4 - Mamma Mia
5 - Footloose (enjoyed it far more than I thought I would)
6 - Woman in Black
7 - Phantom

If you had asked this last week, my number 1 would most certainly have been "SITPWG". But, here's my list of West End shows that are currently playing:

1. Billy Elliot
2. Wicked
3. Avenue Q
4. Chicago
5. Les Mis
6. Blood Brothers
7. Evita
8. The Producers
9. Phantom
10. Guys & Dolls

(I've not included Spamalot as I have not seen it yet. Similarly with Cabaret but - if this turns out to be a bright new interpretation it will probably shoot right to the top of my list as "Cabaret" is one of the true masterpieces of musical theatre writing.)
THEATRE 2019: ASPECTS OF LOVE**** FRANKENSTEIN (Paris)**** AN ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE**** COMPANY***** [title of show]**** CAN CAN*** THE CEREAL CAFE**** BAD GIRLS**** RAGS***** LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE***** FOLLIES***** ROMANCE ROMANCE**** THE MARVELOUS WONDERETTES*** LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE***** QUEEN OF THE MIST**** SIX** THE PRICE***** MAGGIE MAY **** CALENDAR GIRLS** MAN OF LA MANCHA**** WAITRESS***** FANNY AND STELLA***
