Valentine's day is coming up and me and my boy want to watch a musical.
I *really* wanted to wanted Phantom of the Opera, but the best tickets have sold out, so any other recommendations?
I've heard Lion King, Warhorse, Billy Elliot + Wicked are good, but are they really that good? Just want to make sure I'm seeing the right musical
PS I'm really not into cheesy stuff..
Hard to recommend something when I don't know what you like.
I have seen most of the shows in the West End and I find the best (first time round) are the ones I already know some of the music/songs.
You could try Mama Mia (Abba) or We will rock you (Queen) - these only use the groups music and are not about the bands - I'm off to see We will rock you, for the second time in a couple of weeks!
There is also Jersey Boys (60's music) or Let it Be (Beatles).
Then we have Thriller (Michael Jackson) - haven't seen this one but it has been running a while, which is normally a good sign!
One of the newest is Viva Forever (Spice Girls) - I haven't heard good things about this one but I will have a first hand report in a couple of weeks.
Some of the old ones you may know more than you think - Phantom, Les Mis, Singing in the Rain, Lion King.
War Horse isn't a musical as such, but IMO well worth going to see.
You can sometimes get a good deal on tickets at Lastminute.com - I have made lots of bookings through here and although you sometimes don't know where you are going to sit, I haven't been let down yet.
Whatever you decide to see, I hope you have a good evening.
