Sweet Charity

Having been a sell-out hit at London's Menier Chocolate Factory last year, the West End transfer of Sweet Charity is sure to be a big success at the Theatre Royal Haymarket when it opens on 23 April. With Tamzin Outhwaite playing the title role, this feel-good London musical is packed with classic hits like Hey, Big Spender. Based on the book by Neil Simon, the musical follows the romantic misadventures of the gullible Charity Hope Valentine, who always gives her heart to the wrong man.

The Fabulous Flutterbys

The Fantasticks

A brand new production of a musical classic is coming soon to London. The Fantasticks first opened in New York in 1960, and with an incredible 42-year run it is the longest running musical in history.

The musical will open at London's Duchess Theatre on 24 May.

Into the Woods

London's magical Open Air Theatre in Regent's Park will host an intriguing musical from 5 August.
