Whether you are seeking a show-stopping musical, a play at The National, or an outdoor affair staged beneath the summer sun in Regent’s Park, here is a collection of our most anticipated shows for the summer ahead.
Guests staying at Hotel 41 or The Rubens at the Palace this summer are ideally located to attend the astounding Hamilton, currently running at Victoria Palace Theatre. Whilst the show’s name gives way to its tale of the American founding father, Alexander Hamilton, its blend of hip-hop, jazz, R&B, and a touch of classic musical buoyancy makes it a show that not only tells history but creates it. If that doesn’t sell it enough, the musical also earnt a reputation as one of the greatest shows on Broadway since its release in New York.
Hamilton ticket holders can also enjoy an exciting 15% saving when visiting any of the bars and restaurants at The Rubens thanks to an exciting partnership with the theatre.

What better way to immerse yourself in London’s past and present than attending a performance of My Fair Lady? After more than two decades away, the show has returned to the big smoke and landed its feet at the London Coliseum where it continues to tell the tale of Eliza Doolittle – a Cockney flower girl turned Lady thanks to phonetics professor, Henry Higgins. Whilst the story is based on George Bernard Shaw’s Pygmalion, attendees to this performance will be met with a reinterpreted ending that has been met with applause from critics.
