ONLINE THEATRE
Theatres throughout Britain were closed for most of 2020 and 2021, and some filled the gap by putting new and older productions online. Online theatre, both new and classic, continues to be a significant supplement to live performances, and we review them alongside our coverage of current London theatre.

What we do
. . .
We offer authoritative, independent London theatre reviews. We cover London's West End, off-West End and fringe, and some theatre outside London, notably the annual Edinburgh Festival. We have a reputation for reliable evaluations, and if a show is bad, we'll say so. And therefore if we say it's good, you can believe us.


 

Our dedicated Off-West End, Family and Out Of London pages offer links to leading theatres in each category. We list upcoming shows and offer insiders' hints on saving money on tickets.

Whether you go to the theatre every evening or are planning a single night out, whether you already know what you like or want help choosing a show, Theatreguide.London's reviews of past and current London shows will help you decide what to see and what to skip! Click on one of the categories to the left to read our reviews of current London shows

check back frequently.
