    I've just recently seen Oliver at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane (http://londontheatre.com/theatres/theatre-royal) in the West End. I saw I'd Do Anything on tv and loved the songs and the show itself on stage is stupendous! I've also heard that Griff Rhys Jones may be making a re-appearance in December and heard he was awesome

    All My Sons, haven't seen it live but I know it's on in London at the moment and I've read the play and it is veryyy good. It's a tragedy set just after WW2 in American. Got lots of twists in it.

    There's lots on in the west end - what sort of show do you want?

    A really serious play?
    A mildly serious play?
    A silly musical with no story?
    A "serious" musical?
    An opera?

    If you're not going till next summer and you appreciate Shakespeare I recommend going to the Globe at some point in your trip (the new season there will start in May I think) - it's completely different to your West End type theatre and you can get a standing ticket for £5, so if you're already in London for West End shows it's a cheap way of adding on something extra.

    The Mousetrap. It's one of the few things I'd actually go to the West End to see. It's a murder-mystery, with a twist...so, why not?

    Deathtrap (It has Simon Russel Beale in it, and also Jonathan Groff, the dude from Glee, if either of them are of interest to you)

    Sweet Charity/Avenue Q before they close.

    Either that or Henry IV or The Merry Wives of Windsor at the Globe, both fantastic productions.

    Sadly the season there closes tomorrow and only reopens around next May I think. As I said in a previous post, once you have a big show booked it's a good thing to add to your trip for a fiver.

    Last time I was in London I saw Wicked and Jersey Boys which I enjoyed immensely. Both very exciting shows.

    If you want to see a play I would see War Horse. It's amazing!

    It's quite heavy subject matter but if you're interested, you should go and see Blackwatch.

    I saw the current cast in Glasgow a few weeks ago and it was the best piece of theatre i have ever seen. Definetly not what i expected, but absolutely brilliant.
