From musicals to Shakespearean classics, the streets around Mayfair play host to some of the city’s best productions. Read on for our guide to what’s on over the next few months…
In the heart of Mayfair, The Wolseley is impeccably located between some of the city’s finest cultural institutions and theatres.
Sitting no more than a few minutes’ walk away from The Wolseley’s iconic location on Piccadilly, tucked away in the back streets of St. James’s lies the Jermyn Street Theatre. It may be the smallest theatre in the West End, but don’t let this fool you. Currently showing is ‘The Massive Tragedy of Madame Bovary!’. Marieke Audsley directs the latest comedy from John Nicholson, where four actors battle hilarious mishaps and misbehaving props to tell the (massively) tragic story of Madame Bovary.
If you take a stroll further along Jermyn Street, you will find the Harold Pinter Theatre, which is back with a truly stellar line-up. Currently, you can catch David Tenant returning to the west-end in the thought-provoking production, ‘Good’.
Fondly known as the writers’ theatre, The Royal Court Theatre down in Sloane Square is raising the curtain once more with a curated selection of award-winning and up-and-coming voices. Showing now is ‘Baghdaddy’ -Jasmine Naziha Jones’s debut play, and developed as part of an Introduction to Playwriting group at the Royal Court. Royal Court Associate Milli Bhatia (seven methods of killing Kylie Jenner) directs.
A musical interlude
If musicals are more to your choosing, then it’s safe to say you are spoilt for choice…
Newer to the stage, but no less of a favourite is ‘Hamilton’. At the Victoria Palace Theatre, Lin Manuel Miranda’s masterful storytelling brings to life the eponymous title character Alexander Hamilton, America’s founding father and George Washington’s right-hand man.
Also situated just the other side of Green Park is the Apollo Victoria Theatre, home to the stage-to-screen hit ‘Wicked’. Told from the perspective of the witches themselves, this spin on the classic novel by L Frank Baum brings the magical world of Oz to life.
The Playhouse Theatre, now reborn as ‘The Kit Kat Club’, continues to play host to the Olivier-award-winning production of ‘Cabaret’ until at least 28 January 2023.
When thinking of London’s most iconic venues the Royal Albert Hall is most definitely up there. With its unrivalled acoustics and stunning interiors, there is nowhere else quite like it in the city. Book now for Late Night Jazz evenings throughout October and November. And further ahead, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra is presenting Casino Royale, Skyfall and Spectre in concert throughout November.
