Top Ten Theatre Breaks Openings in London

So this week our Theatre Breaks Top 10 is the top ten new openings in London’s West End.

And a wide and varied bunch it is. I won’t go into too much detail – you can follow the links – and it is very easy to be rude or complimentary about shows that haven’t opened yet.

So we can either sit back and see what happens or follow the link, find out more and book a discounted preview (where they exist) and feel the warmth of being one of the first to see a show – whether it is good or bad, that adventurer gene in all of our bodies will thank you for getting a bit of exercise.

And remember if you do see a show come back and tell us all about it on our new Theatre Reviews page.
