The Lovetheatre Ticket Service offer of dinner and the show is a sham. The offer appeared to good to be true and it was. Instead of buying the 79. tickets, for 78. I could get the dinner included. I checked the restaurant and it received very good reviews. The seat for this deal was in the middle of the orchestra... More

This was one of the most remarkable plays I have ever seen. I had read the book, which I loved, and wondered how they could ever translate it onto the stage. They did so brilliantly. The set is probably the most high-tech and amazingly effective I have ever seen. This play won 5 Emmys in New York, including Best Play... More

Book Of Mormon ~ hilarious! I couldn't visit London without taking in a show. The best of the best, like Broadway.

I highly recommend going to "Mamma Mia!" - the musical at Novello Theatre in West End Theater District. "If you are looking for the best night out in town, you`ve just found it!" according to "Talk Radio". This is to say the least about this show! Outstanding choreography, amazing voices, all in one a brilliant production!

We went to different productions and theaters 5 nights in a row! Buying the tickets, day of is so smart! Saves a ton of travel money & sometimes you could end up in one of the Very Special Box Seats (4-6 people). Just don't forget to ask. We did better going straight to each theatre's box office, a few hours... More

I LOVE Broadway, but the West End theatres are so much prettier, the shows (almost) as good and the ticket prices are cheaper. We saw 'Gypsy' (with Imelda Staunton), 'Miss Saigon' and 'The Commitments' this trip and had a great time!

I recently attended the new production of Miss Saigon at the Prince Edward Theater in the West End. Having seen the original production several times, including the original cast on Broadway, I have to say that this production was among the finest if not the finest I have seen. It is my understanding that it may be moved to Broadway... More

Staying in Soho

Neighborhood Profile
Soho
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighborhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
