Shows To See This Summer

We're in the midst of the summer now and with countless choice of shows to see we've picked 5 shows we recommend the most.

Amelie - UK Tour and West End
The stage musical adaptation of the popular 2001 French musical, Amelie, is touring across the UK. The charming tale of Amelie Poulain, a shy dreamer, who by chance meets Nino Quincampoix is stunningly performed by a cast of actor-musicians. In my recent review of the show, I described it as "musical theatre perfection". Audrey Brisson is spectacular in the title role.

The Merry Wives of Windsor - Shakespeare's Globe
For your, Shakespeare fix in London this summer turn to Shakespeare's Globe. Their always excellent productions are well worth checking out, especially with tickets in the yard still only £5 each. The jewel in the Globe's crown this summer is a hilarious production of The Merry Wives of Windsor. Elle White's production takes influences from the 1930's music, dance and fashion. This is the Globe at it's best and the leading performance by Pearce Quigley as Sir John Falstaff proves once again why is he a master of comedy.

The Merry Wives of Windsor runs at Shakespeare's Globe until October 12th, for details click here.

Six - Arts Theatre
A huge smash hit, Six the Musical, continues to play to sell-out audiences at London's Arts Theatre. A concert-style musical tells the story of Henry VIII's six wives from their perspective. A tremendous score by Lucy Moss and Toby Marlow drives the show and a hugely talented cast make this one of the biggest hits on the West End at the minute.

Come From Away - Phoenix Theatre
Telling the remarkable true story of the Canadian town which opened its doors to stranded plane passengers in the wake of the 9/11 terrorist attack, Come From Away, is one of the best shows to EVER hit the West End in my opinion. This stunningly powerful musical HAS to be seen. The message of kindness is so important and relevant. The cast of 12 and the live musicians are magnificent. Unmissable.
