I’m thinking of taking a trip to London this summer, probably in August, and I’d like to see some shows while I’m there. I know I definitely want to see Next to Normal at Donmar Warehouse - does anyone have other recommendations for what I should see? I’m interested in seeing some things/having some experiences that I wouldn’t be able to get in New York or Chicago or elsewhere in the US (so not Les Mis, Moulin Rouge, Hamilton, etc). Any particularly creative or unique productions would be great. Thanks in advance!

I'm planning on going to London in late May / early June, so I'm interested in the responses to this thread.

-The immersive production of Guys and Dolls looks interesting. I think it starts soon, so I haven't heard reviews yet.

-I also have my eye on The Burnt City. It's done by the same group that did Sleep No More. This production is themed around the fall of Troy.

-The Old Vic is bringing back their production of Groundhog Day with Andy Karl in the lead (a role for which he won the Olivier award). I'm very biased, but it's an unappreciated gem that's being brought back for a limited period of time.

highly recommend Cabaret - while expensive - score a table ticket - the closer the better.   And heck, you get dinner with it...totally immersive  

Excited to hear reports on GUYS AND DOLLS at Bridge

and hold a space or two for something special that might pop up

Yeah, it's basically Sleep No More but bigger and with fewer headaches (fewer stairs, no running, larger spaces for the audience, more polite audiences, etc.).

It's bigger but much more sparse and nowhere near as good. I was so bored.


Listen, I don't take my clothes off for anyone, even if it is "artistic". - JANICE

Lucie Jones is going back into Les Mis. I have only heard wonderful things of her performance as Fantine! Even if you've seen it before, maybe look into cheaper day of tickets to see her. 


Do any of you stop to think about how you treat others? I have no problem blocking people :)

Lucie is fantastic but her attendance record less so, I hear. Even still the new staging of “Les Mis” is, in my opinion, worth seeing.
