Here’s a guide to a few of the best things to watch in London this week….
An American in Paris, Dominion Theatre: after wowing critics on its opening night , the hit musical is proving equally popular with audiences, making it one of the must-see musicals at the moment. If you love dance then you will certainly not want to miss this treat of a show – beautiful to watch as it is to listen to.

The Plague, Arcola Theatre: playing until the 6th May, this new adaptation of The Plague by Albert Camus tells the story of what it is like to live through a crisis and fighting against despair, written in the aftermath of Nazis’ march across Europe. Discover what critics thought of it here.
Half a Sixpence, Noel Coward Theatre: it is the one show in the West End which no one seems to have a bad thing to say about – quite rightly so. There is a light hearted, gracefulness about it that has you beaming from ear to ear throughout – not least the performance from Charlie Stemp as Arthur Kipps. Very much worth a watch.

Miss Nightingale, The Vaults: for those looking for entertainment away from the West End should pop along and see this absolutely spiffing musical about hidden love, friendship and loyalty set in the background of World War II. Here’s a reminder of what Love London Love Culture thought.
Carousel, London Coliseum: while it would be fair to say that reviews for Lonny Price’s production have been mixed, Love London Love Culture was pleasantly surprised with how enjoyable it was – yes it is flawed in terms of character development, but this just meant that the music could really take centre stage thanks to some fantastic performances.
