Here at Theatre Breaks Central we are looking forward to our summer break next week and almost halfway through August the trends that were set in July are continuing on a pace.
Having discovered that Jersey Boys was the favourite London show for a theatre break in July it has kept its top spot in August too. And obviously London theatre-goers are up for a good time because We Will Rock You is second. After the week that we have had in London, I think that is a good sign!
Family favourites and good-time shows are what dominate the rest of the list.
The Wizard of Oz, Disney’s The Lion King, Mamma Mia!, Legally Blonde and Billy Elliot rub shoulders with a spectral pair in the form of Phantom of the Opera and Ghost – The Musical!
Finally Strictly Come Dancing fans keep Flavia and Vincent in the top ten with Midnight Tango.
We Will Rock You
The Lion King
The Phantom of the Opera
The Wizard of Oz
Ghost The Musical
Mention should go there to Legally Blonde – first time in the top ten as a London show. It is doing great guns in Edinburgh as I have mentioned before but as a good-time London show it is obviously a popular choice – plus there are some good deals to be had too in the Family London Musicals Packages we are running – as there are for Jersey Boys and Billy Elliot.
Also a quick mention for Ghost – the only show to make it into our list and the Telegraph’s London theatre list. Richard III, Anne Boleyn, Journey’s End and Beauty Queen of Leenane were the other 4 in their top 5: I think ours are more fun though!
