Your week in musical theatre

Carly-Ann Clements

Tomorrow (13 October) is the first ever #NationalAlbumDay! To celebrate, we’ve used some brilliant musical cast albums to build your week in music. From the dreaded Monday to hump day Wednesday, right through to the Sunday reset. Here’s your week in musical theatre.

Monday = 9 To 5

Working 9 To 5, what a way to make a living. And what a way to sum up a Monday. Memories of the weekend are far in the past. Your desk is calling you and your boss is calling louder. Oh well. C’est la vie. Or is it? A day fantasising about all the things you wish you could do in the office to make your work life better is soooooo Monday. Just don’t accidentally spike any drinks, ya hear!

Get your tickets to 9 To 5 here.

Tuesday = Rent

You have to make rent. So you carry on plodding through the week. But you can’t help but think there are more important things to worry about. More important people to see. More important places to be. Why do you have to pay rent anyway? How is money a way to measure a day? A week? A year?

Wednesday = Les Misérables

The dreaded Wednesday. A truly miserable day. Will anything go right for you? Join in the melodic misery of Les Misérables and rise up against the mid-week slump. You never know, hearing about other people’s troubles might make your day seem better. Just don’t steal any bread…

Thursday = Avenue Q

Life questions and revelations. That’s what Thursdays have for you. What can you do with that degree of yours? Are you accepted for who you truly are? Are you ever going to have enough money? Let those thoughts marinade while you access your whole life… and why it isn’t the weekend already…

Friday = Hairspray

It’s here! The weekend is finally here. And you can see the light at the end of the tunnel. You’re feeling upbeat and nothing can get you down. In fact, you’re going to stand up against the man. You’re going to stand up for what’s right and what’s wrong. You’re going to accept yourself and all those around you because it’s Friday and it’s almost time to PARTY!

Saturday = Chicago

It’s Saturday night and you’re dressed to kill. It’s time for some cocktails, some saucy dancing and some real trouble. Prepare for some razzle dazzle and all that jazz with Chicago.

Sunday = The Lion King

Sunday. What a mixed bag. You’re up one minute. Then you’re down. You’re content with your loved ones. Then you feel the stampede of stress for the upcoming week. And soon, Monday will roll around and the whole week will start all over again. It’s the circle of life… Feel the calm before the storm with the cast album of The Lion King.

If you click through to seat selection (where you'll see either best available or a seating plan), you will be seeing the most up-to-date prices. If this differs from what we've written on the calendar, please bear with us, as those prices will update soon.

We now sell our famous TKTS Booth discounts online here at Official London Theatre.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

In order for us to serve our audiences the best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 31 May. Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider. Our producers continue to plan for all eventualities dependent on the individual needs of their shows and we will provide further updates on specific shows as and when they become available.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.

While theatres are currently closed, various venues and productions are making announcements for their individual shows, including cancellations and rescheduled performances. Please check with the individual shows for details.
