There are a hell of a lot of musicals running in London at any given time, from decades-long classics like ‘Les Miserables and ‘The Phantom of the Opera’ to short run fringe obscurities. Here we round up every West End musical currently running or coming soon, plus fringe and off-West End shows that we’ve reviewed – all presented in fabulous alphabetical order.

A-Z list of London and West End musicals

& Juliet

Shaftesbury Theatre, Shaftesbury Avenue
4 out of 5 stars

‘& Juliet’ is a heavily ironic Shakespeare rewrite based on the songs of super-producer Max Martin. And with the gift of that knowledge, I can fairly confidently state that you’ll probably like ‘& Juliet’ almost precisely as much as you expect to like ‘& Juliet’…

Amélie the Musical

The Other Palace, Victoria
3 out of 5 stars

When this musical take on whimsical 2001 romcom ‘Amélie’ floated into Broadway a few years back, New York’s critics rounded on it for being too insipid, too sweet, and not nearly French enough…

COMING SOON Carousel

Regent's Park Open Air Theatre, Regent’s Park

Rodgers & Hammerstein’s greatest musical is good enough to be revived almost constantly and dated enough to usually feel a bit uncomfortable. But might the Open Air Theatre’s flamboyant artistic director Timothy Sheader be the man to drag it into the twenty-first century? 

Theatre, Off-West End

COMING SOON City of Angels

Garrick Theatre, Charing Cross Road
4 out of 5 stars

It was a wet December night. The type of night that’s only good for two things: going to see a pastiche film noir musical, and going home to try and half-assedly write a pastiche film noir-style review of the musical while knocking back cheap Russian vodka…

Come from Away

Phoenix Theatre, Charing Cross Road
5 out of 5 stars

Dear Evan Hansen

Noël Coward Theatre, Covent Garden
4 out of 5 stars
