Well shrek is closed so no chance of seeing that!

Matilda is a must see in my opinion!

Also charlie and the chocolate factory will be open by then and its safe to say that will be fantastic.

Also the bodyguard and jersey boys two brilliant shows.

I second Matilda, and would also suggest Singin in the Rain or Rock of Ages.

I suggest A Chorus Line or singin in the rain. Yes the latter is going on tour but you should see it in its current form its quite a spectacle!

Third for Matilda, it is great. Or gamble on Charlie, though that is bound to be great too.

Colour purple and the sound of music?

Broadway has been very good to me. But then, I've been very good to broadway.

I never understand these threads. Surely half the fun is picking which shows to see.

Anyway, avoid The Bodyguard. One of the worst musicals I have had the misfortune to sit through.
