[ADVERT]The Phoenix Theatre was built in 1930, and was home to Private Lives, a play starring Laurence Olivier in one of his first stage acting roles. The theatre is located at Charing Cross, and for 21 years, staged The Blood Brothers, one of the longest running productions in London's history.

But just because Blood Brothers has come to an end, does not mean the Phoenix has. Over the coming months there will be three plays to cast your eyes on.

1. Goodnight Mister Tom


The heartwarming children's novel by Michelle Magorian was previously turned into a film by Jack Gold in 1998. Set in the time of World War Two, a young and abused boy called William is evacuated to the countryside to live with the reclusive old Mister Tom. A strong friendship is built between them, which causes heartache when William's abusive mother summons him home.

The story has now been adapted for the stage, by director David Wood, and will play between the 27th November and the 26th January. The show is 2 hours and 20 minutes with matinees on Mondays at 1.30pm, and Tuesdays at 2.30pm. There will also be evening performance Tuesdays to Saturdays at 7.30pm. Tickets cost between £25-£50.

2. Midnight Tango


If you're a Strictly Come Dancing fan then you'll want to see this show. Argentine Tango World Champions, Vincent Simone amd Flavia Cacace are currently partnering Tracy Beaker star Dani Harmer and Olympic gymnast Louis Smith, respectively, in the ninth series and will be dancing with them on the Strictly Come Dancing Tour . But that is not all they are up to.

Vincent and Flavia have also been working tirelessly, choreographing the up coming dance production, Midnight Tango. It has also been co-produced by the former Strictly Come Dancing judge, Arlene Philips.

The show will be running from the 30th of January to the 31st of March. The performance will be at 7.30pm and cost between £26-£114.

Once


Based on the 2006 film of the same name, Once is a love story between a Dubliner and a girl from Eastern Europe. A shared love of music brings them together, and their affair is told through the songs they sing together in a traditional Irish pub.

The musical will be showing previews from the 16th March, and will officially go into production from the 19th April. Tickets are between £25-£108, with the choice of a 3pm matinee or 7.30pm evening performance.
