Adelphi (x2 - 1 show)
Gielgud
Her Majesty's
Palladium
Novello (x2 - 2 shows)
Queen's
Haymarket

Unfortunately haven't got a West End full set, the show is the lure not the theatre, but it does make it more special seeing a show, in a theatre you haven't been to before.

Shouldn't we substitute the Royal Opera House for the Royal Court?
