London: A Guide To Theatre Land

Our top picks for where to go in Theatre Land

London is home to some of the best theatre productions in the world, and with The Bloomsbury nestled in the heart of its 18th century namesake, you are never more than a mere stroll from the vibrant Theatre Land that is the West End

With so many award-winning productions lining the streets around The Bloomsbury, we’ve distilled them down to some of our favourites for guests to enjoy during their stay in London.

1.     An American in Paris @ The Dominion Theatre

Just a short walk from the hotel is The Bloomsbury’s nearest theatrical neighbour, The Dominion Theatre. The theatre is currently home to the Tony Award-winning ‘An American In Paris’, a Broadway musical spectacular about love, hope and living your dreams which has been taking the West End by storm with a record-breaking 28 five-star reviews from the critics. From the goadrgeous Gershwin sound-track to the show-stopping choreography this production is a must see. Located just next door to The Bloomsbury, the Hotel’s concierge team can arrange tickets for hotel guests.

Down the road, at the world famous Shaftesbury Theatre, Motown The Musical follows the legendary career of Berry Gordy and the creation of his musical empire. The Broadway phenomenon is said to leave people dancing down the street on the way home from performances. ‘Ain’t no mountain high enough’ to match the electrifying energy of this performance.

4.     Harry Potter and the Cursed Child @ The Palace Theatre 

No guide to London’s theatre would be complete without J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany’s original new story. The most awarded West End production in the history of the Olivier Awards, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child won a breath-taking nine awards including Best New Play and Best Director. Clearly, it’s a must-see.
