Among the many great things that help to make London one of the must-visit cities of the world is its unrivalled history of theatre entertainment. The city is home to some of the world’s most historic and impressive theatres, which help to attract the biggest names from the entertainment sphere to the capital.
And so when you’re next in one of the Montcalms, why not take the opportunity to enjoy one of the great shows being staged in the city? Among the most popular of these is We Will Rock You, which has attracted as many as 6.5 million people across more than 4,600 performances since it was first staged.Globally, the show has been seen by 15 million people and is also the longest-running show at the Dominion by some distance.
When it opened in 2002, We Will Rock You was directed by Christopher Renshaw and featured choreography from Arlene Phillips, who will be a familiar name to fans of reality TV in the UK. Nigel Planer and Kerry Ellis starred in the first shows and while it was originally a critical failure, it has gone on to achieve spectacular commercial success.
But the show isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, of course, and so what if you’re keen to enjoy another show? Well, you’re really spoilt for choice in London, as there are a wide range of great shows being staged throughout the year. One of the best of these is Book of Mormon, which has been a huge success with critics and the public. The show is written by the creators of South Park, the popular US sitcom, and is certainly one to look forward to.
Alternatively, you could head into the West End to watch the Lion King, which is among the most popular shows and is definitely great way to entertain the kids.
