I wrote the ‘Guest Guide to musicals’ for www.culturecritic.co.uk – they’re a really useful site for a broad range of cultural activities in London. Please check out my article and see what else takes your fancy while you’re there.
If you are interested in getting involved in musical theatre in London, get in touch with this great little theatre company for details on how to join their show choirs or future productions. I’ve been singing with them for nearly 5 years and it’s been a wonderful experience. http://www.starlingarts.com/
