West end trip recommendations? #1
Posted: 3/22/19 at 9:30pm
Im coming back to London next week for a theatre trip. Im hoping to see Company again before it closes and I just got a ticket tonight for A German Life on April 11. I saw tickets released for later dates earlier in the week, so if youre looking for tickets its worth it to keep checking.

Also on my list are 9 to 5, Come From Away, Six, The Twilight Zone, All About Eve, Jesus Hopped the A Train, and Tartuffe. Any other recommendations of must sees right now are appreciated. Ive seen all of the longer running shows on the west end, but would also like to know if theres any longer running off west end stuff I maybe never heard about.

Also, non theatre related things to do in London right now are much also welcome. Ive done so many things there, I dont have many ideas left to fill my days.

Jamie Lloyd's revival of Betrayal with Tom Hiddleston, Follies at the National, All My Sons with Sally Field at the Old Vic, and another Miller's play The Price. Next Sunday Jason Robert Brown will be in conversation at the Haymarket with a few West End actors performing some songs. As for the off-west end, personally I'm really looking forward to seeing Cry Havoc at the Park Theatre in Finsbury.

Thought All About Eve was a mediocre waste of time. Loved Jesus Hopped A Train- Tina- Come From Away- and like you- Company. Hear great things about Six- not fond of Arthur Miller plays but would love to see Sally. Took a tour of Royal Opera House- really good and Strawberry Walking tours- free and wonderful. Also went to a session of Parliament- very interesting - and free.

Thanks so much! I ended up seeing the Jason Robert Brown concert and I LOVE Carrie Fletcher so that was great and Iím definitely going to check out a parliament session soon. Planning to skip all about Eve now. I heard mostly terrible things from a few folks I met at shows. I also got to see company two more times, including the final show.

Six, Come from Away and the new revival of Fiddler (only sit in the Orchestra though or you'll miss some of the best parts of the production) are currently the 3 must see things in town x

Twilight Zone is extremely average and not really worth seeing.

I didn't hate Eve, but it was certainly disappointing.

A-Train was better in hindsight than it actually was to sit through, but ultimately not that mind-blowing.

Sweat which wasn't on your list is also fantastic.
