From soul-stirring folk operas to one-woman sensations and '80s musical tributes, the West End's 2024 lineup promises a diverse and thrilling theatrical experience.

The pulsating heart of London's entertainment scene, the West End, is gearing up for a theatrical whirlwind in 2024. From soul-stirring folk operas to one-woman sensations and a musical trip back to the '80s, there's something for everyone. Let's take a closer look at the eclectic mix of performances lighting up the stages.

1. Hadestown - a journey to the underworld

The buzz from Broadway has finally landed in London's West End – and it's bringing the underworld with it. Anais Mitchell's folk opera, "Hadestown," draws inspiration from the myths of Orpheus and Eurydice, and Hades and Persephone. This Tony Award-winning musical, previously a hit at the National Theatre, promises an exhilarating journey where souls are sacrificed in pursuit of freedom. With a track record of wowing audiences, it's a show that demands early booking to secure your spot in the underworld of emotions.

2. The Picture of Dorian Gray - a one-woman spectacle

Leicester Square hosts a unique theatrical experience until May 11, 2024, as Sarah Snook takes on Oscar Wilde's "The Picture of Dorian Gray" in a one-woman show. Since her last appearance on the London stage in 2016, Snook has evolved from a rising star to a household name, thanks to her standout role in HBO's "Succession." This 900-seat theatre spectacle is a testament to Snook's star power as she plays all the roles in this captivating drama.

3. Just for One Day - a musical tribute to live aid

If you're ready for a nostalgic trip back to the '80s, Waterloo is the place to be until March 30, 2024. "Just for One Day," a musical adaptation of Bob Geldof's iconic 1985 Live Aid concerts, promises a soundtrack filled with screeching '80s stadium rock hits. The logical brilliance of this idea is undeniable, making it a must-see for fans of the era's music and historical moments.

4. An Enemy of the People - Matt Smith's theatrical return

Covent Garden hosts Matt Smith's return to the West End after 15 years, and it's anything but conventional. Known for his pre-Doctor Who West End runs and later opting for hipster stage projects, Smith brings something cool and innovative to Theatreland. "An Enemy of the People" isn't just any old Ibsen revival; it's the English-language premiere of Thomas Ostermeier's globally acclaimed production. The play features a townhall debate-style section, inviting the audience to engage in ethical deliberations, making it a theatre experience like no other.
