“Valentines Day” – to the romantically challenged, these are probably two of the most scariest words you’ll hear this winter.
You are told – oh anything will do! But beware: apparently a kettle with a rose in it does not count (even if the old one is broken).
But of course a trip to the theatre in London might just be the perfect solution?
Valentine’s Day is on a Saturday this year so you can either just get away for the evening or really push the boat out and enjoy a weekend theatre break
Well a night out at the theatre is a lovely thing to do anyway, so it doesn’t really matter what you see. But if here are some special shows that we think will be the perfect fit for you Valentine Theatre breaks.
Check above for theatre breaks still available, but here is a list of shows that would be perfect for a romantic city break.
Miss Saigon. It’s like the film, it’s all about a girl who “will always love…” her bodyguard! whilst singing Whitney Houston power ballads. Perfect really! Stars Beverley Knight
Once – The hit romantic movie has come to the London stage. An Irish musician and an imigrant single mum fall in love through their love of music.
Shakespeare in Love – yes it’s back, and do you know why? Because no-one puts baby in a corner, but they do put her in the Piccadilly Theatre, London for a very special run.
Mamma Mia! Lots of fun. The old ABBA hit factory churns out the songs as Donna looks for her real dad on the eve of her wedding.
Phantom of the Opera. Beautiful music – the most famous night out at the theatre.
Note: If you don’t want to go for a romantic show but just want to see one of the best shows in town, then my top three are Jersey Boys, Billy Elliot and Wicked. Sometimes you can just hove too much lovin’
This year, for the first time, you can book a theatre break to New York for Valentine’s day through our sister site. Once, Phantom, Chicago, Motown and Disney’s Newsies and The Lion King are all included and you can also book a romantic cruise round the harbour… or maybe a Sex and the City bus tour!?
