5 West End Shows I Would Like To See*

When I went to see my first west end show in November 2016, which was Wicked, I felt such a buzz afterwards. I completely fell in love with the feeling it gave me and the atmosphere was amazing. Now I've been to see one show, it's made me want to go and see so many more! There are 5 I would really like to see so I thought I would write about them and hopefully get some opinions from others on what else I should see. I would love to know if you've seen anything on the west end and what you recommend!

The Curious Case Of The Dog In The Nighttime 

Last year we were trying to decide on what the first show would be that we would see in London and I was really keen on this one. We went with Wicked in the end which I don't regret at all but I would still really like to see this one day. It's about a boy who finds a dead dog at night and how he tries to work out who did it. He is brilliant at maths but doesn't do very well with day to day things and doesn't trust many people so it's all about his journey to figure out who the murderer is and it ends up turning his life upside down. The story is definitely out there and so different from anything else on the West End but I love things like that are unique and this has had brilliant reviews. I think this ends in Summer so it's unlikely I'll see it before then but hopefully one day.

Les Miserables 

I don't really know anything about this show and I haven't seen the film either but it's always been on my list and one I've always thought would be a must see. 'Set against the backdrop of 19th-century France, Les Miserables tells an enthralling story of broken dreams and unrequited love, passion, sacrifice and redemption - a timeless testament to the survival of the human spirit.' I just think it sounds so interesting and probably quite emotional. I've heard a few of the songs and I just think they'd be amazing to hear live.

School of Rock 

This is one of those films that I always go ages without watching, and it's definitely not one of my favourite ever but I do always enjoy it and I think it's one that would be brilliant to see on stage. I remember first watching the film when I was younger so I would love to see it sort of come to life on stage. It's still quite new to the west end and it's had really good reviews so this is one I would love to see soon.

Mamma Mia 

After watching the film again last week, it's made me want to go and see the show so much! This is one of the classic musicals thats been popular for a long time now and I would love to go and see it one day. You don't have to be the biggest fan of Abba for this but you can still enjoy all the songs and the story of it all. This is quite high on my list.

Beautiful the Carole King Musical 

This is one I only heard of about a month ago and it seems quite different to the others but one I would really like to see. It's about Carole King, a music legend who sold her first hit as a teenager. By the time she was 20, she was writing songs for loads of people like Aretha Franklin and the Monkees, though she always wanted to be in the spotlight and find her own voice. When I watched the trailer for this, I was surprised at how many of the songs I actually recognised and I'm sure most people would be. This isn't one of those musicals I've seen advertised a lot or really knew anything about but I think the story sounds really interesting and I'd love to see how it all plays out.

Regardless of what we go to see next, I'll be booking way in advance! I always like to book early, get good seats and get the best deal possible. I booked a few months in advance both times I went to see Wicked, and both times we had excellent seats. There are so many websites now where you can book tickets for west end shows but one I want to mention is They provide a secure online booking system for theatre tickets, theatre breaks, west end musicals, plays, ballet and opera. Anything you're interested in, you can find tickets for on there. You can get tickets for all of the shows I've mentioned in this post but there are so many others too like, The Lion King, Phantom Of The Opera, Wicked, Matilda and Billy Elliot just to name a few.
So that's the five shows I would really like to see on the west end at some point. Have you seen any of them? If you have, what did you think? I would love to hear what other peoples favourite shows are or just what they would like to see in the future!
