CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and there is currently no planned re-opening time though it will not be before 1st June 2020 and is most likely to be September (according to some West End producers). Some shows have been cancelled, or closed early, but many are being rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with the changes - assume that anything posted for April to August is actually postponed or cancelled. It now looks likely that little will return till 2021.

What is currently on at London Coliseum (V376)


On one fateful day a poor poet and his beautiful daughter Marisnah find themselves on an adventure they will never forget. Kismet fed 1950 s America s appetite for eastern exotica. In the popular imagination Baghdad was a place of mystery, luxury and sexuality. Here, beautiful princesses, autocratic rulers, enlightened poets and court spin doctors play out a hilarious and dangerous story -part fantasy, part history. First performed on Broadway in 1953, Kismet was an overnight sensation winning 6 Tony Awards - including the only posthumous Tony ever awarded for Borodin s melodies.
