London has always been synonymous with musicals, offering in avant-premiere in Europe, the best shows coming from Broadway. The offer is infinite and it could be hard to decide the one to book, especially when you are there for a couple of days. No worries, we have worked hard this last year (helped a lot by my parents every time they come for the week-end), and after seeing a dozen of them, we are eventually able to share our selection. It will depend on your taste for sure but if there is only one you can’t miss, it is definitely the Fanthom of the Opera! We put our favorites below and a top tip to pay cheapest tickets at TKTS. Enjoy!
