The Most Anticipated Shows Heading To The West End This October

Friday, 18th Sep 2015

Every month we bid farewell to some fantastic West End shows and extend a warm welcome to the latest London theatre has to offer. Here is a closer look at what’s coming up in October:

Get up close and personal with the familiar sounds of Bacharach

After a successful run at London’s Menier Chocolate Factory, Close To You Bacharach Reimagined will be transferring to The Criterion Theatre. With preview performances starting on 3rd October 2015, theatregoers and music-lovers alike are excited to soak in the sounds of Burt Bacharach’s songbook.

Given the blessing of the accomplished composer himself, Burt Bacharach has called the show “a love letter and truly unique.” Performed by a youthful group of talented musicians and singers, Bacharach’s nostalgic songs are brought back to life thanks to the impressive new musical arrangements by Kyle Riabko who also heads up the cast. Get ready for a fresh take on over 30 well-known classics including ‘I say a little prayer’, ‘The look of love’, ‘Walk on by’ and ‘What’s new pussycat’…to name a few!

Sing out loud for all to hear with Elf The Musical

Based on the 2003 hit film Elf starring Will Ferrel, the story uncovers the journey of an orphan raised as an elf after being mistakenly brought to the North Pole by Santa Clause on Christmas Eve. The musical production will star Ben Forster in the leading role as Buddy the Elf alongside Girls Aloud’s Kimberley Walsh as Jovie. The show will open at the Dominion Theatre on 26th October for a 10-week run.

Harlequinade and All On Her Own

Straight from The Kenneth Branagh Theatre Company and starring Branagh himself, these two shows are a must-see for any theatre lover. Supported by a fantastic cast, we watch the drama unfold behind the scenes of a theatre company getting ready to perform two of William Shakespeare’s classic tales; The Winter’s Tale and Romeo and Juliet.

Zoë Wanamaker takes on the role of Dame Maud in Harlequinade as well as centre stage in All On Her Own, as she performs Terence Rattigan’s dramatic monologue.

Lord of the Dance: Dangerous Games is back!

After recently completing a successful six-month run at the Dominion Theatre, Michael Flatley’s world famous dance phenomenon is back for a limited season in October at The Playhouse Theatre. The upcoming shows will star competitive Irish dance duo James Keegan and Morgan Corner who were both handpicked and trained by Flately to take on the leading roles following his retirement from UK performances.
