We are now theatreguide.london
After fifteen years we finally have the internet address we wanted from the start -
www.theatreguide.london
Don't worry if you have www.theatreguidelondon.co.uk bookmarked. It will remain live and current, as will all links to it. But now you can use the address that says what we've always been - the Theatre Guide for London.
 (During the changeover, some pages will retain the old address. But don't be confused - either address will take you to everything on the site.)
www.theatreguide.london


What we do
. . .
We offer authoritative, independent London theatre reviews. We also cover London's fringe and some theatre outside London, notably the annual Edinburgh Festival. We list upcoming shows and offer insiders' hints on saving money on theatre tickets.

Whether you go to the theatre every evening or are planning a single night out, whether you already know what you like or want help choosing a show, Theatreguide.London's reviews of past and current London shows will help you decide what to see and what to skip!


What we don't do . . .

We don't sell tickets. We don't take ads from shows. And we have no tie-ins with producers or ticket brokers.

So if a show is bad, we'll say so. And therefore if we say it's good, you can believe us. Click on one of the categories to the left to read our reviews of current London shows.


Who we are . . .

Our reviewers are not just fans, but experienced professional theatre critics. Click here to meet our critics.

Stay up to date . . .

Unlike other theatre cities, London doesn't have a defined 'season'. New plays open and old ones close every week throughout the year, so bookmark Theatreguide.London and
