The West End shows generally include:

Musicals such as The Lion King, Rock of Ages, Singin’ in the Rain and Phantom of the Opera. Musicals are well-liked simply because of their  use of songs to tell a tale. I think it is the extravagance of a musical – the dancing the orchestra the sets and the stars. Much more lately, the recognition of musicals could be because of to the publicity from Television auditions to cast stars for musicals – liek The Wizard of Oz, the   Sound of Music and Jesus Christ Superstar.

Plays such as The Mousetrap,  The Sunshine Boys and The Woman In Black. People just love to go to the theatre to watch a thrilling whodunit mystery, or to be intrigued by tales beyond there day to day lives.
