The theatre beckons

There’s ‘no business like show business’ as far tourism to London is concerned.

Picture1When Irving Berlin first told us that there was indeed ‘no business like show business’ back in the early 1950’s members of the Buffalo Bill Wild West Show were singing their hearts in in an effort to get Annie Oakley to join the show.

Well little has changed, except that these days it is holidaymakers from all over the world who are joining the show and to do so they are buying some 14 million-odd tickets. Talk about Wild West End shows!

One of the reasons for the huge international popularity of London’s theatre is the steady stream of all-dancing all-singing musicals which naturally don’t put a strain any holidaymaker’s English and currently account for just over half all London theatre land visits.

There are the all-time favourites such as Wicked, Mamma Mia, Lion King, and Les Miserables, ‘juke box’ musicals like Jersey Boys which reprises the story of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, Beautiful, the Carole King musical and new shows like Kinky Boots, Motown the Musicaland Funny Girl starring Sheridan Smith which premiers in April 2016.

 And if you want to get the seats you’d like, for the show you really want to see it is highly advisable to book ahead, particularly in the peak Summer season or for newly launched productions, bearing in mind that a quarter of all the visitors coming to London, both domestic and international, will be going to see a show during their stay.

Websites like www.theatrepeople.com offer discounted seat to all London shows and also have a range of theatre and meal or theatre and hotel deals which will save you a great deal for the add-ons.  In fact you can pretty well have a meal before the show and a ticket for about the same price as you would have paid at the box office on the day.

If you are just looking for a show for that night head down to Leicester Square and the TKTS booth which is operated by the Society of London Theatre and also has discounted tickets up to half price.

So head for the wild open spaces of Charing Cross Road and Shaftesbury Avenue in the heart of Theatreland and let them show you the business!
