1 - Need some help with choosing a musical to go see. Taking my son to see a show in London for his birthday, he loves musicals but i dont know what to recommend? I could go watch 2 aslong as their are offers on etc, so what do you recommend. We'd probably buy one beforehand, then one at TKTS.

2- Anyone know of any 2 night hotel offers near the centre at all either for August?

If I stay awake, it must be good.

Depends what he likes I guess. Charlie could be a good choice. I loved We Will Rock You when I was that age, but that is Queen songs so guess it depends if he would prefer that or original musicals. If original Wicked could be a great idea and often decent discounts. Or something more serious can't go wrong with Les Mis or Phantom

I feel like Charlie, then Les Mis or WWRY or Mamma Mia?

Can you list what he has seen or is going to see then, might help so people can give you useful suggestions!
