London shows to see with your friends

By John Drake Published 14 February 2018

There’s plenty of buzz about couples around at the moment. But if you’re hanging out with a group of friends any time soon, and the topic of getting London theatre tickets comes up, we’ve the perfect suggestions for you! Take a look at some of London’s finest West End shows to share with your mates.

The Best Man

The Best Man at the Playhouse Theatre

The clue’s in the title! What better way to tell your best buddy that he’s the only friend for you than take him to The Best Man?!

On the other hand, the show is about two presidential candidates in a no-holds-barred tussle to grasp power… but if you have a point to prove about who’s the better friend, then maybe The Best Man is the play for you!

The Book Of Mormon

Mates always have each other’s backs…. even when, as with The Book Of Mormon, it means travelling halfway across the world to Africa to depose an unscrupulous war lord, with nothing but the bible and Joseph Smith’s good word!

Elder Price proves that, in the end, true friendship overcomes evil – in London musicals, at least. You and your mates will love it…. but mostly YOUUUUUU!

Friends sometimes get a raw deal this time of year. Who is it that picks you up after a break-up, goes out with you when you’re in need of a boost, and always makes you laugh when times are tough? They deserve some love!

In Everybody’s Talking About Jamie, it’s Jamie’s family and friends who support him through the ups and downs. This show has got to be up their as one of the most uplifting, fulfilling things you can see together in the West End.

So many amazing friendships in Matilda The Musical: Mrs Phelps – The first glimmer of hope in an otherwise evil, book-ripping world. The friendly librarian shows Matilda real warmth and kindness for the first time. We could learn a lot from her!

Bruce Bogtrotter – What a hero! Is there anything more brilliant than watching your friend stuff themselves with their favourite food until they nearly explode?!
Lavender – What a star! How many of your friends would scare your worst enemy out of their skin with a fresh, wriggly newt?
Miss Honey – Ahhh, Miss Honey, sweetness, intelligence, gentleness incarnate… and one HECK of a powerful voice!
