In London we are spoilt for choice when it comes to theatre. I have to admit to not being able to go as often as I would like, but right now there is plethora of fantastic plays and musical theatre that you must not miss.
Here are 3 great theatre productions to see this April
Woyzeck At The Old Vic Theatre
Set in 1980s Cold War Berlin at a crossroads between capitalism and communism, John Boyega (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) stars in the seminal German play, Woyzeck, as it finally comes to The Old Vic, triumphantly reimagined by multi-award winning This Is England writer Jack Thorne.
The adaptation follows Boyega – a soldier in the British Army – as he confronts societal expectations on masculinity and PTSD while trying to build a better future for his family, shining a timely light on those people war often leaves behind.
And it looks like it’s going to be really, really good.

An American In Paris – Dominion Theatre, London
Following hot on the heels of it’s run in New York, ‘An American In Paris’ finds a young American GI pursuing his dream to make it as a painter in the aftermath of war. Following a chance encounter with a beautiful young dancer, the ‘City of Light’ becomes the backdrop to a sensuous, modern romance of art, friendship and love. An oldie but a goodie this production is the most elegant, exuberant and tuneful musical in town.
