Often it is the musicals in London’s Theatreland that steal the limelight, but at any time of year an impressive list of “serious” productions fill many of the theatres of the West End. London plays often feature some very big star names.
Stars in London Plays
It is not uncommon for Holywood actors to come across the pond to appear in one of our world famous London plays! In our recent theatre survey, a star name appearing in a show was found to be a major factor when we decide to see a show. Great examples of this came last year with Nicole Kidman in Photograph 51, Bradley Cooper in Elephant Man and our own Benedict Bumberbatch in Hamlet!
