With New London being a relatively young theatre (doors opened in 1973), it’s no surprise that musicals are the mainstay. Andrew Lloyd Webber commandeered the joint in 1981, installed ‘Cats’ and promptly left it there to run and run until 2002. Since then there’s been ‘Gone With the Wind’ and ‘Imagine This’ as well as the love them or hate them Blue Man Group. The theatre may yet redeem itself with the transfer of the National Theatre’s critically-acclaimed production of ‘War Horse’.
