Question about shows in London#1
Posted: 10/23/07 at 3:41pm
I might be going to Europe over the summer with a choir to tour in England, France, and Germany and perform for people. In the pamphlet it says there is a day that we can spend doing pretty much whatever we want in London, and I was just wondering:
When are the matinees for shows in London?
What time are the shows?
What days of the weeks are there performances?
Thank you for your help.

Most shows perform Monday to Saturday Evening with Matinees on Saturday and a midweek day (Tuesday, Wednesay or Thursday).

Some shows have an early evening and late evening performance on Friday (e.g. 5PM and 8.30).

It really depends what you want to see. I recommend looking at theatremonkey.com for show times and prices. By the summer of course some shows will have closed.

I hope that helps.

Go to most West End theatre websites and you'll get a good run down of whats on at what time. In London your lucky to have matinees on different days unlike Broadway where the matinees are strictly on a Weds at 3pm. Thats something ive never ever understood- it takes the choice away from the audience straight away!?!? Its only since The Lion King opened on Broadway that they changed the Sunday performance times, up until then they were always at 3pm!

The Hard Rock is a mere 10/15 min stroll up Piccadilly and your there in the heart of Theatreland. If its raining !!!!! you'll have lots of buses to take you. A good tip if you plan on useing the undeground trains (The Tube) and buses every day, your best bet is to buy a 3 day Travelcard 16.80 ($30) This gives you 100% unlimited travel 24hrs a day for the 3 days you buy it for. Get them at any tube station ticket office.

What shows do u reccomend? I know that shows close and things, but what would you say is a really good show to see? I really want to see We Will Rock You but I have NO idea if that's out anymore.
