Top London Shows - March 2015
Mad March hares, primroses in the woods, gales and showers... it's a typical British March and we're joining in with the excitement. This month's March Madness campaign means we're making all sorts of brilliant special offers, with discounted theatre tickets for some of the best-loved shows in the city. Here's our top 12 shows chart for March 2015. If you fancy taking in any of these marvellous productions, you can save yourself lots of quids when you buy your tickets through us.
Last month's number two, this time around the strange adventures and fascinating inner emotional landscape of the story's hero, Christopher, grabs the number one slot. Based on Mark Haddon’s award-winning novel, adapted by Simon Stephens and directed by Marianne Elliott, the Evening Standard calls it, “A beautiful, eloquent, dazzlingly inventive show about the wonders of life.” Don't miss it!
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time Tickets
no booking fees! Exchanging places with our number one, this hilarious comedy sees the desperately untalented and deeply chaotic Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society attempting to produce a 1920s murder mystery, having come into a handy sum of cash. But nothing goes smoothly and the group staggers from disaster to disaster in a painfully funny effort to reach the final curtain call. Do the accident-prone amateurs manage it? Find out for less with our special March Madness offer.
The Play That Goes Wrong Tickets
no booking fees - This is one of those shows that pops in and out of our top 12 chart like a Jack-in-the-box. It has oodles of staying power, particularly popular with teenagers. This is the mysterious untold story of the famous Witches of Oz, a hugely entertaining production with music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz. It's based on the 1995 Gregory Maguire novel, Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West, and we have lots of 'no booking fee' seats waiting for you...
tickets up to 43% off – Last month's number ten, Roddy Doyle's deliciously real and dysfunctional characters are still making audiences laugh out loud every night. Grab tickets now and you'll save as much as 43% off the face value, a brilliant bargain. The show is stuffed with classic soul tunes, beautifully sung, and the quirky, heart-warming plot delivers exactly the right amount of famous Irish craic. A super show and a laugh a minute.
The Commitments Tickets
our show of the month with tickets from £15 – You're in the mood for a top class jukebox musical. Try this one for size, the epic story of one of Britain's most successful 1960s bands, The Kinks, who were fronted by the supremely talented Ray Davies and took the charts by storm on both sides of the Atlantic. The band's tunes are performed to perfection, so well it's just like having the real deal on stage in front of you. Dance in the aisles? You'll find it hard to resist, especially with seats from just £15 throughout March.
Sunny Afternoon Tickets
went on sale on 23 February – If you laughed your way through the 2003 movie of the same name, you'll love this beautifully silly musical inspired by the film. The score is by Matthew Sklar and Chad Beguelin. And the book of the show is adapted from the film by Bob Martin and Thomas Meehan. The result is a splendid affair and hilarious too, the story of Buddy, an orphan boy who mistakenly crawls into Santa's bag of gifts and ends up at the North Pole. It might not be Christmas in reality, but it's always the festive season in your heart...
tickets up to 41% off – It's still going strong. Thousands of people are still flocking to see this remarkable jukebox musical with its endless parade of smash hits from one of pop music's greatest legends. Now, at as much as 41% off face value, seats are more affordable than ever. If you have a special occasion coming up, why not grab a bunch of tickets and spend an evening chez Michael Jackson, performed so beautifully you'll be forgiven for thinking the star himself has magically returned to the stage?
Thriller - Live Tickets
tickets up to 31% off – Now's the perfect time to catch a musical that has delighted more than 54 million theatregoers so far with its romantic plot, excellent acting and, of course, bucketloads of Abba hits, guaranteed to make you smile. The musical includes smash chart hits Super Trouper, Lay All Your Love on Me, Dancing Queen, Knowing Me, Knowing You, Take a Chance on Me, Thank You for the Music and loads more, including the title track itself. And with up to 31% off tickets, it's a steal.
Mamma Mia Tickets
tickets up to 43% off – Memphis is a fabulous musical with lyrics by David Bryan and Joe DiPietro, music by David Bryan and a book, also by Joe DiPietro. It's inspired by the true life and times of the Memphis DJ Dewey Phillips, who in the 1950s was amongst the first white DJs to play 'black' music on the radio. The production won four Tony Awards in 2010 including Best Musical, and it's studded with gorgeous tunes including Underground, The Music of My Soul and Scratch My Itch.
up to 41% throughout March – Last month's number four, the Phantom takes a wee nosedive this time but retains a number ten place. It's another of those shows that we see coming in and out of our chart as regular as clockwork, and this month we're offering a much as 41% off seats. If you're one of the few people who haven't been caught up in the sheer drama of this classic tale, you owe yourself a theatreland treat. Go see what everyone's been talking about for so long!
Phantom of the Opera Tickets
You love nothing better than having your heart strings tugged. Miss Saigon is your next West End show, a beautiful musical by Claude-Michel Schönberg and Alain Boublil, with lyrics by Boublil and Richard Maltby. Giacomo Puccini's lovely opera, Madame Butterfly, lies at the heart of the plot, brought up to date and set in the 1960s. It weaves the story of a doomed romance between a Vietnamese woman and her GI lover, an epic tragedy that'll break your heart.
Miss Saigon Tickets
tickets up to 66% off – If you fancy a full 100 minutes of hilarious, harum-scarum action the 39 Steps is your next theatrical stop, and we're offering seats for as much as 66% off throughout March. This is a genuinely ingenious production with just four actors playing a remarkable 139 roles. Despite the silliness, it remains a gripping whodunit. Alfred Hitchcock, who made the movie version in 1935, would probably laugh his socks off. So will you.
The 39 Steps Tickets
What's coming up? Tickets for Kinky Boots, the winner of an astonishing 6 Tony awards, have just gone on sale and we're expecting the show to steam into our April top 12 theatre shows chart next time.
