Top West End Shows for Olympic Tourists

From a smart schoolgirl, heroine to a miner's son who would not love to dance? It is something that would appeal to all ages. From a dark musical about baking people in pies to choreographed life-sized puppets about World War I, they appeal to all people. From a musical drama about a popular band in the fifties to an updated comedy about "A Servant to Two Masters," they appeal to several genres. After a day viewing the Olympics, the best way to end the night is to book a show at the Box Office and view an exciting West End show.


imageMatilda the Musical is based on the Roald Dahl’s character, about a brainy girl who is trying to triumph over her oppressive school teachers. Within the cast of characters is even an ex-Olympian called Miss Trunchbull. The story is delightful for children and their parents. Another child hero emerges in Billy Elliot the Musical. The story is about a boy who tries to overcome stereotypes by expressing himself as an "effeminate" dancer in a small mining town full of staunch, masculine, beer-drinking men.

imageSweeney Todd is a dark and exhilarating story about a man who kills people in his barber shop and bakes them into pies in the basement oven. Although nightmarish is its content, the characters are still intriguing and will leave the show-goer on the edge of their seats. War Horse is a story about a teen-age boy who signs up for the war to find Joey, his beloved horse. What makes this musical magical and spell-binding is the life-size puppets that are choreographed into an amazing spectacle which is enchanting to behold.

imageJersey Boys is a story about Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, and includes all of the bands’ most popular songs. With classic songs that have already turned to hits, a musical about the band's history has become one of the biggest hits on the stage. Another old hit turned modern is One Man, Two Guvnors. The story is a modern adaptation of "A Servant to Two Masters" and is an uproarious hit that is sure to please all audiences.
