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!

Poll #1423726 Parentals' visit - theatrical options

What musical/play/theatrical masterpiece do you reckon would be good?

Priscilla, Queen of the Desert
Jersey Boys
Mamma Mia!
The 39 Steps
Something better! (suggestion below)

What else would you recommend?

I'm with the rest on "Mamma Mia!" The safest choice and guaranteed to please. Plus, you'll have fun, too, just singing along. :) I am almost tempted to suggest "Priscilla," just to ask you for their reaction to the subject matter. lol. But it might not be their cup of tea. Or it might! :)

As rowanceleste and I agreed, singing along with made-up words! lol!

"Priscilla" is awesome. I think they'd enjoy it, as both of them have a very irreverent sense of humour, and from kinda-rural Australia. Matt's uncle (mum's brother) is gay, tho' not of the camp nor cross-dressing type.

But I'm pretty sure they would love "Mamma Mia!" and it seems to be a crowd-pleaser.

Then "Priscilla" sounds like something that would be fun for everyone. And you can sit back and observe reactions. It's a theater in an of itself. lol.

You could do both shows, right? :)

This is true, we could do both shows! Really amp up their 'cultural' intake for the year! I don't think they get even the travelling shows put on near them.
