The Best Musicals To Watch This Winter

Francesca Herring October 4, 2022

Musicals are a very love-or-hate kind of thing. You either adore them, or you can’t stand them whatsoever. If you’re a theatre kid at heart and want to see one this winter, here is a list of some must-see musicals! There are so many out there.

Frozen the Musical

Certainly apt for a winter watch! We’ve all heard Let It Go a thousand times, but have you heard it on the West End? Take a trip to Arendelle (AKA the Theatre Royal Drury Lane) for some winter magic. The West End show has all the iconic scenery from the movie. It even replicates the special effects too. Even better, it features brand new music not featured in the movie. So, what better way to kick off winter than watching Frozen live?


In recent years Hamilton has taken the West End by storm. After it became available on Disney+, everybody wants to be in the room where it happened. And now you can too! Hamilton is playing all over the winter period at the Victoria Palace Theatre. Hamilton is the perfect musical for anyone. If you love history, you should see it. If you love musicals, you should see it. It’s a win-win for all the family. If you ever find yourself wondering what kind of life Alexander Hamilton had, go and see the musical!

If you want some drama this winter, this is the musical for you. Andrew Lloyd Webber is responsible for one of the most successful West End shows of all time. This show is a love story about a disfigured musical genius who falls in love with a beautiful soprano while he haunts an Opera House. With gorgeous costumes, spectacular dances and special effects, this show will leave you in awe. There is certainly a reason it’s been considered the most successful show on the West End of all time. 

Back to the Future The Musical

The Back to the Future films are always on at Christmas. It’s almost tradition. But now, you can go and watch it in the West End. Showing at the Adelphi Theatre, you can time-hop all over the shop with Marty McFly and Doc Brown. The show has won Best New Musical, and has sold out many times. It’s a hilarious spectacle guaranteed to fill you with nostalgia this Christmas.
