The London stage has plenty of celebrities performing in a wide range of shows. So here is a guide to some of those you can spot on stage this month…

1. Gemma Arterton in Nell Gwynn, Apollo Theatre: starring as the title role in this West End transfer of Jessica Swale’s play, Gemma Arterton delivers a top notch performance, with fantastic support from the rest of the cast (read Love London Love Culture’s thoughts here). Well worth a watch before it closes on the 30th April.

2.
