More Money than Sense: Shows Worth Spending On
1: “Richard III” Old Vic Theatre
Kevin Spacey owns the stage in the best Richard III since McKellen. This is also the final production from the brilliant Bridge Project, drawing talent from New York and London and should not be missed.inflatable slides for sale

Returning to London this is the last chance to catch “Jerusalem”, Jez Butterworth’s elegiac hymn to the decay of rural England, the Archers this ain’t…
3: “Matilda The Musical” Cambridge Theatre
This new musical from the RSC combines the classic Roald Dahl tale with music from painfully cool comedian Tim Minchin. Grab any child you know as an excuse to get to see this.
4: “One Man, Two Guvnors” Adelphi Theatre
An Italian Farce, itself a sort of Carry On 1746, that has been pulled apart, updated and set in 60’s Brighton to form what is essentially a showcase for the considerable comedic talents of James Corden.cheap aviva water totter
5: “Broken Glass” Vaudeville Theatre
Tara Fitzgerald deserves particular credit for her conflicted turn here in Arthur Miller’s depiction of betrayal and guilt in 1940’s New York.

Combining two short plays that deal with the pain of sexual awakening this is different to the camp and cheerful shows normally to be found at the Stag, regular punters may be surprised but the final performances are well worth it.christmas inflatables

A detailed and intelligent look at the life in a modern army, this production uses film and music to excellent and subtle effect, one of this years highlights from Edinburgh Tente Sealed Air!
5: “The Night Porters” Tabard Theatre
This won’t be around for much longer but it’s coming back in April so catch it then. A deliciously dark black comedy about ghosts, possessions and Scotch eggs. What more could you ask for?
