Ghost the Musical

GHOST The Musical – is it as good as the film?

I have to be honest, when I first heard that they were going to make a stage version of the film GHOST, I immediately quivered with fear as I couldn’t possibly imagine how they would be able to adapt such a first class movie into a show for the West End, let alone make it into a musical. I mean the film didn’t have any singing in it apart from the infamous ‘Unchained Melody’ by The Righteous Brothers! But last night, on coach holidays to London’s West End, I found myself at the Piccadilly Theatre and as the curtain rose […]

Les Misérables – 25th Anniversary, is it really as good as people say?

For something a little different, we have asked our colleagues to review any shows or coach holidays that they go on and this week our guest blogger, Kayleigh Betts, has reviewed the fabulous West End production of Les Misérables.

Over the Christmas period my mum mentioned how she would love to go see […]

Legally Blonde

Legally Blonde talk Concorde, Cleethorpes and working in the West End

As a website featuring theatre breaks, it’s fair to say that we’ve seen our share of West End shows. However, as a team consisting largely of Andrew Lloyd Webber fans and not overly keen on cerise pink, we didn’t know what to expect with Legally Blonde The Musical, apart from a probable overdose of whiny American accents and excessive ‘like’s. So, we were totally psyched when it became clear in the vibrant opening scene that what we were actually going to experience was a completely non-whiny, refreshing musical that doesn’t take itself too seriously. The musical follows the story of […]

Celebs On Stage

With news hot off the press that Michael Crawford has been cast as the Wizard in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s latest show the ‘Wizard of Oz’, we’ve decided to mark the appointment by taking a look back at the famous faces that have danced, sung and trod the boards of the West End stage over the past few months. Whoopi Goldberg in Sister Act Hollywood heavyweight Whoopi Goldberg caused a clamour for tickets when it was announced she would play Sister Act’s Mother Superior at the London Palladium. The actress was due to take over from Sheila Hancock this August but […]

The West End at its Best

Hairspray and Sister Act may no longer be on the scene and the curtains might be closing on Grease this April, but the West End show must of course go on. With hot new musicals like the Wizard of Oz already lighting up the London stage, plus the eagerly anticipated arrivals of a pottery wheel (GHOST the Musical) and the world’s favourite green ogre (Shrek), this year’s London Theatre Breaks promise to be as glittering as ever so why not join coach holidays to the capital and find out more… GHOST the Musical Based on the Academy Award winning film with […]
