Top London Shows - May 2013
This month’s top twelve West End shows reflect the productions our customers loved best during April. It’s great to see such a wide variety of shows hitting the mark, revealing the very best London’s West End has to offer. The Olivier Awards this week highlighted the sheer quality of theatreland’s legendary stage magic, hailed as being the best it has been for decades, perhaps the best it has ever been. If you needed an excuse to book tickets for a smash hit show in one of the most beautiful cities on earth, here it is!
Up from number two in April, Top Hat’s extension ‘til April 2014 continues to have an impressive impact, with all those who thought they’d missed the boat buying their tickets and flocking to enjoy this gloriously sophisticated piece of classic Irving Berlin eye candy.

It’s spring, and love is in the air. Perhaps that’s why The Bodyguard has leapt into our chart from nowhere to hit the number three spot. Or maybe it’s because of our extremely popular 35% off flash sale, which boosted the show’s popularity throughout April. Either way it’s both unforgettable and un-missable.

Up one from April’s number five slot, We Will Rock You continues to deliver plenty of thrills and magic for fans of rock music and quirky comedy alike. Right now it’s on stage ‘til October, but you never know… it’s such an enduring hit that an extension might be in the wind. Watch this space!
We Will Rock You Tickets
Fresh in at number five, our 48 hour flash sale earlier in April offering 20% off ticket prices has had a big impact. Written in 1997 when Alan Bennett thought he only had a year to live, the play covers two intimate and personal autobiographical recollections, performed to perfection by the extremely talented Alex Jennings. Not to be missed.
Untold Stories Tickets
Part of the wonderful Michael Grandage season, Henry 5th has struck a chord, leaping into our chart at number six. Tickets are also available for The Cripple of Inishmaan with Daniel Radcliffe and A Midsummer Nights Dream with Sheridan Smith and David Walliams, the 3rd and 4th in the season.

Another newcomer to our chart at number seven, this spectacular show broke all records as the longest running musical in New York theatre history, winning nine Tonys, 7 Drama Desk Awards, the New York Critic Circle Award and even a Pulitzer Prize for Drama. Wow.

The anticipation is almost palpable as the magical Derren Brown’s new show waits in the wings to take over from Singin’ in the Rain at the Palace Theatre. Like all his shows, you can expect something truly remarkable, and it’s already at number 8 in our chart.
