We have both sets of parentals coming over later this year for holiday, and want to take them out to the theatre (well, technically only Matt's as they're sticking around longer). But there's always so much going on in London that I can't decide what they should go see.

Last two times Matt's folks were here, they saw 'Kiss Me Kate', and 'We Will Rock You', so I'm thinking along the lines of lighter theatrical entertainment compared to something Shakespearean or like 'War Horse' or opera.

So help me out - vote in the poll! Or make a suggestion!

My vote is for "Mamma mia ". I love ABBA . But Oliver ! could be another good one ( I watched de movie and enjoyed it . I don´t know how good can be the musical )

I'm thinking it might be 'Mamma Mia!'! It seems to be the popular option so far in the comments.

The musical and non-musical 'Oliver' are both really good - tho' I've only seen the movie versions. Haven't seen it on stage but have been wanting to. Rowan Atkinson has been Fagin, which made us doubly want to go but tickets sold out pretty quick and he finishes soon. The comedian Omid Djalili takes over after Rowan. He's awesome so I still want to go see it although I can't imagine him as Fagin as well as I can picture Rowan!
