London Theatre Breaks and Packages
Part of the government’s response to Coronavirus included shutting down London’s Theatreland.
But soooner or later, the curtains will raise at the theatres, the hotels will plump up their pillows and the restaurants will turn on their ovens and open their doors.
When London’s Theatre Breaks start up again, there will be some old favourites (our sister company, Theatrebreaks.co.uk, is already taking bookings for Matilda, Les Miserables and The Lion King for the autumn and winter seasons), but there will also be some new musicals: Andrew Lloyd Webber’s new musical, Cinderella; the stage version of the hit musical movie Moulin Rouge, and none other than Disney’s Frozen!
London’s theatreland is ripe with great shows for any occassion. So what is Good to See in London in 2020 and 2021?
What is Good to See in London
So if you are coming to London for a couple of days to see a show then the package you are going to buy is called a theatre break – or more specifically a London theatre break.
So what are THE shows to see?
Come From Away harks back to the 9/11 attrocity and how a community in Newfoudland looked after over 6000 travellers for a week, when US airspace was closed down and 36 planes were diverted to their small town’s airfield. The story is a wonderful, uplifting tale about how communities pull together in times of strife.
The Lion King is a cracking family show by Disney, but if you are treating the kids they will love Roald Dahl’s Matilda – the story of a little girl with special powers – adapted for stage by Aussie comic, Tim Minchin!
The Phantom of the Opera is probably the grand daddy of them all and I am sure that you will not be disappointed! But if you are not sure, try Les Miserables, gosh it is dramatic!
Dreamwork’s The Prince of Egypt has just opened – I went to the opening night and was even invited to the after-show party!
Or if you want some irreverant fun, the writers of South Park have given us The Book of Mormon.
Of course there are a few people who don’t like musicals and would prefer a play. We have all heard about the long running The Mousetrap (now in its 67th year) and the award winning Woman in Black that was also made into a film – The Play That Goes Wrong – from the same theatre company who brought The Goes Wrong Show to our TV screens over Christmas (remember Christmas?) – is a crackingly fast paced comedy and will brighten any London break.
So whatever you fancy, there is bound top be something good to see in London!
