West End Productions You Must See Before They Close

Wednesday, 30th Dec 2015

Whilst the New Year will bring with it a swoop of new productions to London, we’ll also bid farewell to some of our favourites. So if you’re planning a trip to the West End in 2016, be sure to have one of them on your list to see before they close – we promise you won’t regret it!

War Horse

The award-winning wartime tale has warmed the hearts of theatregoers around the world and after an eight year London run at the National Theatre and The New London, it will finally gallop off into the sunset after its last performance on 12 March 2016. The original author of War Horse, Michael Morpurgo, recently made a special guest appearance at the West End production, which will have played over 3,000 performances and over 2.7 million people by the time it closes.

Miss Saigon

After sweeping up a record-breaking nine Whatsonstage.com awards earlier this year, the Cameron Mackintosh musical production of Boublil and Schönberg’s Miss Saigon announced its final extension to 27 February 2016. Soon after it closes the musical will begin preparations for its opening on Broadway in spring 2017, starring the familiar faces of Jon Jon Briones as The Engineer and Eva Noblezada as Kim who also played the leading characters during the show’s successful run at the Prince Edward Theatre.


Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Cats has returned to the London Palladium for a strictly limited 11 week run. This time round the musical stars Theatreland’s new favourite leading lady Beverley Knight as Grizabella, alongside a talented line-up of Jellicle cats who have together given the timeless production a new lease of life.
