Hi everyone,

My sister-in-laws are coming to the UK for the first time ever (they're from SA and this is their 1st overseas trip) and I'd appreciate any recommendations of plays they should see in the West End.

The Reduced Shakespeare Company shows are brilliant - very funny and lighthearted - don't let the word Shakespeare in the title make you think it is 'proper' Shakespeare' it definately isn't.

If they are coming soon, well-reviewed current productions include All's Well That Ends Well (with Judi Dench), Hamlet at the Old Vic (Ben Whishaw/Imogen Stubbs) and Michael Frayn's play about Willy Brandt, Democracy.
My personal pick of the musicals would be Anything Goes. The London transfer of The Producers is shortly hitting town too...
Hope they have a wonderful time here!

I would highly recommend going for a big musical, Phantom, Les Miserables etc (if they are still running!)

The Lion King is amazing! Seen it 3 times, going again for the fourth time in the summer! Lol, and you dont have to be a fan of the movie to enjoy it.
