#BlueMonday became HAMILTON DAY as priority list tickets for the London production went on sale. We just can’t ‘Wait For It’! Public booking opens on 30th January so there’s still a chance to get yours if you forgot to sign up to the priority list. And there are still lots of other great musicals to see in London before HAMILTON comes along. We’ve made a list of some of our favourites for you to put in the diary. Make 2017 your #YearOfTheatre!


We're starting with Part One: The First 11. That's how many great musicals we've found for you to enjoy in January and February 2017!
