Everyone loves a good musical. If you also enjoy the theatre, then you'll appreciate the various musicals currently available on stage now, especially with cheap London theatre tickets from ticket.com.
The theatre is undoubtedly the best way to experience a musical. Whilst the cinema can be pleasant enough, there is a certain something that is lost from watching a pre-recorded musical. In the theatre, however, it’s all live. Watching the performance passionately displayed, sang and danced right in front of your eyes provides a much more energetic and engaging experience.
With a range of musicals available at the theatre now, there's never been a better time to see an old favourite, or try something new. If you’re passionate about musicals, or the theatre as a whole, you should consider a trip to the theatre in London. With tickets from ticket.com, there are plenty of options awaiting you.
Of course, musicals are suitable for all ages. Even in the theatre, there are plenty of musicals that can please both adults and young audiences alike.
For instance, the current production of ‘Shrek: The Musical’ will naturally draw younger audiences, adapting the films to a lively musical production that captivates and entertains younger children with its light humour, colourful characters and various musical pieces that the films are known for.
Likewise, ‘Matilda’ revisits the children’s novel by Roald Dahl, although it is also known from the 1996 movie adaption. A fantastic story, the stage adaption takes the magical and wonderful tale and brings it to life in a way only a musical can. A unique spin on a popular story, ‘Matilda’ is set to entertain children and adults of all ages, whether you've read the original book or not.
If you're looking for something British or closer to home, there are also a couple of British drama productions available.
First of all is the world famous ‘Billy Elliot’. Based on the British drama film, the musical focuses on the dance side of the story, bringing the gritty conflicts of the UK miner's strike to life. A classic hit, ‘Billy Elliot’ has been shown in various countries across the world. It’s in the UK again, so now's your chance to see what all the hype is about.
Likewise, the classic Willy Russell musical ‘Blood Brothers’ is also available. Set in 1960's Liverpool, the production covers various themes such as poverty and the class division. At its heart, it’s a tale of two twins separated at birth. Over thirty years old, the show still proves popular whenever it is performed on stage.
To summarise, there are plenty of musicals available at the theatre today. Whether you want a light hearted family film, or a gritty drama, the sheer range of musicals ensures that there is something to suit your tastes. If you plan to be in London anytime soon, stopping by the theatre for a musical is a great way to spend the night
