Hi everyone. I am going to be in London in August and have already booked two of my three shows - The Bodyguard and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. I need to book one more show - which should I choose: The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night, The Commitments, or Thriller. My husband loves musicals but if Curious is exceptional, I will suggest that one to him. Also, please give me recommendations for dining in the threatre district. Thank you for your help.

You really do not have to order those tickets in advance. They are at the UK TKS booth pretty regularly. Check this link to see how regularly the shows are on.

We don't know how Curious will look at its new home and cast. But, I saw it last September at its prior home and it is exceptional. I don't know how tickets are selling for August, but if you are looking only for one ticket, you may not have trouble. (But, there is going to be a Broadway incarnation shortly if that influences you on seeing it in London).
If your husband loves musicals, you should keep an eye out for what's on at the Union, Menier and Southwark in August. And there's a new show that just opened at the Prince Edward written by the guys who wrote Les Mis. People seem to like it very much.

Avoid Thriller, its really not a great show. Its popular with tourists but it really shouldn't be.

Agreed with Thriller, although a real shame about Michael Jackson dying, as we wouldn't be still lumbered with this show.

Thank you so much for the theatre suggestions. I will see what will be playing at those theatres. I did love Les Miz so that sounds particularly exciting.
If you have any restaurant suggestions nearby, please let me know!!!

Candice Malkin - the "new" show I was referring to is "Miss Saigon".

Miss Saigon is a wonderful show. I have seen it a few times so I think I will stick with something new for me. It was a wonderful suggestion and I highly recommend it to anyone who hasn't seen it. Bring a lot of tissues!!!!
