The Phantom of the Opera

4 out of 5 stars
Theatre Musicals

Get your kicks '80s style with Andrew Lloyd Webber’s fantastically, extravagantly gothic musical. Doomed love, terror, underground caverns, and more black brocade than a Whitby weekend; what more do you want?

The Woman in Black

4 out of 5 stars
Theatre Drama Fortune Theatre, Covent Garden

It's been over 20 years since this skillful adaptation of Susan Hill's 1983 Gothic horror story first started setting West End audience a-shiver. And it still delivers shocks, gasps and bumps-in-the-night aplenty. Perfect fare for Halloween.
