West End Musicals that will make you want to Get Up and Dance

Tuesday, 5th Jan 2016

West End musicals that continue to draw audiences with their catchy show tunes and sing along storylines.

In The Heights

After a sell-out season at the Southwark Playhouse, In The Heights made a highly anticipated return to London at the King’s Cross Theatre. Combining feel good music with outstanding songs and choreography, the sassy rhythms and talented cast will not only get you moving in your seat, but coming back for more!

Billy Elliot

Young Billy’s not the only one that won’t be able to control his feet during the performance. Since the musical opened in the West End it has entertained over five million theatregoers. As it closes its London run at the Victoria Palace Theatre the show will embark on a UK tour, giving audiences around the country the chance to experience the magic of the popular production on stage.

Lord of the Dance: Dangerous Games

Michael Flatley’s much loved dance show has returned to Theatreland after a successful run at the Dominion Theatre. Now open for a limited run at the Playhouse, the show continues to draw audiences with its impressive toe-tapping dance numbers – in fact, we dare you to get through a performance without joining in! 


If you’re looking for something a little different be sure not to miss Stomp. The lively production boasts a line-up of performers with the incredible ability to turn just about anything into a musical instrument.  The fast-paced music and rhythmic sounds will soon get your heart racing as you watch them bring everyday objects to life. 

Mamma Mia

Whilst it goes without saying that the Abba musical will make you feel like a dancing queen, don’t be surprised if the night ends with you playing the part too. In fact, the cast have even admitted to seeing some rather questionable dance moves in the audience during performances – something to bear in mind if you’re lucky enough to grab a seat in the front row! 

Whether the West End’s musicals have you clapping along in your seat or jumping out of it, you can be sure that they’ll provide you with a trip to the theatre you’ll never forget.
