As Andy Warhol says, “The idea of waiting for something makes it more exciting.” But it all depends on whether you’re expecting the best or the worst (which can turn anticipation into anxiety).

So you can anticipate some very exciting musicals, plays, comedy gigs, and other new theatre shows in London in 2014.


Dirty Rotten Scoundrels
The musical version of it is coming to London in March 2014 casting Robert Lindsay, Katherine Kingsley, and Rufus Hound.

Cladwell has made his fortune by bribing and monopolizing public toilets.  Law and order are strict and the police officers are brutal, it’s not a place to get caught. If you do, you’ll be sent to a place from where no one returns ever – the Urinetown.

To ensure everyone enjoys this classic fairy tale, the show is an adapted version for young ones with Delibes’s compelling melodies complemented by a narration. I would make a perfect activity for family travellers.
