saw this and it really wasn’t our thing.
SIX. If you haven’t see this, it is one of the best things in the West End. The momentum it has gathered is so well deserved. An absolute favourite of ours – we are going back this Christmas.
The Wolf of Wall Street. OK, not for everyone, but this is immersive theatre with Jordan Belfort centre stage! Not for the faint hearted…
The Boy in the Dress. David Walliams book comes to life at the RSC with music by Robbie Williams and Guy Chambers. Sounds like the dream team 8 Nov 2019 – 8 March 2020.
Come From Away. If you haven’t seen this you should. We held back and honestly wonder why. It’s the story of 9/11 when 38 planes were forced to land at the little town of Gander in Canada.
Dear Evan Hansen. This musical finally reaches our shores from Broadway. It is a West End debut for Sam Tutty. Having seen the show, we can honestly say his performance is one that will stay with you a long time. We thoroughly enjoyed it.
Mary Poppins returns to London. Magic for little ones who need a spoonful of sugar.
Mamma Mia! The Party. If you love Abba like we do and want to be a dancing queen for an evening at the O2, this is so much fun. It’s an immersive 4-hour Abba spectacular with a 3 course dinner. Ouzo a-plenty. Read what we thought about it here. On until Feb 2020.
Theatre preview for Christmas
The Nutcracker. London Coliseum. Just magical and delightful.
Sleeping Beauty and Coppelia. Royal Opera House. Sumptuous, gorgeous classical ballet.
Royal Festival Hall. A feast of classical Christmas, including the brilliant Messiah.
Royal Albert Hall. A brilliant programme of Christmas carol sing-a-longs, The Nutcracker, gospel choirs, choristers and Katherine Jenkins.
A Christmas Carol. The Old Vic. The original. The best Christmas story.
White Christmas. Dominion Theatre. The other classic festive feel-good play.
The Snow Queen. At the lovely Rose Theatre in Kingston. Comfortable and better priced seats than in the West End but just as good.
The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe at The Bridge. A childhood favourite and we are definitely off to see this one.
Billionaire Boy. By David Walliams 13 Dec 2019 – 5 Jan 2020.
