No Need to Choose With Mystery Theatre
With all the wonderful shows out there, how do you choose which one to go and see? We all like choice, but it is not always a good thing. When I am given options, I become extremely indecisive, often to the point of taking no action at all. If you're like me, then take away the burden of having to decide and opt for a mystery show. When I say a mystery show, I don't mean a detective story like Sherlock Holmes, but rather the show itself is a mystery. If you don't know what the options are, then there is no decision to make.
Surprise Theatre Until 16th July, Royal Court Theatre, £10
Uhm, what should I say here? Umm...well Surprise Theatre is on twice every Monday and Tuesday night at 6pm & 7.45pm; each is a one-off performance, written by various playwrights. You can add even more mystery to your evening by booking a Surprise Menu at the Court Canteen for £15.
Secret Theatre Dates are secret, Lyric Hammersmith, £15
Not even the makers of Secret Theatre know much about this. When will it be on? What will they be showing? How many performances will there be? Who knows. All they can tell you is that shows one and two are currently available to book, and you might see either a classic, an adaptation, or a new play.
UGC 21st February 2014 - May 3rd 2014, St James Theatre, £25-£49.50
UGC is a while off yet, but the creators are building up the anticipation by revealing snippets of information every now and then. So far, we know that UGC was a hit Broadway musical many years ago, that this will be the show's London premiere, and that it is directed by Jamie Lloyd. Best to book as soon as possible, as ticket prices increase every fortnight.
