I'm heading over November 21-27. I'll probably only have time to see two shows, though. I'd really like to see a straight play, but nothing is catching my eye on that front. So I'm thinking of Parade and Evita. Does anyone have any thoughts regarding either those shows or anything else that's a "can't miss"?

'Evita' closed in May and 'Parade' closes the weekend you are over!

Go and See 'all about my mother' @ Old Vic. It is just fab. really moving, very filmic, and generally a refreshing change to everyhthing else on the West End at the moment. Think you can still get the 25 web offer if you call box office directly, 0870 060 6628.

Def worth catching before it closes.

I would advise you to see Mary Poppins before it should close... if you haven't seen it yet !

I highly recomend 'All About My Mother' but it closes the same day as 'Parade in 3 weeks.

Dame Diana is perfect for the part. She has said many times in the last few months that its the best time she's had on a stage for a long time. She looks stunning as does the whole show.
