Home to the world famous West End and Shakespeare’s Globe, London is undoubtedly the capital of theatre. So, when it comes to dating in London, it doesn’t get much more romantic than a spectacular show.
But, with so many plays, comedies and musicals to pick from, knowing which one to take your date to can be tricky! Luckily for you, we’ve picked out our favourites and think these would go down a treat with the lucky lad or lass you’re dating.
The political show: Billy Elliot
If the two of you are passionate about politics and love nothing more than a post-show debate, then this will be a dating dream!
Billy Elliot tells the story of a young boy (Billy) growing up in a mining town in the north of England during Margaret Thatcher’s reign.
Amidst the mining strikes which his father so actively participates in, Billy struggles against the odds to become a dancer, much to his father’s disgust.
This show is full of talking points and is injected with humour and clever musical numbers throughout. Who knew politics could be so enjoyable!?
The sing-a-long show: Mamma Mia
If you’re after a London dating experience with the fun factor, look no further than Mamma-Mia the musical!
A romantic-comedy, the story is of a young girl who wishes for her father to walk her down the aisle, but she’s not quite sure which of 3 men her dad is!
While the two of you might not be keen to admit you know the words, we’re pretty sure you’ll be singing along or dancing in the aisles.
The nostalgic show: The Lion King
Disney’s The Lion King is sure to evoke nostalgia and emotion as it transports your date in London to the heart of the African Pridelands.
The Lion King stays true to the story you love and know so well and is staged in such a clever and visually stunning way, that you’ll forget there’s people behind those elaborate animal masks!
This show is perfect if you’re in the early stages of dating someone new as the humorous script and fabulous songs will make you both relax as you take a trip down memory lane!
The moving show: Phantom of The Opera
For the ultimate West End of London dating experience, take your date to see Phantom of The Opera.
Whether you’re a musical fan or not, this story of hope, shame, fears and love is sure to move you both and give you some thought for discussion, after the show.
These are just our favourites for a date in London, but why not find your own at TicketTree.
