Ho hum, Valentine’s Day is here again! Is it a day to celebrate love or is it is just a marketing construct, whatever way you want to look at it, Valentine’s Day isn’t going anywhere.
Whether you’re having a date with your partner this weekend, celebrating Galentines or simply ignoring the whole event I have collated a list of shows which will fit you perfectly.
For The Lovers
Chocolates and flowers are so last year (right?), why not gift that special someone in your life with tickets to these romantic shows;
Les Misèrables – A musical so big that it will sweep anyone off their feet, Les Miserables celebrates all kinds of love. The perfect treat for the musical fan in your life!
Phantom Of The Opera – Even bigger than Les Miserables, The Phantom of the Opera is there to wow. With music and costumes that are sure to set your hearts racing, The Phantom of the Opera is the perfect Valentine’s weekend treat!
The Lion King – Who doesn’t love the Lion King?! With a score by the master of the piano himself, Elton John, enjoy hits like “Can You Feel The Love Tonight” during the most romantic weekend, ever!
With The Girls
Who needs a date For Valentine’s anyway! All you need are your squad a group booking to these sisterly extravaganzas.
Waitress – Currently in previews, Waitress is a tale about a woman making it on her own, with a little help from her two besties. With songs that will bring tears to your eyes, pop that prosecco and have a night out with the girls!
Wicked – Making waves back in 2003 for being the first musical of its kind to pass the bechtel test, Wicked is the ultimate Feminist musical. Grab your sisters and return to Oz!
9 to 5 – Fresh onto the West End, 9 to 5 is all about showing the men who’s boss. With Love Island star Amber Davies in the lead 9 to 5 ticks all the right boxes.
SIX – What better way to say Eff You to Valentine’s day than with six Queens! Telling Henry VIII where to shove it SIX is the girl gang musical of the century!
For the Anti-Valentine’s
To you this this just another day/weekend. You’re here for just some good shows.
Pinter Seven – Immensely dark, and about as far away from Valentine’s day as you can get Pinter 7 – A Slight Ache/A Dumb Waiter leaves you on the edge of your seat. Starring Danny Dyer and Martin Freeman this is one play you won’t want to miss.
The Price – Having just opened this week, The Price is getting all sorts of love. Starring David Suchet and Brendan Coyle don’t miss your chance to see Arthur Miller’s lesser known gem. Full of family and money strife this is one play that will wet your anti-valentine’s heart.
Whatever you’re doing this Valentine’s weekend I hope that it’s a good one!
Till next time,
