Musical Theatre Must-See List 2019

New year, new idealistic musical theatre plans…

I haven’t done a post like this before, but after sharing quite a scrappy note of my must-see list on my Instagram stories and seeing people’s curiosity (which made my heart warm: you lot are my FAVES), I decided to share my 2019 must-see musicals list here as well. Everything’s linked by the title, and I hope you find some potential new favourites on there for yourselves too.

I’ll tell you right now that there’s no chance I’m going to see everything on this list, but I’m sure as heck giving it a good go. I’ve known for a while that 2019 was going to be a Good Theatre Year for me, with so many of my all-time favourites heading out on tour and some much-anticipated musicals transferring to the West End. So, if you too are one of the lucky souls living in Yorkshire surrounded by incredible regional theatre, you can find my top picks below. And keep scrolling for some West End highlights (and deals and discounts!) too…

Six The Musical at the Arts Theatre London

Expectations: 5/5

Reality: 5/5

Chronic illness friendly: 3/5

Cast your minds back to West End Live 2018, when six females stood behind their microphones on that stage and turned a relatively unheard of new musical into an overnight sensation. A mere four months later, and Six The Musical’s made its West End transfer, SOLD OUT the venue, and promised devoted fans a return following their upcoming UK tour. Not too shabby, right?

I’d been following the musical with interest ever since that West End Live performance, and I’d made my peace with the fact that I was unlikely to catch their run in London this year before they moved on. Making a six-hour round trip for a 75 minute show just wasn’t feasible for me… or so I thought, until the cast recording dropped on Spotify and I found myself booking train tickets the very next day.
