This has been another busy week for Love London Love Culture, but here is our guide to some of the hottest things to see and do in the capital…
1. Rosencrantz and Gildenstern are Dead, Old Vic Theatre: Daniel Radcliffe and David Haig star in this new production of Tom Stoppard’s play, which sees two minor characters of Shakespeare’s Hamlet take centre stage, stumbling in and out of the action throughout. It has received a relatively warm reception from critics. Booking until the 29th April.

2. Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, Harold Pinter Theatre: critics are once again raving about Imelda Staunton’s performance, her first appearance on the London stage since Gypsy at the Savoy Theatre. This time she stars in this new production of Edward Albee’s classic play directed by James MacDonald, which has won over audiences and critics alike. Booking until the 27th May.

3. One Last Thing (For Now), Old Red Lion Theatre: Althea Theatre presents this beautiful piece of theatre that spans generations and conflicts to show the power of letters and how they can be used to express and conceal feelings. A number of different stories form this mesmerising piece of theatre. Read Love London Love Culture’s review here. Booking until the 25th March.
4. The Credit Suisse Exhibition: Michelangelo & Sebastiano, National Gallery: now open at the gallery, this spring exhibition is equally fascinating as it is a visual treat to see so many of these pieces of art placed together to create a display filled with compare and contrasts between the two artists. Well worth a visit – particularly if you are an art student. On display until the 25th June. Read Love London Love Culture’s review here.
5.The Frogs, Jermyn Street Theatre: this bizarre Stephen Sondheim musical has plenty to offer those looking for a little bit of a distraction from the real world. A great cast ensures an entertaining trip to Hades for all! Read Love London Love Culture’s review here. Booking until 8th April.
