The West End's longest running show, The Mousetrap, has just announced its cast for its 66th consecutive year on the London stage.

Heathers The Musical, which is set to star Carrie Hope Fletcher as Veronica, broke box office records last week when it became the largest selling production at The Other Palace in the theatre's history. The musical is set to officially premiere on 9 June for a limited 8-week engagement.

Following a hugely successful opening that was well-received by fans and critics alike, TINA: The Tina Turner Musical has once again prolonged its run.

Six, a musical based on King Henry VIII's six wives, is set to return to the London stage come August.

Final casting has been announced for the thought-provoking play, Consent, which opens at the Harold Pinter Theatre come May.

I had the pleasure of reviewing Dreamgirls (you can read that here) at a time when it was in high season with both Amber Riley in the role of Effie and the general buzz and hype of a go-to show. Sitting very nicely in the palatial surroundings of The Savoy on London’s Strand is one of the West End's finest productions, complete with a strong storyline and stellar music. I made a return journey to Dreamgirls to see if it's still as glorious now that the show has firmly bedded in and if the new casting can live up to old expectations.

If you’re already a fan of this hit musical then you’re going to be delighted that it’s back to take the West End by storm once again. And if you’re new to it like I was, then you’re in for a thrilling ride. Fans of Meat Loaf are bound to flock to this show, excited to hear all the hits, but there’s so much more to it than just great numbers. It’s the rock and roll, dystopian Footloose you never knew you wanted and here are just 5 reasons why you should make Bat Out of Hell your next musical.
