After the chaos of the pandemic years, London’s theatre scene is fully reopened: a little battered around the edges still, but essentially how it was before Covid shut the theatres for 18 months: the best theatre city in the world, heaving with classic musicals, bold new writing, exciting international work and the all-important fringes.
This rolling list is constantly updated to share the best of what’s coming up and currently booking: these choices aren’t the be-all and end-all of great theatre in 2023, but they are, as a rule, the biggest and splashiest shows on the horizon, and the smaller, cooler ones we’re looking forward to the most as well. They’re shows worth booking for, pronto.
