Theatre in London this Autumn 2019
Posted on August 31st, 2019
As I’m sure you know, we are all huge theatre fans here at LLW, from musical theatre to plays to dance, you name it 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. Both are still playing and well worth seeing. This Autumn we have some really good Theatre finds for you.
Autumn 2019 choices.
A Very Expensive Poison at The Old Vic. This remarkable story is told
The Man in the White Suit , this classic comedy returns to the Wyndham Theatre.
Cyrano de Bergerac with James McAvoy. This opens November 27 at the Playhouse Theatre and is sure to be popular, booking opens this month!
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 Shaftsbury Theatre.
The Son, the final in Zeller’s trilogy is a must see through November 2 at the Duke of York’s.
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.
The Wolf of Wall Street. OK, not for everyone, but this is immersive theatre with Jordan Belfort centre stage! Not for the faint hearted…..
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.
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 looks so much fun. It’s an immersive 4-hour Abba spectacular with a 3 course dinner. Ouzo a-plenty. We’re off to ‘sample’ it all next week so will report back! On until Feb 2020.
Theatre 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 seats and better priced seats than West End but just as good.
