Your 5 Must-See Theatre Shows of This Summer
Theatre is making a comeback. No longer is it an activity reserved solely for rich people in tuxedos and fancy dresses. With exceptional prices and seriously exciting shows, we’re seeing more and more folks from all walks of life head to the theatre.
And rightly so! The theatre is a fantastic night out and we reckon you deserve a little bit of time away from the computer doing essays (on Netflix) and a little bit more time soaking up some culture.
We’ve teamed up with ATG Tickets to offer you an amazing students-only offer. Check between 12 to 3pm on the day to grab some incredible last-minute West End theatre seats for just £16!
Here are our must-see shows to check out this summer:
This fun and classic musical tells the bittersweet story of Fanny, whose vocal talents and comedic ability see her rise from Brooklyn music hall singer to Broadway star. The fabulous Sheridan Smith stars as the lead role and of course, absolutely kills it and nobody's gonna rain on her parade. Ahem. Sorry.
If it’s something a bit more serious you’re after, then this electrifying version of George Orwell’s classic dystopian novel is the politically adventurous show for you.
THE WOMAN IN BLACK
Stephen Mallatratt’s fantastically chilling version of Susan Hill’s classic ghost story comes dramatically alive on stage at The Fortune Theatre. If you’re looking for a truly terrifying theatrical experience that will make you get chills down your spine and keep you on the edge of your seat all night, then check this one out.
GUYS AND DOLLS
