Listing of West End Shows?#1
Posted: 7/6/08 at 4:45pm
I'm contemplating going to the West End next year so that I can see shows AND see the Jane Austen and Bronte houses. I usually go to NYC but would really like to see the literary sites in Britain.

Are there any sites that list West End shows so I can see what sort of things are playing?

If I were to post the best site for what's on stage in the West End this thread may get deleted, as it's not this site. I'll PM you.

If you want to see the literary houses you need to distinguish whether you want to see the places the authors knew and took as their inspiration or the places that were used in the films, as they are quite often different.

I live fairly close to Haworth where the Bronte sisters lived and have done the trek to Top Withens (the inspiration for Wuthering Heights) a number of times.

"I can picture a wind swept Scripps here!"

It's an hour-and-a-half's walk from the nearest road and when you get there there's a ruined house, a dying tree and no cocktail bar in site.
