Hi, we will be in London in late June/ early July. My 14-year-old daughter is a musical theatre enthusiast and we've seen a lot on Broadway. Her current favorite is Hadestown. Looking for recommendations! (Also open to straight plays in addition to musicals.) Wondering about Six, Jamie, ... what else should we consider and what would you recommend? Is Mousetrap worthwhile? I remember the movie.

Thanks in advance for any info!

Jamie and Six are very good calls, especially for such a young teenager, and there will also be a truly excellent revival of Jesus Christ Superstar at the Barbican. Personally I'd try to catch The Light in the Piazza if you want to go for something more classic and romantic, or Waitress if you haven't already seen it on Broadway. I'd give a hard pass to Mousetrap - it's really not worthy it - but if you really want to see a long-running play The Woman in Black is a triumph of stage craft.
