Love London Love Culture’s West End Theatre Picks: May 2019

Not sure what shows to go and see this month? Love London Love Culture rounds up a selection of West End shows that you might want to see…

Amour, Charing Cross Theatre: making its UK premiere at the Charing Cross Theatre, this musical features music by multi award-winning Michel Legrand with English lyrics by Jeremy Sams (from the original French by Didier Van Cauwelaert). It is based on the 1943 short story Le Passe-Muraille by Marcel Aymé.

The Comedy About a Bank Robbery, Criterion Theatre: Mischief Theatre’s third production in the West End is very different from The Play That Goes Wrong and Peter Pan Goes Wrong – so if you haven’t seen it yet then it is worth catching!

Emilia, Vaudeville Theatre: having made its debut at the Shakespeare’s Globe, this immensely popular show about  Emilia Bassano has proved popular with audiences and critics alike.

Only Fools and Horses, Theatre Royal Haymarket: for those who loved the original television series, this is a chance to reacquaint yourself with the characters in a completely new way. Again, it has proved popular with audiences and critics – so it is well worth catching!

Witness for the Prosecution, London County Hall: this is a rare opportunity to catch an Agatha Christie story in a unique setting that due to its popularity is now booking until 2020!

Mamma Mia!, Novello Theatre: having recently celebrated its 20th Birthday in the West End, now is the perfect time to visit this fun filled show. Ideal for a girls night out, you can book tickets through LLLC from as little as £18!

Tina – The Tina Turner Musical,Aldwych Theatre: inspired by Tina Turner’s extraordinary true story, this hard hitting but surprisingly uplifting musical features a huge number of her hits – before and after her relationship with Ike Turner.

Rosmersholm, Duke of York’s Theatre: starring Tom Burke, Hayley Atwell and Giles Terera, Ian Rickson directs the West End premiere of Duncan Macmillan‘s new adaptation of Henrik Ibsen’s play.

Come From Away, Phoenix Theatre: this joyous Broadway hit musical is a story filled with compassion and humanity as it recounts the story of the planes diverted to Canada during the wake of September 11th 2001.

Fiddler on the Roof, Playhouse Theatre: filled with extraordinary performances and wonderful set design, this production really sets the bar high for future productions of the musical. Highly recommended!
