London Theatre Shows in April 2025

The 2024 Olivier Awards - one of the biggest events in the theatrical calendar - are on 14 April, and the winners will be some of the hottest shows in town. Some of the year’s most popular plays and musicals tipped to win include Bridge Theatre’s immersive Guys and Dolls, Hadestown, and Stranger Things: The First Shadow. The Easter Holidays also dominate the first half of April, and families can make the most of their time off together with a trip to see long-running shows like Matilda and Wicked.

Fans of new shows, don't miss out on Minority Report at Lyric Hammersmith! This visually stunning adaptation of the book and film, from the team behind Olivier Award-winner Life of Pi, is a must-see. Finally, Ian McKellen returns to the West End, playing Falstaff in a new version of Shakespeare's Henry IV.
