West End shows to see with friends

9 to 59 to 5

Trade the meeting rooms for the auditorium and book your tickets for 9 to 5, set to be a West End sensation when it opens at the Savoy Theatre in early 2019. Based on the 1980 film that catapulted Dolly Parton into the spotlight, follow the stories of Violet, Doralee and Judy, three co-workers at Consolidated Industries who are tired of how their boss behaves. Audience members of any age are guaranteed to recognise one of the leading castmembers, from Love Island’s Amber Davies and musical theatre stalwart Bonnie Langford. If you’re looking for a show to cure your Winter blues, let 9 to 5 be the antidote.

Les Misérables

Les Mis

If you’ve ever had a musical theatre sing song with your friends, it’s likely that one of you sang a song from Les Misérables. Hear the people sing once and for all at the longest running musical in the West End and see Jean Valjean change from chain-gang convict into a new man, joining in with the barricades of revolutionary France. Get up close to the fight for freedom and liberty and feel as though you’re standing side by side with Marius, Cosette and all the characters in a legendary production with songs including “I Dreamed a Dream” and “A Heart Full of Love”. “At the End of the Day”, you don’t want to miss out on your chance to see this production in its final few months at the Queen’s Theatre, before transferring to the Gielgud Theatre.
