Specialist tour operator Newmarket Holidays announces a fantastic new line-up of West End shows for its 2012 and 2013 London Theatre Breaks.
Straight from sell-out seasons at the National Theatre and Adelphi Theatre, side-splitting comedy ‘One Man, Two Guvnors’ transfers to Theatre Royal Haymarket with a brand new cast. When the permanently ravenous Francis Henshall is fired from his skiffle band, he becomes a minder for two guvnors, and in his increasingly desperate efforts to keep them apart, glorious confusion ensues. If it’s an evening of belly laughs you’re after – along with satire, songs, slapstick and glittering one-liners – Nicholas Hytner's award-winning play is just the ticket.
For another very British affair, the much anticipated ‘Viva Forever!’ opens at the Piccadilly Theatre. An original story of our times, this fabulous, feel-good musical is guaranteed to spice up any girls’ weekend away. Written by comedy legend Jennifer Saunders and produced by Judy Craymer (of smash-hit ‘Mamma Mia!’ fame), it’s an irresistibly funny tale of love, loyalty and romance inspired by, and featuring, the songs of the Spice Girls.
Premiering in the West End this autumn, ‘The Bodyguard’ will star Tony Award-winning Broadway actress, Heather Headley. Based on the smash-hit 1982 film, this romantic thriller, featuring a whole host of Whitney Houston’s greatest hits - from “Saving All My Love” and “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” to “I Will Always Love You” – is sure to be a real treat.
With theatre break packages starting at just £79 per person – and including a ticket to a top show - Newmarket Holidays’ New London Theatre Breaks offer superb value for money. Catering to theatre-goers from all over the UK, Newmarket’s coach-inclusive Theatre Trips depart from a multitude of pick-up points. And if you’d prefer to take the train or make your own way there, Newmarket’s Rail and Self-Drive Theatre Trips offer a flexible alternative.
Fans of The Beatles can celebrate the 50th anniversary of the world’s most successful rock’n'roll band by booking a London Theatre Break to see ‘Let It Be!’ This spectacular theatrical concert is jam-packed with over 20 of the Fab Four’s greatest hits. Relive their meteoric rise from Liverpool’s Cavern Club, through the heights of Beatlemania, to later studio masterpieces – from “Twist and Shout”, “She Loves You” and “All My Lovin” to “Yesterday”, “Come Together” and “Hey Jude”.
Celebrating the life of the King of Pop, ‘Thriller’ is another must-see for music fans. Award-winning director Gary Lloyd’s spectacular show features over two-hours of Jackson’s hits - including “I Want You Back”, “I’ll Be There”, “Beat It” and “Billie Jean” – delivered by an exceptionally talented cast and live band.
Devotees of ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ will be sure to enjoy a London Theatre Break to see past winner Tom Chambers play the irrepressible Jerry Travers in the critically acclaimed ‘Top Hat’. Packed full of Irving Berlin's greatest hits such as “Let's Face the Music and Dance” and “Cheek to Cheek”, this giddy celebration of 1930s song and dance is packed with stunning tap, romantic ballroom, and a little bit of Busby Berkeley thrown in for good measure.
