One of the classics

When it comes to classic musicals, none can rival the sheer power of Andrew Lloyd Webber. His musicals, and those with his co-writer Tim Rice, have been some of the most successful stage productions across the world consistently since they were premiered.

“Les Misérables” will see the first screen adaptation hit cinemas in 2012, so book your chance to see it now at the Queen’s Theatre before a new generation of fans seek out tickets to see it on the stage.

The other perennial Lloyd Webber favourite running in London at the moment is “Phantom of the Opera”, which has run on the West End for 25 years. Currently residing at Her Majesty’s Theatre, Phantom offers some of the most memorable show tunes ever sung.

Sing-along fun

The inspiration for musicals has always come from many sources, and lately there’s been a spate of shows that give life to the songs of famous bands.
