Walk around the West End of London and you are never more than a few minutes’ walk from a theatre.
Musical theatre today brings together brand new shows, revivals of old favourites, musicals that are stage versions of popular films and ‘jukebox’ musicals, where the music is already very popular. These include Mamma Mia (Abba), We Will Rock You (Queen), Bat Out Of Hell (Meatloaf), Our House (Madness) and there are stage musicals featuring the music of Gloria Estefan, Boney M, Rod Stewart and many more. I’ll play you a selection of music from all kinds of musical theatre, along with some movie music too. Even if you have never seen a musical, you’ll certainly be familiar with lots of the music.
