The Winter’s Tale, London, UK

In this latest production of The Winter’s Tale at Shakespeare’s Globe, director Blanche McIntyre takes on the tricky task of guiding the audience from tragedy and despair to comedy and finally a classic fairy tale ending.

The King and I, London, UK

Festooned with awards and five-star reviews, the Broadway production of the classic musical The King and I is coming to London for a 14-week run. This production, the first Broadway revival since 1996, ran for 16 months, won four Tony awards, and then went on a sell-out tour of the US. The West End is lucky to receive this show.

As You Like It, London, UK

Max Webster’s family production of Twelfth Night was a brightly-coloured treat at the Regents Park Open Air Theatre a few years back. Now the director returns with Shakespeare’s forest-set romantic comedy As You Like It – not a kids’ version, but it should be big-hearted and accessible to all. And there’s original music composed by former Noah and the Whale frontman, Charlie Fink. Plan for a fun night out!
