Here’s a guide to some of the shows that you might want to book tickets for in the week beginning 13 January 2020.
With a new year fast approaching, it is an interesting time to reflect on small changes across the theatre landscape in 2019 that will continue to shape how UK theatre will look as it moves into a new decade.
In our continuing series, our editor Lisa Martland picks out some of her Top Picks from the last week of theatre including Ben Dowell (for theatreCat) giving his verdict on the much-anticipated arrival of Dear Evan Hansen at the Noel Coward Theatre.
Dear Evan Hansen is a taut and original work, garlanded work which scrutinises the problems of basic human narcissism colliding with the fact that social platforms allow everyone to be heroes of their own narratives these days.
There’s much to like about Dear Evan Hansen at the Noël Coward Theatre, not least a brilliant lead performance from Sam Tutty.
A suicide. A lie. The unexpected… Dear Evan Hansen is an entertaining – and filled with talent – show, that will have a long life in the West End. And this is not a lie.
Love London Love Culture selects seven of the best shows opening in the capital in November.

Renée Fleming’s choices are shrewd and wide-ranging in her Broadway album, embracing the contemporary and the classic in pretty much equal measure whilst demonstrating that style in this repertoire probably has more to do with attitude than technical adjustment. More, but not all.
We’ve said goodbye to 2018 — including a look back at some of the year’s highlights and lowlights. Now it’s time to look ahead to 2019 — and offer my picks of the year so far announced.
Mark Shenton views the week of news, openings & upcoming awards… in the West End, Broadway & beyond.
Tony Award-winning musical Dear Evan Hansen will open at the Noël Coward Theatre in autumn 2019, reuniting the original Broadway creative team for this West End production.
Mark Shenton offers a wrap-up of news from the West End, Broadway and Edinburgh, including the West End transfer of Waitress, Edward Hall saying farewell to Hampstead Theatre and Laura Benanti joining My Fair Lady on Broadway.
It’s an amazing time for diversity of style in “musicals” on both sides of the pond. Hamilton’s hip-hop, street poetry, storytelling, David Yazbek’s middle-eastern infused charmer The Band’s Visit, Jeanine Tesori’s Fun Home (newly arrived at London’s Young Vic while her dazzlingly original Caroline Or Change plays at the Playhouse Theatre).
The unique selling feature of a $200-a-ticket Broadway musical which sets it apart from our homemade West End ones is often a vast stage filled with 40 hoofers and a dozen ginormous sets. What makes Dear Evan Hansen so good and special is it has none of these.
The 71st annual Tony Awards were hosted by Kevin Spacey on 11 June 2017 at Radio City Music Hall. But who were the big winners of the evening? Dear Evan Hansen, that’s who!
