The great, almighty and ever-so glorious West End. From CATS to Les Miserables and The Lion King, the West End has it all. Catering to every age and agenda, it’s a London hotspot for tourists and locals alike. Treat yourself to a temporary break from reality. Get lost in a whirlwind of emotions, laughter and magical awe-inspiring theatrical performances.
I recall my first ever West End show, CATS. Composed by the renowned Andrew Llyod Webber. I was thoroughly entertained and simultaneously terrified. Witnessing uncanny human-sized felines prancing around on stage was surreally frightening. Either way, the vibe, cosmic stage and West End world are something I had never experienced before and something I will never forget.
Christmas is coming up and there’s nothing better than receiving tickets to see a show, or treating someone you love ♥ Compiled below are the #CreatedByKeeo list of current, MUST SEE West End shows.
1 | The Lion King
The ciiiiiiiircle of liiiiiiiiiiiiife! SOLD. Is it possible to NOT enjoy the Lion King? I’ve probably watched the movie 500 times and counting. It’s a timeless classic and one for the kids as well as grown-ups to indulge in. Being one of the most successful musicals of all time with a diverse stage presence of African masks, Japanese Kabuki costumes, Malaysian shadow puppetry – all mashed together to create an explosion of spectacle. This is a MUST SEE.
2 | Aladdin
Shining shiiiiiimmmmerrrrring spleeeeendid. These 3 words from the Disney hit ‘A whole new world’basically sums up this eye captivating show. The story of a princess and a peasant that find love in the city of Agrabah is my ultimate childhood favourite. The show exudes a wondrous colour palette, electrifying dancing, all wrapped together in a fabulous singing extravaganza by our beloved Jasmine, dishy Aladdin and a flamboyant genie.
