Where can I see a musical in London?

You can see musicals all over London. Most major musicals play at the theatres in the West End, but Off-West End venues in other neighborhoods, from major institutions like the National to small, intimate venues, also put on musicals. These include new works and revivals, and some successful productions will transfer to the West End.

What is the price range for musical tickets in London?

Prices for musical tickets in London vary, though the average is approximately £50. Dress circle and balcony seats further back in the theatre, seats at Off-West End musicals, and seats bought early tend to cost less than more expensive stalls tickets closer to the stage or for a particularly in-demand show. No matter what seating section or price point you buy for, though, your seat will provide a great view of all the action.
