There’s something special about going to the theatre; digging out your best outfit, jumping in a taxi, having a tipple before-hand, settling into those red velvet seats and always being tempted by an ice cream in the interval. Here at CitySocialising we love any excuse to hit the shows and be razzle dazzled by the glitz and glamour of the London stage!
If you’re keen on the theatre why not get in touch with some other likeminded people on CitySocialising and arrange a trip to see a show?

Top London shows to see this season
Since its Broadway premiere over fifty years ago the role musical made famous by Liza Minnelli has been a diehard favourite full of classic recognisable tunes. And now you can see it starring Will Young and Michelle Ryan. Not quite the same but still…check it out at The Savoy Theatre.
Showing at the Menier Chocolate Factory this comic farce stars Matthew Horne of Gavin and Stacy and has had rave reviews. Back in the 1800s this was the original box office blockbuster. It involves three idiotic toffs, lots of champagne and plenty of hijinks.
If you’ve ever tapped a toe to Gene Kelly’s ubiquitous rendition but never seen the original musical, now’s your chance, at the Palace Theatre.
Toby Jones has taken over from James Corden to much acclaim and by all accounts this the play to see this year. A light-hearted farce about a man torn between two masters at the Haymarket Theatre Royal.
