YOUR COMPLETE GUIDE TO WHAT’S ON


Welcome to the 9-22 January edition of the Official London Theatre Guide, brought to you by officiallondontheatre.co.uk, the capital’s leading theatre news and show listings website. Welcome to London’s Theatreland in 2017 – and Happy New Year! As this issue of the Guide demonstrates, if the forthcoming year is anything like the next fortnight, we’re in for a storming 365 days of all things theatrical! Why not give yourself the best possible chance of starting 2017 in style? Providing extra sparkle to the start of the year is our brilliant (if we do say so ourselves!) annual ticket promotion, Get Into London Theatre, which runs until 10 February. What’s the deal? More than 50 top London shows, from beloved long-runners to the latest hits storming the West End and beyond, are offering reduced price tickets for just £10, £20, £30, or £40, for performances up to the closing date of the promotion. Every genre is covered, from family entertainment to fantastic comedy and harrowing drama, and from majestic musicals to dazzling dance, so there’s really something for everyone, and for every budget. Check out getintolondontheatre.co.uk for more details and to book your tickets. Finally, make sure you don’t miss some of the winter season's best shows departing this fortnight, with The Children (page 9), The Dresser (page 10), Trainspotting (page 13), Cinderella (page 13), Potted Panto (page 14) and Lazarus (page 22) all set to leave the capital. You won’t want to miss them. For more information on shows playing this fortnight, and to book your seats, make sure to visit officiallondontheatre.co.uk
