Come From Away

OK, the premise isn't the cheeriest, but this musical is surprisingly uplifting. It shows how the generous inhabitants of a small town in Newfoundland invited plane passengers ­- stranded on 9/11 - into their hearts and homes. At a time of global strife and conflict, it's a welcome reminder of the very best of humanity.

Wicked

Another Stephen Schwartz show, this retelling of the Oz story from the Wicked Witch's perspective speaks to many who feel judged, isolated, or misunderstood. Though it features plenty of adventure and romance, it's perhaps most remarkable for its portrayal of female friendship: two people overcoming their differences to enrich one another's lives.

City of Angels

This is stylish escapism at its finest. Many people got the blues when they couldn't land tickets when it was at the Donmar Warehouse, and now they finally have the chance with the belated West End transfer! Josie Rourke's love letter to old Hollywood and film noir features a tantalising cast, too - including Hadley Fraser, Rosalie Craig, Theo James, and Vanessa Williams.
