Summer Theatre Guide

Discover some of the best theatrical performances in London this Summer with our Summer Theatre Guide and The Bloomsbury.

 

This Summer, London welcomes some of the greatest theatrical performances and shows and with The Bloomsbury right in the heart of this creative and literary district, it is the perfect base for a ‘drama-free’ London retreat. To celebrate the Summer theatre season, we take a look at the top 5 shows new to the West End this Summer…

1. Harry Potter and the Cursed Child
A brand new Harry Potter story arrives in the West End and it could be the biggest stage event of 2016. When the final film was released in 2011 and this magical franchise ended, us muggles desperately began to miss our favourite wizard trio. But now we have them back, 19 years on from the imagination of Hogwarts, this dazzling play follows the adventures of a middle-aged Harry and his son. A suitably magical event.

Where: Palace Theatre, Soho
When: July 13th –  May 27th 2017

2. No Man’s Land
Sir Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart are the delightful duo that have finally brought this hailed production of Harold Pinter’s ‘No Man’s Land’ across the pond from New York to London. The cryptic classic follows a power-play between writers Hirst (Stewart) and Spooner (McKellen) as they booze into the night, only to be interrupted by two unexpected arrivals.

Where: Wyndham’s Theatre, Covent Garden
When: September 8th – December 17th 2016

3. Funny Girl
Back in 1964, Barbra Streisand stormed the stage as Fanny Brice, a New York comedienne and singer who is eagerly awaiting the return of her husband from prison. A raucous, heart-felt and charming production is sure to have you smiling from ear to ear.

Where: Savoy Theatre, Charing Cross
When: Now – until October 8th 2016
