London’s West End is home to some of the most famous shows of all time, with sell-outs every night and some of the world’s biggest theatre stars calling the West End stage ‘home’. Second only to Broadway, New York, the West End represents the most concentrated region of commercial theatre in the world, with more than forty venues putting on up to eight shows a week.
TicketsToSee can source and supply tickets for any West End shows, whether you are partial to a bit of melodrama a la Phantom of the Opera, or whether you want something altogether more serious, such as any one of the numerous Shakespearian tragedies taking place across the capital. Many of these shows sell out months in advance and are very different to get tickets for, but we can help you to obtain VIP sets in the orchestra stalls or the circle, offering a prime view of the action for you and all of your guests.
Currently playing on the West End are a multitude of shows that are reeling in the crowds. War Horse, the acclaimed play brought to life on film in recent years, is in residence at the New London theatre, while an adaptation of the famous novel, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time, is playing to sold-out crowds and rave reviews at the Apollo Theatre.
If you like your London theatre tickets to open up a world of glitz, glamour and tap dancing tenors, the more conventional musicals are sure to put a spring in your step. Top Hat, Spamalot and The 39 Steps are all currently in residence across London, offering musical delights from a range of eras. If contemporary musicals are more your forte, Wicked, still a roaring success every night, is on at the Apollo Victoria, while award-winning Matilda: The Musical and the much-feted comedy The Book of Mormon are both featuring in extended runs due to their overwhelming popularity.
Then there are the stalwarts; the enduring favourites that are breaking records and thrilling audiences even years after their launch. Les Miserables is the West End’s longest running musical, having been running for an incredible 28 years, whilst Phantom of the Opera runs it close having opened just one year later. The Lion King is now in its 14th year, and the inimitable Stomp has been running since 2002. All of these shows are classic, timeless hits with famous songs and unforgettable performances from the full casts.
The West End is also packed with restaurants and hotels that offer perfect vantage points for those spending a weekend experiencing everything the London theatre scene has to offer. Small cafes offer wonderful lunch deals and some of the most prestigious restaurants and hotels in the world are present to offer a truly luxurious experience for those with a love of all things theatrical.
