Five musicals we’re looking forward to in 2014

Miss Saigon
The return of Miss Saigon broke box office records when it was announced back in October, with £4.4 million takings from ticket sales in just one day. It first ran 25 years ago at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane, and has played in 300 cities in 15 different languages.

Claude-Michel Schönberg’s iconic musical returns to the West End in May and will be showing at the Prince Edwards Theatre.

The Light Princess

Tori Amos’ magical musical The light Princes has received critical acclaim and was nominated for six WhatsOnStage awards. The show is due to close at the beginning of February, so make sure you catch it at the Lyttelton Theatre while you can.

Stephen Ward
Andrew Lloyd Webber’s latest musical charts the downfall of osteopath Stephen Ward, who became embroiled in the scandalous Profumo Affair that rocked the establishment in the 1960s.

The show opened in late 2013 at the Aldwych Theatre and is set to run into 2014.

American Psycho
In 2013 Bret Easton Ellis notorious novel American Psycho was brought to the stage for the first time by a cast that featured Matt Smith as the nefarious Patrick Bateman.

The show had a short run at London’s Almeida Theatre in late 2013, with nearly every night sold out. There are no confirmed plans to extend the show, but with such a strong critical and public response we hope it will feature in 2014.
