Are you planning to spend some time in London this summer? Are you looking for an enjoyable way to spend an evening? Would you like to experience the atmosphere of one of the latest West End shows? I can give some ideas.
Here are some suggestions by Jamie Squillare:
- BILLY ELLIOTT: THE MUSICAL at the Victoria Palace Theater. This story is set during the miners strike and tells of a young boy, whose mother has recently passed away, who seeks solace in ballet rather than boxing classes with his mates. Music is by Elton John and it is written by John Hall. An excellent version of the classic 2000 movie.
- THE BOOK OF MORMON at the Prince of Wales Theater. This is an unrelenting production that has successfully made its way across the Atlantic from New York. It is created by Trey Parker and Matt Stone, who some of you may recognise as the creators of South Park. It has achieved a bit of a reputation for being outlandishly offensive.
- MATILDA: THE MUSICAL at the Cambridge Theater. Adapted by Dennis Kelly from the well known Roald Dahl novel and with a musical score written by the comedian Tim Minchon this production has gained the title of “the Best New Musical Since Billy Elliott”.
- THE PAJAMA GAME at the Shaftesbury Theater. This is a Richard Ayres production that comes close to his famous production Guys and Dolls.
- THE COMMITMENTS at the Palace Theater. Soul classics from an Irish group that considers themselves and other Irish musicians to be the “niggers of Europe”. Songs from Tamla Motown and Stax will excite your eardrums and get your feet tapping.
- I CAN’T SING at the London Palladium. This musical has been written by Harry Hill and for most will be very funny. It is unconventional and at times a little rude regarding television personality Simon Cowell.
- JERSEY BOYS at the Prince Edward Theater. This is the story of a group from the wrong side of the tracks in New Jersey, whose influences are hits from Frankie Vallie and the Four Seasons.
- THE LION KING at the Lyceum Theater. Amazing stage set design and cast of 48 talented performers brings this famous Disney movie to life. So far it has been seen by more than 8 million people and grossed nearly 300 million.
- MAMMA MIA at the Novello Theater. If you remember ABBA and loved their lively tunes this is definitely a must see.
- THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA at Her Majesty’s Theater. The second longest musical of all time this Andrew Webber production tells of a disfigured man who resides under the Paris Opera House falling in love with his beautiful protegee.
